Abstract
THIS RESEARCH CONCERNS THE USE OF COMPUTER ANIMATION FOR SIMULATING WEAPON/TARGET INTERACTION PHENOMENA. SUCH PHENOMENA ARE VERY DYNAMIC BY NATURE, AND ARE THUS GOOD APPLICATIONS FOR COMPUTER ANIMATION. THE FIRST STEP IN COMPUTER ANIMATION IS TO GENERATE A SET OF STATIC IMAGES THAT INCORPORATE HIDDEN SURFACE REMOVAL, LIGHT SOURCES, SHADING, AND OTHER SOPHISTICATED COLOR GRAPHICS RENDERING TECHNIQUES. THESE IMAGES ARE THEN MOVED ONTO A RECORDING MEDIUM SUCH AS VIDEOTAPES. THIS PROJECT WILL TAKE AN EXAMPLE WEAPON/TARGET COMBINATION THROUGH STEP ONE OF THE ANIMATION PROCESS. THE PRINCIPAL OBJECTIVE IS TO PRODUCE A TIME-PHASED SEQUENCE OF SOPHISTICATED COLOR GRAPHICS IMAGES THAT PORTRAY THE WEAPON/TARGET INTERACTION PROCESS.
