Research Institution
The Phase II Virtual Shooter project objective is the design, development, fabrication, assembly, and test of a 6 degree-of-freedom (DOF) device which will fully simulate the recoil reactions of a wide range of human shooters, hand guns, and ammunition types. This program is based on the work now being completed under Phase I of SBIR topic no. H-SB012.1-004, contract number HSHQDC-12-C-00039, revised completion date Dec. 31, 2012. The work under this Phase I effort has produced a computer based dynamic shooter model based on extensive data acquired under the Phase I research effort. This model will be used as the basis for the primary objective of Phase II; the delivery of a complete 6DOF virtual shooter device to DHS S&T Directorate, National Firearms and Tactical Training Unit (NFTTU). This proposed Phase II program extends over two years, the first (base) year primary deliverable will be a prototype 6 DOF Virtual Shooter device demonstrating all of the basic capabilities desired by NFTTU. At the end of the second year a prototype production design will be demonstrated and delivered, ready for acceptance by DHS and for commercial sales. The initial TRL for the virtual shooter device at Phase II project inception is estimated to be 3. At the end of Phase II, the TRL is estimated to be 7 for the device.
