Abstract
Casualty evacuation (CASEVAC) in Iraq and Afghanistan has often been conducted remotely from the point of injury (POI) due to vulnerability of ambulances to attack. To improve this situation, the Heavy Armored Ground Ambulance (HAGA) has recently been deployed. However, no HAGAs have been available for stateside training. To remedy this, STI proposes the Combat Medic Simulator (CMS), employing STI"s patented Fused RealityTM visual system. Three versions of the CMS are proposed. The baseline version, the PC CMS operated with a gamepad, will allow a trainee to explore the HAGA"s features. The Fused Reality Open Space CMS will allow the trainee to be immersed in a virtual combat environment with a virtual HAGA, manually interacting with the virtual casualty (VIRCAS) and a scripted casualty transport team - while observing his own person in real time. Finally, the Fused Reality HAGA Mockup CMS will include a physical mockup of the HAGA and all the features of the Open Space CMS. A highly realistic M16 weapon trainer will be integrated with both the Open Space CMS and the HAGA mockup CMS allowing the combat medic to fire back during Care under Fire.
