With SEGen Server, both users of CDB or other standard database formats can now benefit from significant cost savings and the ability to greatly streamline development of their applications.

Presagis™, a leading provider of commercial-off-the shelf (COTS) modeling, simulation, and embedded graphics software, announced today the commercial availability of SEGen Server (SEGen), a cost-effective server-based software solution for low-cost generation of high-fidelity, highly realistic synthetic environments for training, and development or prototyping of simulation applications.

Delivered to meet the growing requirements for cost-containment in the delivery of greater realism in simulation and training applications, SEGen can help organizations to address the complexity of high fidelity, large terrain database development and the related time and effort to produce them. With SEGen, Presagis has introduced an innovative new approach, based on procedural modeling technology, to develop databases that results in better return-on-investment on projects.

“Presagis has leveraged the power of procedural modeling technology for some time in delivery of solutions to our customers. Empowering the modeling and simulation community by making this innovation available as an off-the-shelf tool to support database production was a natural next step,” said Eric Simon, Vice President of Modeling and Simulation Solutions and Services at Presagis. “With SEGen Server, both users of CDB or other standard database formats can now benefit from significant cost savings and the ability to greatly streamline development of their applications.”

A procedural modeling engine, SEGen can automatically construct and serve highly realistic synthetic environments of any location on the globe at run-time, or offline to disk. The product eliminates the need to invest in costly imagery and database storage costs while also reducing resource heavy database generation tasks from simulation development pipelines. Technology leveraged in-house by Presagis to produce synthetic environments for its customers, the company is now making this innovative functionality commercially available to its users including HPC Project that will be using SEGen in delivery of their reconfigurable gunnery training simulation platform.

About Presagis SEGen Server
Presagis SEGen Server is a server-based software solution that provides the ability to automatically construct and serve highly realistic geotypical synthetic environments generated from vector and elevation source data at run-time or offline to disk. SEGen is as a stand-alone product that provides support for various levels of imagery, raster materials, and 3D models up to 1m resolution by leveraging cutting-edge procedural modeling methodology that quickly loads various levels of database resolution without the burden of deploying massive amounts of imagery or raster data.

Benefits of SEGen Server:

  • Leverage scalable, open standards-based solution to generate a synthetic environment suited to any domain
  • Generate realistic environments ‘on-the-fly’ of any geographic area on the globe
  • Break cost and time boundaries associated with development of very large or highly detailed databases through procedural modeling of synthetic environments
  • Generate offline database for other static formats and applications
  • Ensure correlation between simulation applications (such as a SAF) and visualization applications (such as visuals, sensors) and eliminate the need & time associated with developing different databases
  • Capitalize on source data by merging existing geospecific imagery and databases into synthetically produced SEGen scenes at run-time to produce a seamless transition from geospecific to geotypical data.
