Abstract:

The objective of this work was to create a 3D visualization that would be capable of giving commanding officers and others not intimately knowledgeable about VSWMCM operations a better understanding of the mission tasks involved and techniques used by the VSWMCM units. Our approach was to implement a real time mission visualization with the interactive 3D graphics application called PeopleShopTM. The application shows divers, mammals and other personnel performing the various steps in the VSWMCM task. This tool is useful for interactively viewing and changing the scenarios and provides a base line tool for planning and analysis. Using source material on the real time mission visualization we produced a professional quality videotape that serves as a tool for explaining and planning the VSWMCM mission and procedures. The system may be extended to applications such as tactical planning, concept development for advanced technology and immersive training.
