Saab launches a new tool for military O/C (Observer/Controller) and exercise leaders. The new application, We:Are, is built on Augmented Reality for smart phones and tablets, and will be showcased to the training market for the first time at this year´s I/ITSEC in Orlando, Florida.
With We:Are, Observers/Controllers will have a 360 degree overview of the battlefield. The system also offers real time visualisation of targets, engagements and movements. During both night and day-exercises the O/C can easily locate the troops in the terrain. With just one click the view changes between the real training environment and an overview image of the exercise area. The training application is based on Google Maps, but it is compatible with any maps. We:Are is fully compatible with all Saabs instrumented training systems.
“I/ITSEC is a great place for us to introduce this new tool to the training market. We:Area has been designed with simplicity and smoothness in mind. With the device the exercise leader can focus on what is important, which is to keep track on the individuals and evaluate entire troops in the field”, says Åsa Thegström, Head of Business Training & Simulation at Saabs Business Area Dynamics.
We:Are makes it possible for the observer to introduce new threats to the exercise, such as minefields and artillery. It also makes it easy for the observer to get an overview of the troops when it comes to how many that are wounded, killed or alive.
What kind of injuries soldiers have and how many vehicles that are damaged can also be visualised. The O/C has full situational awareness in real time.
