Abstract:

The purpose of this thesis is to compare and analyze the effects of the JanusA default terrain database and a JanusA modified terrain database on a modeled Javelin operational test. An eight meter resolution terrain database was used to create the modified JanusA terrain. The eight meter resolution terrain database was extracted from the Perspective View Generator and Analysis Systems for Unmanned Sensors Terrain Database Creation System. Analysis using nonparametric statistics and graphical methods showed that the vegetation code distributions for the default terrain and the modified terrain were not the same. Three scenarios were run using each terrain file, and when the results were compared, the detection ranges were found to be different in the areas where intense vegetation modifications had to be made.
