Improving detection and acquisition in Janus(A) using the Pegasus database
Dau, Frederick W.
MetadataShow full item record
Janus(A) is a wargaming simulation in which opposing army forces interact within a pre-specified terrain database. The smallest unit of area in the terrain is 100 meters by 100 meters. Work is described which utilizes a one meter by one meter terrain database, allowing existing detection and acquisition algorithms to become more dynamic and more realistic. Development of a line of sight algorithm used to incorporate the higher resolution database is discussed. The resulting algorithm is demonstrated in a simulation of a target moving through obstructions contained within a limited terrain described by the one meter database.
