Abstract
The objective of this project is to investigate and demonstrate the feasibility of 4D GIS Based Virtual Reality for Moving Target Prediction. The proposed algorithms are based on the geospatial data and remotely sensed imagery analisys to provide a virtual scenario of moving targets prediction and possible aimpoint within the Common Operating Picture (COP). The proposed algorithms utilize new advanced technology, 4D GIS and virtual reality for 3D virtual terrain and animation simulation of moving target prediction. The project consists of two parts: (1) terrain-/ mobility-based prediction of a moving target, and (2) the motion simulation and visualization. The integrated method enables a single operator to manage the tracking and targeting of multiple moving ground, sea surface, and air targets through predicting, simulating and visualizing the possible future motion of the moving targets.
