Variable Virtual Combat Mock-up (VVCM)
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The DSR Team consisting of DSR, Logicon Syscon and the Institute for Simulation and Training (IST) proposes to develop the architecture and system requirements for the construction of an advanced virtual display designated the ation of this architecture is the ability to introduce an easily reconfigurable, ship specific, fully interactive, individual console operator or Combat Information Center (CIC) team, combat system training device into a virtual environment, termed oncept of Operations (CONOPS) document, system design requirements and notional hardware architecture will be developed. The DSR team will develop an innovative design that will leverage existing, validated models, scenarios, and data bases as well as software available from S14A13 Tactical Advanced Simulated Warfare Integrated Trainer (TASWIT), Modular Semi-Automated Forces (MODSAF), Naval Semi-Automated Forces (NAVSAF), or other compatible, emulation-type, training software into the design of the VVCM. In addition, the DSR team will document the capabilities of state-of-the-art virtual reality devices such as head mounted displays to support this augmented reality environment. The DSR team will also develop two VVCM implementation options highlighting the cost vs capability tradeoff. The VVCM system options and training value added will be determined by conducting a cost/fidelity analysis based on the competing hardware/software architectures and the metrics for each. Phase II recommendations for implementing key components will be provided.
