MetaVR SOTACC Village MOUT Site at Yuma Proving Ground

Following the delivery to the Special Operations Terminal Attack Controller Course (SOTACC) facility, Yuma, AZ, of geospecific 3D terrain of the Yuma Proving Ground (YPG) in spring 2016, MetaVR has recently built on the terrain a replica of the SOTACC Village MOUT site at YPG.

The virtual MOUT site, built from 30 cm per-pixel imagery and 2 meter per-post elevation data, contains mobile storage containers (many with modeled interiors), fortifications, retired/stored equipment, and other elements from MetaVR’s 3D content libraries geolocated from aerial imagery reference on the terrain.

The overall Yuma Proving Ground (YPG), Yuma, AZ, 3D terrain was built from 30 cm imagery of YPG and 2 to 10 meter elevation with an inset of 2 cm imagery of the Prospect Square area. The total area of YPG coverage is 57 sq km.

A total of 129 models of various buildings and other structure and 1,688 vegetation models populate the replica MOUT site.

In addition to the the SOTACC Village MOUT site, another culture area of interest on the terrain is the modeled Laguna Army Airfield, which MetaVR also built with 30 cm per-pixel imagery, and contains a geospecific runway, runway lights, runway signs, two geotypical hangars, and other cultural features.

The YPG terrain runs at 60 Hz in MetaVR's Virtual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG) version 6.1.

The YPG terrain dataset is available on MetaVR’s CONUS ++ Southwestern region 3D terrain. The CONUS++ 3D terrain, in round-earth Metadesic format, is available for purchase to all MetaVR customers who are on active VRSG software maintenance and are US Government agencies or contractors (for official use only). For US-domestic use only, not available for export. The terrain can be viewed only with a valid VRSG version 6.1 or greater software license with valid software maintenance.
