Paper Abstract

A methodology has been developed and demonstrated for semi-automated generation of high fidelity terrain databases suitable for flight simulator applications. The technique has been demonstrated using electro-optic (EO), IR, and Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensor imagery. Extensions of the methodology are described for the generation of sensor image-based representations of vegetation terrain features. In contrast to polygon based databases in use by many simulators today, the simulator databases described here are gridded in nature. Finally, a realtime image generation architecture capable of exploiting this new database technology is currently in development, and is briefly summarized here.
