Secure Procedural Training with VR and AR
One of the biggest advantages of using VR training over traditional training is because it is absolutely risk-free. Trainees can safely train without the fear of accidents. They make decisions, and reflect on the consequences if they choose wrong. This makes them feel safer, more focused and not afraid to take risks. The trainees therefore build new skills much faster compared to traditional training. Because VR is such an immersive experience, it is easier for you to remember what you learned.
We are developing a proof of concept on a total system for learning, procedure training, and operational use. This is done in collaboration with NATO’s technology and cyber hub NCIA. For NATO and The Norwegian Armed Forces, available time for education and training is limited. Time and resources spent on traveling and accommodations is ineffective. There is also an increase in complexity of digital systems. Modern equipment demands more courses and training than before.
The user can start with simple exercises like maintenance, disassembly and reassembly of equipment, maintenance and troubleshooting of equipment. They can also do more advanced training on procedures for battle preparation. We have made this kind of all-purpose equipment training for the handgun MP7, the grenade DM61, the HK416 assault rifle and the stove MSR XGK for Norwegian soldiers.
Soldiers can train for planned military operations, learn procedures and consequences.
CORE makes it possible to conduct equipment training and procedure training. Switching between the DSS map system and skills training for special equipment, the user gets the opportunity to discuss events and crises. The user can also use the map to plan for military operations. This gives immersion to simulated situations on the ground.
VR allows soldiers to train in environments that are otherwise impossible, because of risks and high costs.
Digital training tools have a lot of benefits. For instance soldiers can get a look into the consequences of military actions. They can see how it can impact civilians, which isn’t possible with traditional training. A group of users can log into CORE and choose the location they are interested to see on a 3D-map. They can then place 3D-objects on the map, draw zones directly onto the map and mark placements of critical infrastructures.
CORE is a thoroughly designed platform for a multitude of user needs. Tailored to the requirements of security and defense agencies like the armed forces, police, and other security agencies, interest in our training solutions continues to grow.
