Abstract:

This report is an overview of the Dismounted Infantry Simulation DISim Software Test-Bed. DISim is software that allows researchers to test new simulation and visualization algorithms for real-time virtual simulation. Targeted to the simulation needs of the ground warfighter, the algorithms developed using the DISim test-bed are high-resolution real-time effects for simulation, training, and mission rehearsal. C based on the Linux operating system, the software uses commercial software for graphics and realistic human figure animation. This report will introduce the DISim, detail its battlefield simulation features, describe the software architecture, and present a brief overview of algorithms developed using it.
