5 September 2003 Portable source initiative for distribution of cross-platform compatible multispectral databases

In response to popular demand, The Visual Group has undertaken an effort known as the Portable Source Initiative, a program intended to create cross-platform compatible multi-spectral databases by building a managed source set of data and expending a minimal amount of effort republishing run-time formatted proprietary databases. By building visual and sensor databases using a variety of sources, then feeding all value-added work back into standard, open, widely used source formats, databases can be published from this "refined source data" in a relatively simple, automated, and repeatable fashion. To this end, with the endorsement of the Army's PM Cargo, we have offered a sample set of the source data we are building for the CH-47F TFPS program to the visual simulation industry at large to be republished into runtime formats. The results of this effort were an overwhelming acceptance of the concepts and theories within, and support from both industry and multi-service flight simulation teams.
