Project RACER

Rapid Action Combat Environment Recreation (RACER) is a protocol that utilizes several existing systems to capture terrain data on a target of interest, convert that data to a format that warfighters can utilize in a virtual training environment as it is today and creates a high fidelity digital elevation model which HD imagery can then be draped over. Also unique to RACER is the fact that the Ground Commander can participate through the use of an augmented reality system. 


1. Increase lethality on first pass/contact
2. Increase friendly force survivability
3. Use stuff we already have to max extent

How the process works (as proposed):

1. Gnd CC orders rapid planning to begin / RACER protocol
2. MQ-9 on-station uses LynxSAR 20A to map area
3. SAR and EO imagery are burned to DVD
4. Hand carried to DTOC / uploaded by Modeling and Sim Cell 
5. Software converts data to Digital Elevation Model and drapes imagery 
6. DTOC updates terrain file
7. DTOC M&S polishes scenario (people, vehicles, animals)
8. Mission Rehearsal via DTOC network
9. Replay as required
