Abstract
Synthetic Natural Environment (SNE) represents the natural and man-made environment in which military simulations occur. This natural and man-made environment is subject to change in the real world. The importance of a changing SNE crosses all domains and types of warfare. Aircraft pilots expect to see a physical effect from their weapons fire and a soldier would expect that kicking a door should have an effect. Simulations that neglect these capabilities are providing incomplete training. However, current Army simulations model only a subset of dynamic terrain. Munitions effects are low fidelity and do not use physics-based models. Changes that can be made are sharply limited. These limitations are driven by specialized solutions and cross-application differences, e.g. visual systems versus SAF representations that cannot easily be reconciled. Dignitas Technologies proposes to use its industry leading experience in SNE, SE Core, and virtual applications to develop an advanced Dynamic Terrain architecture that can provide a foundation for next generation capabilities while also providing immediate and tangible functional gains for virtual programs such as CCTT and AVCATT.
