Abstract
Sonalysts, Inc. proposes leveraging our Team's extensive research and development experience with state-of-the-art defense and commercial training and visualization technologies to develop an effective Variable Virtual Combat Mock-up (VCCM). Key Phase I objectives will include: defining the training concept of operations; identifying, assessing, and developing/applying the supporting required technologies; and finally, defining the architecture for the VVCM. Our focus will ensure training objectives for the virtual CIC/CDC team training system and a sound technical response are complimentary and technically feasible. A broad range of virtual technologies will be investigated to determine suitability to develop the flexible, reconfigurable virtual environment. Virtual reality (VR) technologies possessed by our proposing team and commercially available, will be assessed. The most promising will be applied to ensure our technical approach is effective and economical. To accelerate development and lower cost, we will leverage appropriate existing trainer architectures for the foundation of the VVCM. We will also exploit existing information resources, combat systems, and trainer architectures (e.g., Battle Force Tactical Trainer (BFTT), internet) to innovatively broaden the training opportunities presented by this topic area.
