Paper Abstract

The U.S. Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM) Missile Research, Engineering, and Development Center (MRDEC) Advanced Simulation Center has recognized the need for re- configurable visualization in support of hardware-in-the- loop (HWIL) simulations. AMCOM MRDEC made the development of re-configurable visualization tools a priority. SimSight, developed at AMCOM MRDEC, is designed to provide 3D visualization to HWIL simulations and after action reviews. Leveraging both the latest hardware and software visual simulation technologies, SimSight displays a concise, 3D view of the simulated world providing the HWIL engineer with unprecedented power to analyze quickly the progress of a simulation from pre-launch to impact. Providing 3D visualization is only half the solution; data management, distribution, and analysis is the companion problem being dealt with by AMCOM MRDEC with the development of Fulcrum, a cross-platform data capture, distribution, analysis, and display framework of which SimSight will become a component.
