Abstract
The objective of this project is to provide soldiers with the capability to train anywhere at any time without requiring installed infrastructure. Our focus is the design of a handheld device that could provide soldiers improved live, virtual, and constructive embedded training support while remaining within Ground Soldiers Systems low cost, weight and power limitations. Our design includes a 3-D handheld interface that provides: • 2D and 3D world viewing options, • connection to a tracking system which is able to monitor location and control movement within the virtual world, • click to shoot capability from 2D or 3D view with a hit requiring line of sight, and • networked data sharing and sand table type communications between team members. Our design leverages the TRX Personnel Tracking and Monitoring System. The TRX tracking system is able to wirelessly track the location and orientation of multiple individuals in an indoor (GPS denied) or outdoor environment. It does not require the training environment to be equipped with any sensors, communications devices, or other infrastructure. The system has a modular design and open architecture to facilitate interoperability with existing systems.
