Synthetic Environment Blends Real and Digital Worlds
4GD will exhibit its flagship SmartFacility solution on the Brigantes stand in the DSEI Security Zone at ExCeL London, 14-17 September.
The solution takes the form of a mini-Close Quarters Battle (CQB) lane, featuring a SimStriker smart target dummy, which records hits from non-ballistic ammunition. It will also feature a sample of ACIES IntegratedRealities, a synthetic environment that seamlessly brings together the physical and digital worlds. This will reflect actions taken in the physical CQB lane into a digital environment, so the SimStriker also appears as the avatar of an enemy combatant to anyone with a portal to the virtual world. Therefore, when the target is engaged in the real world and drops, the avatar will also be neutralised, and anyone viewing its virtual representation will see this.
ACIES was launched as a revolutionary new product in January alongside ECFECTUS, a tactical performance data collection system. Together, the two solutions aim to extend the range of capabilities that SmartFacility can offer, and drive further performance improvements in close combat training. The 4GD team will be on hand to discuss how a fully-enabled SmartFacility installation can provide seamless, agile and customised training for a wide range of disciplines applicable to modern battlespaces.
