Augmented Reality Tabletop Mission Planner Training Application

SAN FRANCISCO - November 8, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

ForgeFX Simulations is honored to be a long-standing training simulator development partner of renowned Midwest research institute MRIGlobal. ForgeFX collaborated with MRIGlobal to develop Checkpoint, an augmented reality tabletop mission planning prototype application built for the Microsoft HoloLens 2. This application was recently recognized by the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) with a 2021 SPARK award for Multidimensional Understanding. SPARK awards are granted to identify novel approaches for delivering the best solutions for countering weapons of mass destruction (CWMD) and CBRND capabilities to the warfighter in the shortest amount of time.

The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical Biological Radiological and Nuclear Defense provides funding for transformative projects via the SPARK initiative, JPEO-CBRND's idea incubator. The SPARK Innovation Initiative provides "venture capital" for emerging JPEO program areas before they become free-standing funded programs. A development team composed of ForgeFX and MRIGlobal members submitted a proposal for an augmented reality mission planner prototype which was awarded development funding via SPARK.

Checkpoint was developed specifically to accommodate the type of missions that utilize the Nuclear Biological Chemical Reconnaissance Vehicle (NBCRV), a high-speed armored carrier equipped with a Sensor Suite Unit that detects multiple hazardous contaminants. Other equipment models provided by the application are a Stryker RV, an unmanned ground vehicle (UGV), and an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). Mission planning elements such as boundary and movement lines, various personnel formations, equipment, and installations are represented by standard military symbology.
