Project Details

Presently, when our troops are training in battlefield scenarios, there are limited options for how to simulate a dynamic battlefield. The options tend to be either physical war games or written scenarios. A far more flexible setup is required. This more flexible system is called CASPIAN, and will provide a mix of real time and simulated data to troops training in the field. The section of the system that this project will focus on is visualization of simulation and real time data on a map, along with additional analytics. By using the HLA implementation Portico and OpenMap, we will add a new federate to the existing system that will allow users to see simulated combatants, along with their actual up-to-date location.
