TerraTools® 3.8 Supports Export to
OneSAF 5.0

October 25, 2010

Pittsburgh, PA - TerraSim has announced the availability of TerraTools support for OneSAF 5.0. The OneSAF export capability has undergone rigorous regression testing, and our exporter has been validated with the recently released OneSAF 5.0 runtime. These updates allow users to generate single cell, multi-cell, and subgeotile databases with UHRBs and dynamic UHRBs.

This new functionality is available to all TerraTools users with an Export OTF license and current support and maintenance. As with other TerraSim's previous OneSAF exporter updates, TerraTools users will be able to make minimal modifications to legacy OneSAF projects and re-export them to run under OneSAF 5.0. The TerraTools OTF Exporter continues to support all previous versions of the OneSAF runtime. The TerraTools OmniWizard has been updated to automatically create OneSAF 5.0 database projects.

Customers can access these TerraTools updates by downloading the newest TerraTools 3.8 Roll-up Patch from the TerraTools Support Site at www.terrasim.com/support.php (login required for support site access).

OneSAF 5.0 supports the use of dynamically placed UHRBs. Legacy UHRBs used in TerraTools projects prior to 5.0 can be upconverted for dynamic UHRB placement using the OneSAF 5.0 UHRB Validation and Upconversion Tool available at: www.terrasim.com/support/downloads/terratools3.8/tools.php.

In order to successfully load, view, and test a TerraTools-exported OneSAF 5.0 or OneSAF 4.0 terrain database, users must generate of Obstacle Avoidance (OA) files and Terrain Tiles within the OneSAF environment. Instructions for these post processing steps are available for TerraTools users at www.terrasim.com/support/downloads/terratools3.8/tools.php.

The TerraTools OneSAF exporter and TerraTools exporters for other runtimes are available as separately purchased plug-ins, allowing customers to mix and match components for the lowest price COTS solution for their terrain needs. Visit our plug-ins page to learn more.
