Phase I SBIR award for dynamic terrain formats


Posted on May 2, 2010

Dignitas Technologies has been awarded a Phase I SBIR entitled “Dynamic Formats in Distributed Simulation Systems”. With this RDECOM-STTC contract, Dignitas Technologies and subcontractor CAE will investigate techniques for leveraging run-time publishing and procedural geometry technologies in GOTS Army applications, such as OneSAF. “There has been a substantial investment in technologies that allow flexible distribution of terrain data or on-the-fly derivation of terrain geometry from simple inputs.” said Mr. Jon Watkins, Dignitas’ founder and owner. “However, these technologies cannot readily be applied to major Army applications like OneSAF which expect terrain data to be pre-generated and pre-distributed. This SBIR will allow us to investigate ways in which this gap can be bridged, thereby providing more opportunities for reuse and
