Replace Existing Systems with Newer or Different System


Provide Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) with the experimental and analytical equipment needed to address warfighter, command, system and medical effectiveness S&T challenges within military and security environments.


To replace existing distributed, single-purpose, physiologically-focused research facilities with a new unique simulation capability that permits whole-human effectiveness research in realistic operational environments. The new facilities will permit the recreation of the range of austere environments where CAF members are expected to operate. This will be done through a combination of physical and virtual simulation. Data acquisition systems will enable the study of physiologic, cognitive and performance information to not only understand the human condition but also the subjects’ ability to achieve operational goals.
