Abstract
"Despite recent advances in hardware and software tools for modeling and simulation, significant limitations still exist in the ability to quickly create and render geospecific visual terrain databases (TDB's). Existing capabilities to generate terraindatabases are often tied to classified databases that cannot be used for many general-purpose applications. Worldwide coverage can only be provided if commercial and unclassified imagery sources can be exploited: 3) Improve the ability to provide geodeticaccuracy. Currently the tools capable of providing geodetic accuracy require the use of classified databases. Improvement in this area requires the ability to exploit commercial imagery to provide terrain databases with geodetic accuracy; 4) Improve thereal-time display utility of high definition terrain databases. Existing terrain database formats and rendering methodologies often require high-end image generation equipment to realize the full benefit of the available data in a real-time renderingenvironment.This SBIR proposal proposes to address these technology limitations and proposes technology advances that would significantly speed the process by which visual terrain databases are created. Integral to advances in the rapid scene generation capability isthe implementation of a database framework that enhances the ability to render these databases in a real-time mission environment. This effort will benefit CGF users by increasing t
