We propose an innovative approach to feature-preserving 3D thumbnail creation in this research. The 3D thumbnail system aims to help the user efficiently browse 3D models in a large 3D database. The user can browse multiple 3D models with pre-generated 3D thumbnails, and view them from different angles interactively. The 3D thumbnail is a simplified version(More)
In February 2009, the Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) at the University of Southern California was contracted to develop a training system for Soldiers and Marines. The goal of the training system was to reduce the number of casualties caused by improvised explosive devices (IEDs). Over the next five months, a team at the ICT drew on(More)
Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) cause more than half of Coalition casualties. In 2009, the Institute for Creative Technologies (ICT) developed a research prototype for a mobile counter-IED training system. This system—the Experiential Counter-IED Immersive Training Environment (ExCITE)—was described at I/ITSEC 2010. Since that time, researchers at the(More)
