The current state of Modeling and Simulation (M&S) leaves the bulk of megacity concepts severely under-represented, spanning from lack of source data formats and source data content, to run-time representations and associated models. Dignitas Technologies and teammates Edgewise and Cognitics will leverage extensive expertise in synthetic natural environments to provide a detailed and comprehensive representation of dense urban environments, such as megacities, in modeling and simulation applications. Team Dignitas proposes to conduct analysis, design, development, and experimentation to address a variety of challenges to M&S in dense urban environments.We will focus on developing and strengthening runtime capabilities because we assert that source data requirements should be derived from the definition and evolution of runtime capabilities.Our proposed work plan emphasizes and addresses several areas of traditional weakness in urban M&S environments.We propose to work towards technology solutions in several areas in parallel, and tackle the challenging issue of integrating the SNE services together to form the basis of a cohesive M&S megacity environment.Alone, a solution in each of our research areas will do little to enable dense urban environment SNE modeling.Together, they can demonstrate the possibility of a long-term solution applicable to future M&S training capabilities.
