FUTURE OF VIRTUAL WORLDS: DESIGNING VIRTUAL WORLDS FOR MILITARY SCENARIO PLANNING AND TRAINING

547
-1

Published on

With the continual rise of virtual words environments such as OpenSimulator (OpenSim) and Second Life (SL) have the ability to be used for positive or negative gains in military warfare in the areas of training (Dawson, 2011). For example, a terrorist could create a virtual representation of a building by using publicly available drafting plans. This virtual representation would serve as scenario based training for terrorists. Additionally this would allow for terrorists of different cells or groups to communicate freely. Policing the virtual worlds may become a necessity to maintain national security. The U.S. Army is currently implementing a program known as Military Open Simulator Enterprise Strategy (MOSES). MOSES runs on OpenSim and is moving towards a Common Access Card (CAC) enabled environment for secure and encrypted communications.
