Abstract
This research will define and demonstrate the appropriate technologies for AFDTC to establish a real time visual simulation capability. Careful review of existing government and commercial resources will serve as a basis for establishing a research and development path. This research will result in a capability that maximizes the use of visual simulation for test center support. This will be comprised of two main components.The first component is a method to rapidly transform stereo imagery into a digital terrain and cultural feature data base. The derived data base will be suitable for operations such as precision targeting, test even synchronization, virtual bomb drop debris fields and density level spheres. The data base generation process will be rapid, world wide, highly accurate and maximize operational utility. The second component establishes an optimal method for real time display. This display capability will be oriented towards test support functions including situational awareness, test control, engineering analysis and range safety. The display capability will be a reconfigurable, real time, open architcture that seamlessly accommodates visual,infrared and radar sensor scenes displayed on NT and Unix systems.
