Software for Real-Time, High-Resolution Terrain Information in Computing-Constrained Environments
NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center, CA, United States
Data adaptive algorithms are the critically enabling technology for automatic collision avoidance system efforts at NASAâ€™s Armstrong Flight Research Center. These Armstrong-developed algorithms provide an extensive and highly efficient encoding process for global-scale digital terrain maps (DTMs) along with a real-time decoding process to locally render map data.
Primary Application Area: Defense & Transportation
Technology Development Status: Prototype
Technology Readiness Level: TRL 5
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: The software intelligently interprets maps rather than requiring absolute retention of all data. This eliminates the need to maintain absolute retention of all data and achieves a much higher encoding process ratio than conventional software, allowing storage of a larger library of DTMs and enabling comprehensive map coverage continuously.
