Northrop Grumman has been developing virtual immersive training
environments for DoD and Commercial customers for years, working with industry
leaders in Serious Gaming, 3D rendering and virtual environments. DoD
Program Managers leverage these technologies to immerse Warfighters in a virtual
environment that closely replicates the actual environment they will experience
in operational missions.
Northrop Grumman is developing several virtual immersive training initiatives
that are applicable to the USSOCOM Virtual Mission Rehearsal requirement and
pre-mission training. The Northrop Grumman Virtual Immersive
Portable Environment (VIPE Holodeck™) provides a high fidelity visualization
environment adaptable to any location and capable of being set up in an existing
office, a simulation center, or even a tent. The VIPE Holodeck™ provides a low
cost scalable and adaptable visualization simulation and training environment.
This solution maximizes training time and helps reduce the overall cost to
train. The system can be networked to provide multi-player/multi-user
visualization for state-of-the-art gaming, telepresence and simulation.
The VIPE Holodeck™; provides a state-of-the-art visual environment for use in
Live, Virtual, Constructive (LVC) simulations. Current scenarios can run
virtually, using 3D goggles/glasses, or even displayed on laptop and desktop
