Scientists at the Akademia Sztuki Wojennej (ASzWoj) Center for Simulation and Computer War Games are exploring the full potential of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) training for military forces, including for Polish chemical forces training.
One example under development is a virtual chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) training island research and development project by Paweł Maciejewski, PhD. and Małgorzata Gawlik-Kobylińska, PhD.
Their effort aims to provide a VR preparatory training experience, preceding the practical training in the Chemical Training Center in Drawsko-Pomorskie.
“The learning process is taking place in the synchronous and asynchronous mode and is supervised by an instructor who assesses whether the trainees have reached the level required for training in the situation of real contamination,” says Gawlik-Kobylińska. “This shows how the VR and AR tools give a possibility to create safe and controlled learning environment, and painless learning on your own mistakes.”
