Annex A. Science And Technology Objectives (STOs)
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


IV.R.10. Electronic Terrain Board. Develop an electronic capability consisting of interactive 3D (thermal, MMW, radar) models, sensor simulations, and scene generation capability to evaluate ATR and human performance with second generation sensors, multi-sensor, target, and platform motion effects. Thermal models and temperature data will be used to develop "Painting the Night" virtual imagery (Level 2 CIG) for use in Battlefield Distributed Simulation. By FY95, validate 3D thermal models and deliver stealth simulators with a "night" data base of Ft. Hood to Dismounted Battlespace Battle Lab. By FY97, demonstrate the capability to generate a near real-time, multisensor scene rendering.

Supports: Dismounted Battlespace, Mounted Battlespace, Depth and Simultaneous Attack, Battle Command, Early Entry Lethality and Survivability, Combat Service Support, BDS-D, Distributed Interactive Simulation, Horizontal Technology Insertion, Target Acquisition, Hunter Sensor Suite, and Comanche ATR.
