Abstract:

The primary objective of the digital sensor simulation investigations being conducted at the Defense Mapping Agency DMA is to establish an editing and analysis capability for the digital culture and terrain data bases. For purposes of quality control and data base applicability investigations, DMA has developed the Sensor Image Simulator SIS, a very high speed data base edit station and static scene simulator that allows for interactive query and manipulation of individual features in the data base displays andor simulated sensor scenes to determine the corresponding data base elements responsible for the simulated features. The SIS was installed at DMA in 1981, and is designed to play a key role in determining the applicability of prototype data bases for use in advanced training simulators, as well as to ensure the quality of, and coherence between, the various digital data bases prior to new data insertion into the master cartographic data base files.
