Special Ops Using Army’s Prototype 3D Maps On Missions: Gervais | Breaking Defense  

The Army developed the One World Terrain software in order to create 3D maps for training simulations, but it has been useful enough to grab the attention of special operators. Now, the 3D technology is being used to plan real missions for deployed forces. The software allows a full rendering of an area after being scanned by a drone. With extremely detailed maps, operators are able to plan routes to best execute effective strategy. The technology could provide maps for all units of the US military or update maps after an altering event. The only problem is collecting the mass amounts of data required for such high renderings, something that the Department of Defense is working on.
