Ashburn, VA (PRWEB) September 08, 2011
Intelligent Decisions (ID), Inc., a premier global IT systems integrator, will demonstrate the first-ever, fully immersive virtual simulation training system for soldiers at the U.S. Army’s 2011 Maneuver Conference at the Iron Works Convention and Trade Center from September 13 to 15 in Columbus, GA. ID will be conducting live demonstrations of the Dismounted Soldier Training System at the conference . The company is spearheading the $57 million development and production of the new system that will enable soldiers, leaders and units to train in a virtual environment to increase the quality of instruction and combat preparedness, while at the same time reducing traditional expenses associated with large-scale instruction facilities. Implementation of the cutting-edge system is being led by the Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).
This year’s conference theme is “21st Century Maneuver Training” and some of the Army’s top leadership will give presentations that provide a basis for opportunities to share lessons learned, tactics, techniques, and procedures from across the operating force, deployed environments, generating force, and training centers.
The Dismounted Soldier Training System provides the rigor and realism needed to execute tough and demanding training in full spectrum operations for current and future soldiers in all five operational themes, including major combat operations, irregular warfare, peace operations, limited intervention and peacetime military engagement, as well as offense, defense, stability and civil support. The training system also allows leaders to plan and execute individual and collective tasks in a challenging virtual environment with squads or teams conducting multiple iterations to achieve training objectives and maximize training time.
“Intelligent Decisions is looking forward to conducting live demonstrations of its new Dismounted Soldier Training System at the 2011 Maneuver Conference, which is attended by some of the U.S. Army’s most respected and influential leadership,” said Harry Martin, president and CEO of Intelligent Decisions. “The ultimate goal of Dismounted Soldier is to ensure that the fully immersive system helps our soldiers maintain the military advantage.”
Dismounted Soldier uses CryENGINE® to provide a fully immersive environment with photorealistic graphics and technology that enable soldiers to virtually interact with their physical environment and to use combat equipment such as weapons, scopes and munitions. Soldiers use natural motions just as they would in a live environment to perform complex motion maneuvers, such as leaning around or under an obstacle, as well as arm and hand signals to communicate with others.
