The Smart Target Model Generator (STMG) is an AFRL/MNAL sponsored tool for generating 3D building models for use in various weapon effectiveness tools. These tools include tri-service approved tools such as Modular Effectiveness/Vulnerability Assessment (MEVA), Building Analysis Module in Joint Weaponeering System (JWS), PENCRV3D, and WinBlast. It also supports internal dispersion modeling of chemical contaminants. STMG also has capabilities to generate infrared or other sensor images. Unlike most CAD-models, STMG provides physics-based component properties such as strength, density, reinforcement, and material type. Interior components such as electrical and mechanical equipment, rooms, and ducts are also modeled. Buildings can be manually created with a graphical editor or automatically generated using rule-bases which size and place the structural components using rules based on structural engineering principles. In addition to its primary purposes of supporting conventional kinetic munitions, it can also be used to support sensor modeling and automatic target recognition.
