Paper Abstract

The US Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) and the Redstone Test Center (RTC) has formed the Scene Generation Development Center (SGDC) to support the Department of Defense (DoD) open source EO/IR Scene Generation initiative for real-time hardware-in-the-loop and all-digital simulation. Various branches of the DoD have invested significant resources in the development of advanced scene and target signature generation codes. The SGDC goal is to maintain unlimited government rights and controlled access to government open source scene generation and signature codes. In addition, the SGDC provides development support to a multi-service community of test and evaluation (T&E) users, developers, and integrators in a collaborative environment. The SGDC has leveraged the DoD Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) ProjectForge (https://Project.Forge.mil) which provides a collaborative development and distribution environment for the DoD community. The SGDC will develop and maintain several codes for tactical and strategic simulation, such as the Joint Signature Image Generator (JSIG), the Multi-spectral Advanced Volumetric Real-time Imaging Compositor (MAVRIC), and Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD) Test and Evaluation Science and Technology (T&E/S&T) thermal modeling and atmospherics packages, such as EOView, CHARM, and STAR. Other utility packages included are the ContinuumCore for real-time messaging and data management and IGStudio for run-time visualization and scenario generation.
