AbstractAdvances in high-level architectures in both hardware and software now allow 3D software modeling and interactive simulation to be done from the desktop computer. This paper will address the increasing demand for 3D software modeling and simulation applications throughout the aerospace industry, what kinds of tools are currently available, how operational data is being used in real-world applications, and how to couple real-time data with terrain models and simulation tools to model and analyze operational environments. The following specific areas will be addressed: · The creation of real-world environments by merging virtual objects and ground data with interactive simulation and advanced graphics. · Recent advances in software modeling and simulation tools, which mirror general industry trends. · The ongoing effort to establish standards for modeling and simulation applications throughout the aerospace industry. · Examples of applications using high-level architecture-enabling technology like the visual display of detailed terrain data, drag-and-drop imagery, the enhancement of graphical performance without compromising the quality of rendered data, and expanded support for raster file format images.
