Abstract
THE OBJECTIVE OF OUR PHASE I EFFORT IS TO EXPLORE TECHNIQUES, AND DEVELOP APPROACHES TO PROVIDE SAFE REAL-TIME AUDIOVISUAL CUES FOR THE INBOUND AND IMPACT NOISES, CONCUSSION, DEBRIS, FLASH (NIGHT VISIBLE), SMOKE, AND DUST OF INDIRECT FIRE WEAPONS USED IN TRAINING AT THE NATIONAL TRAINING CENTER (NTC). THE APPROACHES WILL PERMIT DIRECT INTERACTION OF FIRE SUPPORT TEAMS, BE COMPATIBLE WITH MILES, AND TAKE MAXIMUM ADVANTAGE OF EXISTING TRAINING SUPPORT SYTEMS. THE EFFORT WILL LOOK AT APPROACHES THAT DO NOT RELY ON VEHICLE OR PREPOSITIONED UNIT LOCATIONS FOR THE CUES. INITIALLY, WORK WILL FOCUS ON EXPLORING TECHNIQUES FOR PROVIDING THE CUES WHILE GATHERING INFORMATION OF RELEVANT EXISTING AND PLANNED TRAINING SUPPORT SYSTEMS THAT CAN HELP SUPPORT THEM. THE ANALYSIS WILL INCLUDE A SURVEY OF KNOWN UNACCEPTABLE METHODS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN EXPLORED BY NTC SO THAT TIME WON'T BE WASTED IN THESE AREAS. ANALYSIS WILL FOCUS ON DEVELOPING A SFE TECHNIQUE OR "FAMILY" OF SAFE TECHNIQUES THAT PROVIDE PERSONNEL IN THE FIELD WITH REALISTIC REAL-TIME INDIRECT FIRE CUEW. PROVIDING CASUALTY DETERMINATION WILL BE A PART OF THIS ANALYSIS. THE FINAL REPORT WILL DOCUMENT THIS ANALYSIS AND PROVIDE A RECOMMENDED APPROACH TO IMPLEMENT THE BEST ALTERNATIVE.
