Interactive Networked Battlefield Simulation Training Technologies

A global defense contractor created a "network-centric warfare" (NCW) battlefield simulation product for the US military by combining:

  • SCALABLE network simulation software
  • Real-time wargaming simulation tools from VT MAK
  • Custom battlefield scenario definitions

The training environment offers a highly realistic experience that includes:

  • Red|Blue force capabilities
  • Intelligent entities
  • Geo-located 3D terrain mission space
  • Electronic warfare modeling
  • Internal Intelligence / Surveillance / Reconnaissance (ISR) video
  • Multiple real-time interactive human interfaces

All of the interactive communications between warfighters on the ground and in the air in support of the wargaming can be varied and evaluated for effectiveness across a wide range of real world situations.
