Embedded Training Enhancement Support Devices for Ground Soldier Systems
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
The purpose of this project is to provide soldiers with the capability to train anywhere at any time using his/her equipment combined with operational combat systems. We proposed to develop a solution that leverages the TRX SentinelTM Personnel Tracking and Monitoring System. The SentinelTM is able to wirelessly track the location and orientation of multiple individuals in an indoor (GPS denied) or outdoor environment. It does not require the training environment to be equipped with any sensors, communications devices, or other infrastructure. The same technology used for tracking people can be used to track position and orientation of targets as well as the individual soldier's weapons. Combining accurate soldier and target tracking with weapon orientation and ballistics models will allow hit probabilities to be computed in training missions. Our small inertial sensors could be added to operational combat systems for training scenarios or installed permanently. The SentinelTM System has a modular design and open architecture to facilitate interoperability with existing systems. Local user interfaces for individual soldiers, which enable sharing of the tracked position information as well as other mission critical data, will be designed and implemented under the proposed effort.
