Primordial Ground Guidance now integrates with ATAK.
Here’s a brief description of the features supported:
What can it do?
- Fast route. Ground Guidance generates the fastest route between two points.
- Movement projection. Movement projection enables one to predict the likely location of an entity (e.g. a downed pilot or sniper fleeing an area) given a last known location, travel duration, and transportation mode.
- Urban routing. In addition to routing in mountainous and woodland terrain, Ground Guidance supports urban routing.
- Alternate routes. Ground Guidance supports planning any number of alternate routes between two points. This facilitates planning primary, alternate, contingent, and emergency (PACE) routes before or during a mission.
Intervisibility. Ground Guidance analyzes man-made and natural features to calculate accurate view sheds. Ground Guidance is unique in that it incorporates an optical vegetation penetration model to perform its analysis.
Randomized routes. Ground Guidance supports generating randomized routes to reduce predictability during patrols and commutes.
Multi-resolution routing. To achieve rapid rerouting on resource-constrained handheld platforms, Primordial developed a patent-pending multi-resolution routing algorithm that starts with a coarse map and refines routes over time.
Differential routing. In addition to fast and concealed routes, Ground Guidance supports maximizing relative advantage along a route. Route check. Similar to Microsoft Word’s spell check, Ground Guidance’s route check highlights potential dangers along a route (e.g. steep terrain, marshy areas, and exposed positions).
