Paper Abstract

Today's modeling and simulation world is rich in 3D models and distributed architectures. There is, however; a need to interject operational intelligence data into this environment. The ability to represent intelligence information in a realistically modeled environment provides a unique, exploitable, global awareness capability. We have designed and implemented the global awareness visual information system protocol data unit (PDU) generator, a prototype interface that allows information in intelligence databases to be data sources for distributed interactive simulation (DIS) capable systems. The interface provides tools, using middleware, to create database views and an agent to obtain database information for publication as PDUs. The current implementation provides information from sample intelligence databases for visualization in an off- the-shelf 3D DIS viewer.
