Abstract:

This report describes an experiment to study intervisibility anomalies between a Dismounted Infantry DI entity and a Tank entity as they interact in a distributed simulation exercise. The experiment involves the application of non-real-time algorithms to compensate for differences in geometric terrain representations in the DI and Tanks synthetic environments. From the results of the experiment, we conclude that by modifying a remote entitys perceived visibility we can eliminate or reduce intervisibility anomalies and that this approach is an effective solution in many cases. Also, based on the results, we recommend a stand-alone, off-line tool which can be used to help correct, minimize, or avoid the intervisibility problem areas in dissimilar databases.
