Abstract
The goal of the Urban Time-to-Detect Simulator for Combat Developers project is to develop and demonstrate a physics-based, calibrated, multi-modal simulator to evaluate vehicle detectability in urban environments. The effort has the potential to significantly enhance simulators for vehicle development and evaluation as well as for unit training and mission rehearsals. In Phase I, we developed test metrics and methods, hardware and software requirements, and demonstrated an individually immersive simulator proof-of-concept. The primary objective of this effort is to provide a simulator capable of use for requirements development and specifications compliance testing. The prototype will include the capability to display scenes for unaided visual and electro-optical sensors and acoustics. The effort will include development of day (visual) and night (image intensifier) scenes with acoustic background noise and vehicle signatures. The acoustics effort will focus on source propagation through the urban terrain to the test subject. The simulator will consist of a virtual reality display, stereoscopic, high fidelity headsets, an operator controls, and computer control system. The effort is designed to demonstrate a brass board system by the end of year 1 and demonstration and delivery of a prototype for government use by the end of year 2.
