UK Armed Forces | Virtual Reality

UK Armed forces are currently using DASA’s funded Simcentric’s SAF-TAC, a virtual reality-based training system for military personnel to hone their combat and situational-awareness skills on the battlefield.

The VR training allows soldiers to step inside a highly immersive virtual world and practice shooting at various targets and engage in simulated combat scenarios, all while receiving real-time feedback on their performance. The simulation consists of a variety of environments including urban, rural, and woodland settings.

The VR solution aims to enhance soldiers’ shooting and tactical skills. Apart from individual skills development, the soldiers learn how to be a good team player and communicator.
