Overview
Overview

  • Terrain Databases are used for various military operations.

  • Constraints:

    • Network bandwidth

    • Limited information/intelligence for a given area.

    • Different data formats between source data and final product.

  • Designed three different scenarios to test terrain data sufficiency:

    • Low Level (basic “on-the-shelf” data)

    • Medium Level (basic data plus significant analysis)

    • High Level (extensive analysis, additional intelligence)

Operational scenarios
Operational Scenarios

Assumptions for Different Scenarios

  • Low Level

    • Less than a week’s notice before the data is given to the commander.

    • Only imagery available will be off-the-shelf data.

    • Not detailed

  • Medium Level

    • Four weeks of contingency planning time was available prior to the operation

    • Better imagery will allow for elevation, precise base images, apparent large features.

  • High Level

    • Air and Ground control over the area for at least two months.

    • Availability of LIDAR collection equipment and cameras

Assumptions
Assumptions

Data Generation Assumption

  • A Team can produce a Medium Density product given:

    • 8 hour working days (Monday-Friday)

    • Minimal breaks

    • Trained Professionals who know how to create the database

    • Teams of 4 analysts are constantly available

    • Urban area that is 15 x 15 kilometers with a 3 to 4 kilometer “suburban” area

Digital terrain elevation data dted
Digital Terrain Elevation Data(DTED)

  • From DTED 5 to 1 the storage space required decreases to between 8-10% of the previous level.

  • Only about a 24 hour difference in man hours between best and worst.

  • Biggest concern is Operational status pre-deployment to boots on ground.

Conclusion data analysis
Conclusion (Data Analysis)

  • Data Development

    • Feature layers are manpower intensive

      • Roads, vegetation, and urban areas are easiest to create

      • Marshes, streams, and rivers are most difficult to create

      • Categorization of urban areas requires human intelligence

  • Analyzed Elevation in the Cost Analysis

    • Level 1 to Level 2

      • 55% Increase in Value for a 10% Increase in Storage Cost

    • Level 2 to Level 3

      • 25% Increase in Value for a 90% Increase in Storage Cost

    • Analyst Hours stay constant throughout Cost Analysis.

USMA Department of Systems Engineering


Future work
Future Work

  • Continue to Analyze the Cost versus Value

    • Individual attributes at varying levels of detail

    • Individual cost for varying attributes

  • Advisor and LTC Hendricks will continue work in Ft. Bliss

  • Move to gain an understanding between FCS and TEC
