"Serious Communication for Serious Games"
For decades, military and commercial aviation have been using flight simulators to help teach pilots to fly. Over the years, it has been shown that augmenting real-world training with virtual training results in cheaper, safer, and more effective training. These and other training devices have spread and evolved and now can be found throughout the military being used to train a wide variety of individual skills as well as complicated joint-operation teamwork skills such as convoy operations and Call for Fire.
This talk will explore some of the technological challenges faced when building high-fidelity multiplayer training games for a global dynamic training network. Stringent military requirements include linking disparate training devices together such as serious games, full-fidelity flight simulators, and live-fire ranges so that soldiers may train in real-time with other units around the world in the same virtual world.
