ARA Demos New Simulation Technologies at I/ITSEC 2018

Applied Research Associates, Inc. (ARA) demonstrated our latest cutting-edge simulation software at the 2018 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC). Conference-goers previewed ARA’s latest synthetic terrain capabilities and VR and AR technologies at booth 1729:

  • Augmented Reality, Command, Control, Communicate, Coordinate (ARC4): ARC 4 provides heads-up situational awareness to the dismounted warfighter during outdoor on-the-move operations. Rather than looking down at a 2D map or chest-worn computer, the soldier sees geo-registered virtual icons, text, or graphics superimposed on their view of the real world.
  • Soldier Squad Virtual Trainer (S/SVT): Experience the S/SVT multiplayer virtual reality simulation for soldier weapons training. The VR system shows a projectile traveling from launch to impact anywhere in the world, along a SAF-FIRES-generated flight path. Booth visitors can wear our HTC Vive Pro headsets to experience the VR environment firsthand.
  • Real-Time Physics Effects Library (RPEL): TheRPEL software provides realistic weapons effects in real time. RPEL uses verified and validated (V&V) damage methodologies and optimization strategies to calculate physics-based damage assessment for virtual building structures, human participants, and ground vehicles, and will be shown in a federated network system.
  • ARA’s SET-repo technology is a web-based framework for sharing high-fidelity geospatial information.  Sign up online to access and share content immediately or install the platform on your own private server.

I/ITSEC was held November 26 – November 29, 2018 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
