NIKE DHQ RADIV - Integration and visualization as a core process of staff work

As part of the Forte project NIKE DHQ RADIV, rapid data integration and visualization (2D-3D and mixed reality) is being developed in the area of operational management. It enables editing and presentation of staff work in different visualization programs.

Current and future assignments are extremely complex. Since the individual interdependencies can hardly be predicted in complex systems, it is imperative to provide a comprehensive picture of the situation in order to reduce this complexity and provide the decision-makers with the necessary management principles. Use in urban environments in particular requires the integration and visualization of enormous, often heterogeneous databases. On the one hand, the urban environment is extremely confusing and essential spaces are hidden from view; on the other hand, all infrastructure operators record a large amount of relevant information, the knowledge of which is essential for successful deployment. However, these data are often only accessible when needed and / or require interpretation by a technical expert before they can be used to good effect. This fact can be observed particularly well in the current ongoing experimental development of capabilities for operations underground.

NIKE RADIV is an essential sub-project of the overall NIKE program and will develop the process of rapid data integration and visualization of this information in a truly comprehensive Common Operational Picture. It is important to ensure the lateral continuity of different visualization systems in the entire reality - virtuality continuum (2D & 3D & Mixed Reality). Only individual applications are currently available, there is currently no collaborative collaboration option.

The RApid Data Integration and Visualization (RADIV) process enables simultaneous processing in

  • a two-dimensional planning environment (Command and Control Information System)
  • an easy to use three-dimensional view environment (initial HTML model)
  • a virtual first-person perspective environment
  • an augmented group perspective environment
  • an augmentation of the meeting environment
  • an immediate visualization of the immediate operational environment to massively increase the quality of the processing through improved perception and optimized collaboration. The Subsurface Operations Mission Tool (SOMT) will be the central interface.
