Imagine a Time ...

When Soldiers Use Mind Waves to Communicate With Man and Machine U.S. Army research on wearable technologies could lead to a future in which soldiers wear helmets with embedded thought sensors to communicate with one another and autonomous systems. For now, scientists have developed a prototype architecture that will allow soldiers equipped with wearable technologies to communicate with each other and with robotic systems using hand gestures—even if team members are not within sight. The technologies will increase situational awareness, which ultimately improves mission effectiveness. The scientists cite a hypothetical situation in which a dismounted squad moves through an area, perhaps thro

Finnish Defence Forces Purchase Enterprise License for VBS3

The Finnish Defence Forces (FDF) have purchased from Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) an enterprise license of Virtual Battlespace 3 (VBS3). VBS3 provides an immersive virtual environment that helps soldiers train on tactics, rehearse for missions, and practice standard operating procedures. With its After-Action Review tool, the software is designed to help soldiers learn to think, make decisions and improve communications before heading to the field for live exercises. VBS3 is used for tactical training and mission rehearsal on desktop computers as well as part-task trainers and full mission simulators. The Finnish military have used VBS in various training capacities since 2007. VB

Robots Invade the Battlefield

Lighter, simpler, more versatile creations are coming to a theater of war near you. Today’s ruggedized robots will go where man has gone before—and where man should no longer have to go. While U.S. defense officials are not ready to fully relinquish warfighting duties to robots, they are on the fast track to acquiring technologies and platforms anticipated to shake up military operations. The Army’s Strategy for Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS) supports robots taking over the three D’s of warfare: dull, dirty and dangerous. The service’s overarching Army Operating Concept lists RAS as an enduring capability to reduce risks to soldiers, increase efficiencies and provide U.S. and coalition
