Head mounted augmented reality training simulation

Forces personnel can now benefit from improved simulation system for combat training using head mounted augmented reality training system from Sarnoff
Sarnoff has been selected to demonstrate the first individually worn augmented reality training system for the Future Immersive Training Environment (FITE) Joint Capability Technology Demonstration (JCTD) program.

Sarnoff’s head-mounted visualization training system will be capable of combining real world views with virtual computer generated images and avatars. For instance, during training exercises, joint forces personnel will be able to operate freely within a realistic training environment, using their own weapon, while interacting with computer-generated avatars moving through the same environment. To the soldier, the avatar will look like a normal feature of the environment and will respond realistically to the soldier’s actions by conversing, taking evasive action, or returning fire, which the Marine will feel with haptic feedback if hit.

“For decades, Sarnoff has been a leader in real-time video processing, introducing augmented reality innovations which led to the virtual first down marker seen by millions of football fans during live broadcasts of their favorite team,” said Dr Rakesh Kumar, Technical Director, Vision and Robotics Laboratory at Sarnoff. “This deep experience allows Sarnoff to deliver augmented reality training that provides soldiers with the best of both worlds: real-life, immersive interactions along with the ability to accurately recreate and record the on-the-ground conditions they will face when deployed. The combined system will ultimately help our soldiers greatly improve their reaction times and decision-making skills during combat.”

Additionally, the augmented reality training system will enable the soldier to record and replay training sessions directly from the perspective of the wearer, offering ultra realistic after-action reports created with the same first-person view a soldier experienced during the training exercise. The system will rely on Sarnoff’s real time video navigation and stereo image processing technology along with COTS cameras for overall cost reduction. The system will also be ideal for police, first responder, and firefighter training as well as commercial applications such as immersive video games.
