Abstract : The primary objective of the digital sensor simulation investigations being conducted at the Defense Mapping Agency (DMA) is to establish an editing and analysis capability for the digital culture and terrain data bases. These data bases are being produced by DMA to support advanced aircraft simulators by providing an improved high, medium, and low level radar training capability offered by the digitally generated radar landmass images. In addition to radar scenes, visual and multi-sensor scenes are being digitally generated. For purposes of quality control and data base applicability investigations, DMA has developed the Sensor Image Simulator (SIS), a very high speed data base edit station and static scene simulator that allows for interactive query and manipulation of individual features in the data base displays and/or simulated sensor scenes to determine the corresponding data base elements responsible for the simulated features.
