The ubiquitous wireless availability of information permits each of us to contemplate options and make decisions confidently and rapidly in our daily lives. In our personal automobiles, we couple information we glean from our cellular phones, such as electronic maps, internet restaurant reviews and shopping information with information presented to us by our car computer and our direct visual perception of the world to consider options and make real-time navigation decisions. Likewise, submarine sailors couple data gleaned from Electronic Chart Display and Information Systems with contact information and direct visual perception of the world to make safety-critical navigation decisions. The challenge of ubiquitous data availability, in our personal lives and on submarines, is an operators ability (or inability) to visually integrate multiple disparate data sets into actionable knowledge rapidly and accurately. Our ARES technology solution offers the use of Augmented Reality Visual Depth Aids (VDAs), Augmented Reality Objects, and carefully designed Augmentation techniques to visually present a cognitively integrated world of information to an operator.
