Abstract
DRDC Ottawa has initiated an Applied Research Project to advance the state of the art in arctic environment modeling in synthetic environments. This survey was undertaken to discover those features important for arctic modeling as well as how to implement them in existing synthetic environments. Operating in the arctic has many challenges, such as: reduced mobility of troops and vehicles, limited communications and surveillance capabilities, logistical challenges of operating in an austere environment, and human performance difficulties in extreme weather. These and other challenges tend to have just two root causes: weather, and the condition of the terrain (permafrost. ice, cover etc.). Thus an efficient representation of the arctic relies on providing sources for weather and terrain conditions, and making the synthetic environment capable of representing the various consequences of those conditions. Specific recommendations for future development are made for all these factors.
