Research Institution
Large numbers of nurses, emergency medical technicians, emergency physicians, Army medics, and medical personnel from different backgrounds need to be trained quickly for chemical , biological and radiological threat detection, assessment and response .The solution to such a complex training problem lies in deploying high-technology based training solutions. A high fidelity intelligent simulation system is proposed here, which will take advantage of the limited amount of expertise existing in the fieldof CBR threat detection, assessment and management. High cognitive-fidelity realistic simulations will provide realistic trauma training to medical personnel. Simulated case scenarios will train medical trainees at different levels of beginning knowledgeto become proficient in CBR threat management. The proposed intelligent simulation system could be rapidly deployed to provide just-in-time training. This unique system will be scalable to allow various types of deployable medical training.
