Abstract : The Advanced Visual Technology System (AVTS) was developed under the auspices of the Air Force Human Resources Laboratory (AFHRL) to satisfy the demanding TACAIR mission visual system requirements. In particular, the requirement for low level flight through a high density, wide FOV, rolling terrain environment with a large number of moving models on and above the terrain surface posed a formidable system design problem. New developments were required in the critical areas of VDB structure, feature selection, priority, load management and blending to achieve the requisite scene content. This paper will discuss the advancements made in these areas, and show that an integrated system design process was essential to the success of the project. (Author)
