Marines conduct first live-fire augmented reality training

By Mark Pomerleau, 8 Sep 2015, Defense Systems “Marines recently tested augmented reality technology in a live-fire training exercise for the first time. Developed by the Office of Naval Research, the Augmented Immersive Team Trainer (AITT) system consists of a laptop, software and battery pack, and a helmet-mounted display. It supports live, virtual and cutting-edge training scenarios.” For full article, …

Marine study: Simulations translate to live-fire performance

by Kevin McCaney, Defense Systems, March 24, 2015 (note: LtCol Walter Yates is a MOVES graduate) “Simulation systems used for training have a lot of supporters among military leaders, but they still have some doubters when it comes to training on tactical vehicles and weapons. After all, how could a computer-generated virtual scenario compare to actually working with real equipment …
