Research Institution
Urban environments are a central focus of military operations and by extension, training. The military simulation community has put significant effort into the representation and visualization of buildings and urban clutter. While there is basic simulation support for underground structures, progress is hampered by a lack of source data and widely available tools to support manual or automated generation of underground structures. This lack of data and tools has made underground data scarce in training databases. Team Dignitas proposes to use ARA’s Urban and Underground Model Generator (U2MG) technology as the basis of an effort to directly extend the underground structure generation capabilities and functionality of major Army programs such as SE Core DVED and OneSAF. Team Dignitas will not only develop government purpose rights software for underground structure generation, we will also provide proof of concept integrations of our technology directly into SE Core DVED and RDECOM RUGUD. In addition, we will work with the OneSAF program to ensure appropriate run-time database structures and functionality are available to take advantage of underground structures. Thus, Team Dignitas will address the end-to-end spectrum of capabilities, including direct support for application of the technology.
