Training and Simulation

Military readiness – the “ability of military forces to fight and meet the demands of assigned missions” – is facing unprecedented challenges as the nature of warfare evolves and budgets remain constrained. Live training alone is no longer affordable, nor able to prepare troops quickly enough. As technology progresses, the military is looking to virtual training to help increase their readiness.

Types of Training and Simulation Technologies

Virtual Reality

Virtual reality, or VR, replaces your world with a virtual one in which you’re fully immersed and everything you see, hear and interact with is virtually generated. .

Augmented Virtuality

Augmented Virtuality is similar to Virtual Reality, with one exception – not everything you see, hear and interact with is virtually generated. Here real-world objects are merged into and interact with your virtual world, such as sounds, smells, sensations, movement and information.

Augmented Reality

Augmented reality is any sort of system that overlays data, 3D objects and/or video on top of your current view of the world, while continuing to let you see the world around you. It enhances your reality.

Computer-based Modeling and Simulation

The use of models to create and display simulations and analysis on a computer. These can be used for training, data analysis, experimentation and gaming.
