LONDON May 22, 2012
A world-first multi-force Joint Recognition Training app for mobile devices was unveiled today at ITEC by Caspian Learning. The app, unlike anything else currently available, was unveiled by the technology company as part of their VBSWorlds training showcase.
The Joint Recognition Training prototype is a dynamic training application that is unlike anything else available. Rather than using static photographic images of vehicles to help trainees identify them, the new application uses high fidelity 3D models that allow users to interact with vehicles within an immersive 3D environment.
The ultimate learning objective of the application is to help trainees make snapshot decisions about a vehicle’s identity and possible intentions in tough conditions where visibility is limited – on a handheld mobile device.
In the full version of the application, trainees will be able to participate in two distinct play modes.
- The first mode is a review mode or ‘freestyle’ mode that allows the user to select a vehicle and examine it in a 3D world and interact with it in a number of ways.
- The second mode is a training mode where users will be asked to take part in a time-restricted test that forces them to make snapshot decisions in tough conditions.
In training mode, performance of the trainee is tracked for after-action reviews and feedback.
The app was designed as part of Caspian Learning’s VBSWorlds ITEC showcase, where the company are demonstrating a number of virtual training scenarios created with their 3D authoring software, VBSWorlds.
VBSWorlds is currently being used by NATO to create virtual training scenarios for Maritime Interdiction Operations and is available to defence organisations around the world on a licence basis.
The Joint Recognition Training App concept will be on show at Caspian Learning’s exhibition stand at ITEC at booth F-110.
