Abstract
We propose to develop a terrain database generation and editing tool for the Navy. This tool will have a simple interface designed for use by persons with no prior terrain tool experience. The tool will ingest standard and non-standard source data (elevation, imagery, and terrain features) and produce a VBS2 terrain database. The tool will allow trainers and trainees to edit the database to reflect what they see on the ground. We will place special emphasis on simplifying building creation and editing, since source data typically only contains the building outline with no interior or construction material information. We have significant experience developing database generation tools through our past performance and continuing research and development efforts. As such, we bring a host of relevant capabilities to bear on this problem. We have become adept at reacting to changing requirements and addressing capability gaps and shortcomings, and we will tailor and extend select technologies to create a tool that satisfies identified database generation and editing needs. Our focus is to deliver 3D interactive, no-cost-license database generation and representation capabilities to government organizations.
