Existing AR/VR/XR solutions used for Care Under Fire training provide promising capabilities but also have significant gaps: no existing solution delivers on the Army’s need for a medical training solution with haptics-enhanced immersion, Augmented Reality, and integration to the STE—real-time dynamic factors that would allow for the ability to inject and modify stressors into the CUF environment while training. The core design principles of SIMETRI’s Multi Modal Medical Training System (M3TS) concept are flexibility, allowing the system to work with a variety of commonly found human analogs, from top of the line human patient simulators to low cost manikins and even improvised sand bags; haptics insertion not limited to glove technology; iterative design to enable a roadmap of TCCC, PFC, and STE integration; portability to bring CUF training to the Warfighter and not require the Warfighter to travel to train, making the training more accessible and thereby more frequent, supporting sustainment of critical skills and limiting skill decay; and providing augmented reality through visual, auditory, and haptic interfaces that replicate immediate surroundings and stimuli experienced in a CUF scenario. SIMETRI has the engineering capability and domain knowledge to successfully execute agile and iterative prototyping of hardware, software, and integration.
