Abstract
The capability to modify terrain in real-time to create realistic modifications will provide training value by assisting in the visualization of the occurrence in the training scenario. For example, the capability to display the creation of craters with explosions or the tracks of vehicles as they move across soft terrain can add a great degree of realism for training. Diamond Visionics has developed the capability to construct and display dynamic terrain using its GenesisRT™ visual system. This capability exploits the design of GenesisRT™ to generate and display in real-time a terrain skin using elevation data rather than fixed polygon models, such as a terrain skins generated in OpenFlght format. The capability to modify terrain need not be limited to the terrain skin itself. For example, modifications to bridges and overpasses in real-time would provide training value as well. DVC has developed software that permits plowing of craters that can be used both for the modeling of plowing and the modification of any object in the same manner.
