Game Environment Simulation Trainer for Ambush Situations
Based on the DARWARS architecture, DARWARS Ambush! is a multi-player game environment simulation trainer (team vs. team; team vs. AI) that teaches troops how to anticipate and react to ambushes & IEDs, transfer situation awareness during troop rotations, and recognize and adapt rapidly to constantly changing insurgent tactics. The system focuses on troop level experiences and convoy ambushes as well as dismounted forces, allows for field authoring so that new experiences can be added to the system easily, and provides support for capturing, sharing, and discussing incidents. The goal of DARWARS Ambush! is nothing short of saving soldiers' lives in Iraq and Afghanistan by capturing, analyzing, and disseminating lessons learned experiences.
