Navy Creates Mobile Combat Simulation Tech for Civilian Use

1 min read

navy-combat-simulationThe U.S. Navy has developed a mobile combat simulation platform that will allow civilian users to experience a Navy SEAL water extraction mission in a virtual environment.

The service branch said Friday it will showcase the technology this month during the Sacramento Navy Week and San Francisco Fleet Week events in California as well as at University of Texas campuses in Brownsville and Edinburg.

“We’ve spent significant time and resources developing this state-of-the-art virtual reality experience to transform and elevate the way people think about the Navy,” said Rear Adm. Doug Beal, deputy commander of the Navy Recruiting Command.

The virtual reality mobile display was integrated into two trucks to allow separate travel during tours in California and Texas where Navy personnel will also be present to guide users.

Capt. Dave Bouve, national director of marketing and advertising at the Navy Recruiting Command, said the events provide the service branch the opportunity to demonstrate how it helps develop advanced equipment.

The branch noted it will provide video briefing to civilians before they use the immersive simulation technology and grade their performance afterwards.
