Virtual games with the organization of blockades and chases is one of the forms of staff training for commanders and tactical exercises that enable an interactive environment developed at the Military University of Technology. Soldiers and border guards have simulators and a mobile application with the AR mechanism at their disposal.
The system has been implemented at the Border Guard Training Center in Kętrzyn and at the Cybernetics Department of the Military University of Technology.
The interactive environment consists of two simulation modules. The staff simulator for the training of managers and commanders uses tools supporting work at the position of duty service with a model of the area of north-eastern Poland. The high-resolution (virtual) simulator is to support the exercises of the people managing the activities. It allows to visualize the game episodes — with prepared border areas, road and technical infrastructure, road and railway crossing, and an airport located near the town of Gołdap.
“The mobile application for army or other services offers automatic construction of situational awareness and visualization mechanisms of the current action plan. The application provides the ability to plan and supervise the implemented activities. It automates tactical and topographic orientation through AR View augmented reality mechanisms ”- Col. Mariusz Chmielewski, deputy director of the National Cyberspace Security Center, research and teaching assistant at the Faculty of Cybernetics of the Military University of Technology.
The already implemented solutions are used to train both individual soldiers or service officers, as well as task teams, patrols, squads and platoons. The simulator helps to verify the accuracy and correctness of the decisions made and the knowledge of the rules and procedures of conduct during the implementation of selected high-resolution activities. The system along with the developed methodology for conducting simulation exercises supplement the training program of troops and Border Guard officers and take into account the didactic processes of the improvement courses.
