This project will deliver a dismounted virtual/simulated training environment to allow for tactical training up to Company level at each of the five main Canadian Army garrisons.


The Canadian Army requires the ability to provide repetitive, realistic and progressive dismounted soldier training in a garrison environment, in conjunction with the new Land Vehicles Crew Training System. This project is expected to complement the individual marksmanship and dismounted Section skills acquired through the Unit Weapons Training System and will network to the Land Vehicle Crew Training System that will provide the Army's common virtual environment. The dismounted virtual training system will provide a 3D/immersive sensors environment where the soldiers will be able to perform their essential dismounted individual and collective battle tasks, including but not limited to, taking proper firing positions, manoeuvring tactically and assaulting an objective.
