National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA)
The National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA) delivers world-class geospatial intelligence that provides a decisive advantage to policymakers, warfighters, intelligence professionals and first responders.
Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA)
GameSim has established a CRADA with NGA. The CRADA is effective from 06/03/2014 to 06/03/2017. Christopher C. Clasen is the NGA point of contact for this research. The cooperative research focuses, primarily, on two topic areas:
Near Real-Time Data Fusion and Visualization
Research will be performed to further Conform’s process of fusing together a single 3D environment by supporting additional data formats and databases (e.g., LiDAR, FMV, and GIS databases), to create a more accurate and rich 3D environment, while still maintaining near real time performance.
The integrated scene can be viewed in the Conform 3D viewer or exported into other run-time formats. GameSim is interested in furthering its process of fusing together a single 3D environment by supporting additional data formats and databases (e.g., LiDAR, FMV, and GIS databases), to create a more accurate and rich 3D environment, while still maintaining our near real-time performance. In addition to the value of producing a single environmental representation from cross themed data to be viewed and exported, the system also facilitates the ability to analyze consistency across those products.
Low Bandwidth, Browser-based Visualization
GameSim has an active CRADA with NGA, “Rapid Geospatial Data Fusion, Visualization and Delivery.” There are two primary tasks being researched.
