Abstract
One of the main characteristics in the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT) is the dependence on nighttime covert missions. Special Forces combat training is predicated on training as you fight. A major addition to improving realism in mission rehearsal training would be geospecific nighttime scenes. In addition, with the multifunctional capabilities of JSF, geospecific nighttime imagery could be an excellent addition for their geospatial databases. Currently, terrain databases throughout the world are built using feature extraction algorithms geared specifically to analyze daytime satellite and stereographic imagery. The utility of night imagery enhances the ability to model light points and light pools in geospecific visual databases for mission planning and mission rehersal.
