Common Databases compatibility across multiple IG platforms is an exceeding difficult task. Historically, every image generator used its own database format, and modeling tools were proprietary and exclusive to the image generator they supported. Compounding the problem is the fact that it is not simply one database that must be shared across different IG platforms, but rather the multiple databases (such as SAF, IR and Visual) required for each simulation that must be perfectly correlated with one another and across multiple IG platforms. MGI's goal for this SBIR is to develop a process that is as automated as possible, supported by a GUI, for the conversion of existing databases through the use of our expertise in the data exchange environment. MGI would develop a framework (either with SEDRIS or other common formats to achieve this goal). MGI proposes to commercialize the GUI and the process by including the capability in our COTS CreatorPro option package tilted InteroperabilityPro. MultiGen modeling tools are used as core modeling tools by all major image generator manufacturers. By incorporating the conversion process and GUI into Creator, the tools immediately will have nearly universal availability to the simulation community in a COTS environment.
