PHASE I OF THIS SBIR WILL PROVIDE FOR THE FLOW CHARTING AND DETAILED, PLOTTING OF THE TRAINING DEVICE. THE TECHNOLOGIES CAPABLE OF INCORPORATION INTO THE DEVICE ARE VOICE, MOUSE, JOYSTICK AND TOUCH PANEL INPUT, REALISTICALLY BASED COMPUTER GENERATED GRAPHICSAND A NETWORKING STRUCTURE WHICH WILL ALLOW NOT ONLY MULTIPLE PARTICIPANTS (UP TO 512 TERMINALS WHILE MAINTAINING REAL-TIME INTEGRITY) BUT PARTICIPANTS WORKING IN A VARIETY OF LOCATIONS. PHASE II WILL PROVIDE FOR THE ACTUAL PROTOTYPING OF THE ASSEMBLED DEVICE AND, AS THESE TECHNOLOGIES ARE ALREADY IN RESIDENCE AND AVAILABLE AT WDA, PHASE I WILL INCLUDE A DEMONSTRATION OF EACH OF THE INDIVIDUAL COMPONENTS.
