Abstract:

The Deployable Interactive Virtual Environment Sniper Trainer (DIVEST) is a innovative use of existing technologies in a novel application. Sniper training requires the ability of the trainee to exercise observations skills (reconnaissance), marksmanship skills, and as a fighting team - sniper and spotter - decision making skills. Using gaming technology, open source systems, instrumentation, and a scalable full movement "Play Box," DIVEST will bring state-of-the-art Virtual Environments (VE) to the high fidelity reconnaissance and marksmanship training requirements needed by the military's elite Snipers. Phase 1 of this effort will develop a prototype training system design using open source Commercial Off -The-Shelf (COTS)/Government Off-The- Shelf (GOTS) technologies that will allow the trainee freedom of movement, in a necessarily limited "play box", realistic viewing of "targets", real weapons and sites, and a high level of realism in interacting with the synthetic (or gaming) environment. The Phase 1 (Option) will iterate the design determined in Phase 1 and begin the technical determination of the interfaces and development necessary to build the prototype training system in Phase 2.
