Abstract
SIMULATION FOR VEHICLES HAS BEEN AN EXPLOSIVE GROWTH AND IS A MAJOR FACTOR IN TRAINING PROGRAMS. SIMULATION HAS NOT, HOWEVER, PROVIDED SIGNIFICANT HELP IN TRAINING THE FOOT SOLDIER IN REALISTIC COMBAT ENVIRONMENTS. THE GOAL OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF PROVIDING A REALISTIC VISUAL SCENE IN WHICH THE FOOT SOLDIERPRECEIVES ENEMY THREATS. THESE THREATS, EMBEDDED IN TERRAIN OBJECTS THAT CAN BOTH HINDER AND ASSIST THE SOLDIER, PROVIDE EXPERIENCE IN PROPER POSITIONING FOR ENGAGEMENT OR OTHER APPROPRIATE TACTICAL ACTIONS. NKH WILL PROVIDE AND DEMONSTRATE A SMALL AREA HIGH DEFINITION VISUAL SYSTEM WHICH WILL OVERLAY AN EXISTING TERRAIN TYPE VISUAL IMAGE GENERATION SYSTEM. THE HIGH DEFINITION SYSTEM WILL DISPLAY A LIMITED TASK AS VISUALLY SEEN BY THE SOLDIER DURING HIS MOVEMENT. THE MOVEMENT WILL BE ONE IN WHICH HE RISES FROM THE PRONE TO THE UPRIGHT POSITION. A TOP LEVEL DESIGN FOR A PHASE II FULL CONCEPT DEMONSTRATION WILL ALSO BE PROVIDED. SUCCESSFUL DEMONSTRATION OF THIS CONCEPT WILL SHOW DIRECT RELEVANCY TO ALL MILITARY COMBAT SCENARIOS INVOLVING PERSONNEL IN THE FIELD. APPLICATIONS TO ESCAPE AND EVASION ARE ALSO ENVISIONED.
