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


VI.C.03. Battlefield Visualization Technologies. By FY97, demonstrate and apply the use of these developments in a virtual reality environment for tactical and training applications. Technology deliverables will allow the soldier to be placed in a "real environment" with replicated actual terrain and climate driven weather, enabling a realistic view with a high level of detail for training and/or mission rehearsal exercises. Intelligence imagery will be used in conjunction with image perspective transformation technology to provide sub-ten meter (current baseline 30 meter) content and position reality.

Supports: Digital Topographic Support System, Army Command and Control Systems, Combined Arms Tactical Trainer, LAM, TDATD.
