The purpose of this task is to provide analytical and technical support services from college students majoring in Computer Science and Computer Engineering with a focus on 3D Modeling to assist with the Battlespace Exploitation of Mixed Reality (BEMR) Lab. This project looks to explore and develop mixed reality solutions for the warfighter using low-cost, commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) gaming and cell phone technology. The goal of this project is to evaluate, integrate and exploit commercial mixed reality (MxR) technology for adaptation to the battlespace to increase and broaden the US warfighter’s asymmetric advantage.
DoD is currently using very few MxR solutions. In the scenarios where MxR is currently employed, the gear is too specialized and extremely expensive. This BEMR project will use inexpensive equipment that can simulate the virtual command center, tactical environment, training scenarios, etc. The purpose of a previous MxR project, Blueshark lab (a fore-runner project to BEMR), was to speculate what will happen in the next 25-50 years in the Navy and Marine Corps. This effort focuses FY19 tasking for ways to immediately exploit equipment and software that can be obtained in the commercial space and scale it to the warfighter, getting it in as many hands as possible.
