Diamond Visionics improved its GenesisRTX software to facilitate the loading of NAVAIR Portable Source Initiative (NPSI) airfields. This software enhancement will be used by the U.S. Navy with the Deployable Mission Rehearsal Trainer (DMRT) Program and U.S. Marine Corps as part of Diamond Visionics’ KC-130T contracts.
Many airfields in the NPSI dataset are projected in a flat earth coordinate system from pre-generated legacy systems from various providers. Since GenesisRTX uses a round earth WGS-84 model, software was added to automatically do this conversion, resulting in the direct rendering of these airfields on-the-fly.
“The ultimate goal of the NPSI is to reduce the cost of dataset development through reuse,” according to Daniel Peters Sales Manager of Diamond Visionics. “The GenesisRTX software is uniquely qualified to provide the most up-to-date accurate scenes for our pilots of the U.S. Armed Forces (and) the ability to keep the pilots training on the most impressive visual scenes while reducing the previous legacy costs for the Government is a top priority for Diamond Visionics.”
