Paper Abstract

We discuss the methodology and techniques employed in transforming our 3D characterization databases and 3D target models from our internal 3D format to a more universal 3D format. Currently our 3D characterization databases and target models are encoded in an internal custom file format that targets specific simulators set up to receive out data. In order to make our databases available to a wider audience within the modeling and simulation community, we have developed techniques to transform our databases into the more common Open Flight file format. We outline the steps taken to accomplish this. We discuss the methodology and show examples of backgrounds, object discretes, and target models. The developed characterization databases are used in digital simulations by various customers within the US Army Aviation and Missile Command (AMCOM). These databases are used in closed loop dynamic simulations to evaluate the performance of various missile systems.
