Abstract
Due to the change in the nature of security and armed conflict in urba areas, it has become an area of conflict that modern warfare must adapt to. In order to successfully patrol, secure and engage the enemy in urban terrain where unknown buildings and structures provide cover and vantage points over our Forces, we need to develop and deploy an advanced capability to improve situational awareness in these arenas while simultaneously minimize friendly force casualties. Significant to this research to solve this problem will be to the ability to equip the modern Soldier with the capability to cooperatively fuse data from both Ground and Aerial Systems to quickly map the internal structures of buildings and disseminate the information. This requires a need for structure mapping and visualization capability that can be quickly captured, processed, disseminated and viewed while keeping the Soldier out of the direct line of conflict. In this proposal, Technical Solutions, Inc. (TSI), with our academia partner the University of Florida Center for Intelligent Machines and Robotics (CIMAR), will address these challenges and outline the research, development and delivery schedule necessary to solve the urban structure mapping challenge and meet the 3-D presentation requirements.
