Abstract
Military environments with high complexity and high levels of motion can cause motion sickness, decreasing operational performance. By integrating a motion simulator and visual acuity testing system, a screening and desensitization system can be realized. The proposed effort wil demonstrate the feasibility of such a system and provide direction for future development efforts.
