BEDFORD, Mass., 19 May 2008.InterSense Inc., a maker of precision motion technology, announced its IS-900 motion-tracking system has been installed in the U.S. Army's Soldier Battle Lab located at Fort Benning, Ga. The Soldier Battle Lab was designed to conduct live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) experiments to gain insights, impacts and recommended changes to Doctrine Training Leadership Organization Material Personnel Facilities (DTLOMPF), based on assessments of emerging technologies and tactical innovations by soldiers and their leaders.
As part of a simulation platform upgrade completed by Advanced Interactive Systems (AIS), InterSense's wireless IS-900 technology will be installed in a series of linked simulators within the Fort Benning facility.
Each simulator is equipped with an immersive display and motion tracking equipment for both the weapon and soldier to ensure realistic situational awareness training, allowing squads to plan missions via the stealth interface, identify how to enter a hostile environment, rehearse actions and perform After Action Reviews (AARs) for unit scoring and performance assessments. Training scenarios can be conducted for either the entire squad or individual soldiers.
