Space Simulation Using Computer Generated Imagery 871907

Researchers now have the means to evolve complex manned and unmanned space missions using all of their complex support systems in a fully adaptive visual environment. The expected interactive nature of space missions requires powerful, flexible and comprehensive simulation hardware and software to develop and verify concepts, systems, and procedures. Correlation of visual, sensor, and radar imagery is essential due to new sensor blending and fusion techniques that characterize complex systems and missions. Only through total visual, non-visual and mission environment simulation, combined with analytical tools, can reliable systems and missions be developed.The same can be said of the simulation-based training programs that must be developed for ground and flight mission crews. If maximum situational awareness cannot be trained through simulation, it may be too risky, too expensive or even too late to acquire during a mission.
