Diamond Visionics features Zero Latency Entity Tracking

Vestal, NY – July 10, 2017 – Diamond Visionics’ has released GenesisRTX version 10.5.2 with technology upgrades and feature enhancements that support Diamond Visionics priority on high-fidelity and higher quality visuals. GenesisRTX 10.5.2 includes Zero Latency Entity Tracking in the Out-The-Window mode or the Non-ITAR GenesisSN EO/IR/NVG among the feature updates.
New Tracking Features such as:
• CIGI Sensor Control – Track Mode 5
• CIGI Sensor Response
• CIGI Sensor Extended Response
• CIGI Position Request – View
• CIGI Position Response – View
• Automatic LOS testing via Component Control
• Automatic Gate rendering via Component Control
• Dynamically Adjustable tracking frustum via Component Control
• Automatic View look-at entity via Component Control
• Automatic Entity look-at offset via Component Control
Normally the host implements entity tracking by querying the IG for the entities position and then sending a message to orient the camera toward the entity or render the tracking gate as an overlay. This cycle introduces latency, our GenesisRTX eliminates this by doing it automatically without the host controlling where the camera looks or gate is rendered. In addition, typical tracking uses expensive image analysis to recognize the target and determine the position on the screen. Our application efficiently and accurately calculates this from known information for an efficient solution.
Diamond Visionics Sales Manager Dan Peters states, “The GenesisRTX engine now has visibility checks built in where the tracking takes into account whether the entity is visible and can detect occlusion by any object in the scene including 2D and volumetric clouds which are necessary for the improved training troops demand today.”

Diamond Visionics vastly improves loading of NPSI Airfields

Vestal, NY – June 12, 2017– Diamond Visionics’ is announcing today that their GenesisRTX software has been greatly improved to facilitate the loading of NAVAIR Portable Source Initiative (NPSI) airfields. This software enhancement will be utilized by the US Navy with the DMRT and US Marines in our 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”, said Daniel Peters Sales Manager of Diamond Visionics, “is to reduce the cost of dataset development through reuse. The GenesisRTX software is uniquely qualified to provide the most up-to-date accurate scenes for our pilots of the US Armed Forces. 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.”

Tim Woodard of Diamond Visionics to speak at Image Conference

Vestal, NY – June 21, 2016 – Diamond Visionics’ announces that Tim Woodard has been chosen to speak at this year’s Image Conference at the University of Dayton, River Campus, Dayton, OH. Mr. Woodard will be speaking on Wednesday, June 29, 2016.

Tim Woodard has published and presented previously at Image, GTC, I/ITSEC, ASQ, and ITEC conferences. Mr. Woodard’s speech entitled, “Deferring Commitment For Scene Content Generation” pertains to Image generation software that has traditionally been based on the concept of loading pre-computed databases, and rendering them utilizing a scene-graph approach. Modern hardware provides a number of mechanisms which can enable deferring commitment regarding the form that scene data takes at run-time, eliminating the need for pre-computing scene content. By utilizing parallel processing and modern OpenGL techniques, scene content can be generated “on demand”. The result is that an order of magnitude increase in performance can be achieved when compared to previously available rendering methods. This paper will cover some of the available techniques and how they impact overall rendering performance and fidelity.

Mr. Tim Woodard is the Chief Technology Officer at Diamond Visionics, with over 19 years of experience specializing in the design and development of software architectures for real-time PC-based image generation using Agile development processes, advanced C++, and modern OpenGL techniques. Mr. Woodard has received patents for the real-time simulator database generation technology which forms the basis of Diamond Visionics’ GenesisRTX worldwide database generation system. GenesisRTX provides high-fidelity generation, visualization, and manipulation of visual databases at run-time directly from source data on low-cost PC-based platforms, eliminating the need for traditional labor-intensive off-line database production processes. Tim has served as the Director of Engineering, Director of Research and Development, and principal investigator for a number of Phase I, II, III US Government Small Business Innovative Research Grants.

Diamond Visionics Awards “Most Innovative Design” Prize at “IT FLIES USA 2016” Competition

Diamond Visionics, a provider of 3D visualization and image generation, gave a cash award to the winners of the “IT FLIES USA 2016” competition at the University of Dayton. The competition, sponsored by Merlin Flight Simulation Group, featured student teams from the University of Dayton and the University of Manchester in England who created their own designs of a fixed-wing or rotary-wing aircraft. Test pilots from the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base evaluated each presentation and then flew the aircraft in the university’s newly upgraded visual on the MP521 simulator.

Diamond Visionics, creators of the GenesisRTX visual graphics used during the competition, awarded a cash prize for “The Most Innovative Design” to Manchester University’s rotary wing design team of Cian Hanley, Matthew Hogg and Mitchel Follet.

“What made this competition truly unique” said Daniel Peters, Sales Manager of Diamond Visionics, “is that the University of Dayton has invested in a fully integrated Flight Simulation System and instructor station, one of the few universities in the U.S. to have done so. This enables the students to test their designs with the same visual software as the military and commercial pilots training around the world.”




USAF School of Aerospace Medicine Selects Diamond Visionics GenesisIG

The United States Air Force’s School of Aerospace Medicine at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base will use Diamond Visionics’ GenesisIG for its Operational-Based Vision Assessment (OBVA) Simulator Image Generator Technology Insertion Program.

The OBVA requires the highest level of fidelity possible to allow researchers to investigate and validate the relationships between operational visual performance and current visual standards, possible future vision tests, and other measures of visual performance.
The School of Aerospace Medicine at WPAFB chose GenesisIG because of its need to conduct visual performance research to correlate clinical measures of ocular health with operational task performance. The school found GenesisRTX provides this capability along with the ability to run from source anywhere in the world, no longer requiring costly and time-consuming pre-built databases.
