Abstract
The focus of the Innovative Rendering for Simulation Phase II effort is to implement the proof-of-concept Unified Physics-based Rendering System (UPRS) in order to deliver new capabilities to the modeling and simulation community.UPRS will provide the government with a tailored HW and SW solution optimized for the specific simulation rendering needs.UPRS will be delivered as a Government Open Source real-time rendering framework that will address the complete sensing system development life-cycle by delivering both raster and ray trace rendering algorithms.UPRS will be operationally demonstrated in an Hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) facility during this effort, and supporting tools for post-simulation data analysis will also be developed.The Phase I benchmark testing framework will be employed during the Phase II effort to collect performance and fidelity metrics of UPRS and other rendering packages under various system configurations. As UPRS is designed, implemented, and modified, the benchmark testing framework will be used to track performance on several variations of current generation computing hardware.Analysis of the results gathered from benchmark testing will be used to prescribe system configurations for users to deploy UPRS. Reports will also compare UPRS performance and fidelity with that of existing rendering solutions.
