Abstract
Vexcel Corporation together with Hughes Training, Inc. Advanced Systems Facility proposes a multi-source terrain database generator for the Vetronics Crew Display Demonstrator system. The system would incorporate information from existing VCDD databases, mapping products, and new imagery to produce digital terrain models and environments for combat vehicle simulation. The system would be hosted on a high speed graphics workstation such as the Silicon Graphics Iris family of computers, to take advantage of the state of the art in display and visualization technology. A Unix / C software environment would be used, and the systems interface would be integrated into the VCDD interface development software. Also the VCDD Systat software capabilities would be used. The resulting prototype will prove feasibility of image-based extensions and enhancements to the current VCDD terrain database simulation capabilities.
