The Automated Generation of Underground Structures (AGUS) project is focused on advancing the state of the art in M&S applications’ ability to represent and train on features such as transportation tunnels and simple natural caves. This RDECOM STTC research effort has developed a process for the generation of underground structures for use in both visual and non-visual formats.
The Correlation Synergy (C-nergy) toolsets provide the ability to conduct automated and interactive testing of data integrity and correlation between modeling and simulation geospatial datasets.
The Construction Equipment Virtual Trainer (CEVT) research testbed is a research effort developed jointly by PEO-STRI and RDECOM. The CEVT testbed provides for highly detailed terrain skin and environment changes.
Dignitas is developing technologies that model the normal patterns of daily life in an urban area. This project seeks to replicate typical city life to provide a realistic background to be used with constructive and virtual simulation systems for training, analysis, and research.
Dignitas Technologies has supported RDECOM and PEO-STRI on a series of research projects advancing the state of the art in dynamic terrain (DT) technologies, with a particular focus on providing government purpose rights functionality that can be transitioned to major Army M&S programs. Key categories of technical accomplishment include capabilities to generate dynamically-constructed visual models, place arbitrary holes in buildings and on the ground, interactive digging, and model physics and weather effects.
GIFT is an empirically-based, service-oriented framework of tools, methods and standards to make it easier to author computer-based tutoring systems (CBTS), manage instruction and assess the effect of CBTS, components and methodologies. GIFT is being developed under the Adaptive Tutoring Research Science & Technology project at the Learning in Intelligent Tutoring Environments (LITE) Laboratory, part of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory – Human Research and Engineering Directorate (ARL-HRED).
The TRACR Ultra Lite (TÜL) app for Android serves as a mobile thin-client responsible for manipulating targets by interfacing through TRACR, a common target controller used at live-fire Army target ranges. The objective is to provide training facilitators at live fire ranges the control over range targets/devices and receive training results and status without the need to rely on personnel in a range tower. TÜL is capable of working in both lane based and maneuver ranges.
The Tactical Terrain Analysis (TTA) app provides advanced terrain analysis algorithms to the dismounted soldier. TTA runs on Android and iOS mobile devices and supports functionality such as line of sight (LOS), terrain modifications, routing and more. TTA runs on the Layered Terrain Format (LTF) which can be built from high resolution Light Detection And Ranging (LIDAR) data.
The Veritas 3D Viewer provides a low-cost, extensible, government purpose rights application to view virtual simulation events. Virtual programs often have limited access to full up manned simulators and expensive end-use image generators. The Veritas 3D Viewer provides a tool for development, integration, test, and demonstrations.
