VIRTUAL REALITY SIMULATION TECHNOLOGY FOR MILITARY AND INDUSTRY SKILL IMPROVEMENT AND TRAINING PROGRAMS / MAREK KOŹLAK, ALEKSANDER NAWRAT, ANTONI KURZEJA
Abstract. This paper presents how the Virtual Reality (VR) technology and Computer Graphics (CG) is used nowadays by industry to reduce production costs, minimize learning curve and eliminate hazardous situations. Few examples of procedural training and VR simulators are being presented, as well as the use of CG for military training and troops support.
DISTRIBUTED CAX AS A MODERN FORM OF COMMAND AND STAFF TRAINING / PAWEŁ BORYN, MARIUSZ KOZIOŁ
Abstract. The JTLS (Joint Theatre Level Simulation) simulation system, used for 10 years in the War Games and Simulation Centre, National Defence University, Warsaw, enables conducting computer-assisted command post exercises. The article describes operational possibilities, terrain model and user interface in the JTLS system. The authors also describe the classification of computer simulation and attempt to define the distributed computer assisted exercise. Organisational aspects, technical problems and issues connected with the interoperability of different simulation systems and C4I systems are dealt with in the context of conducting CAX.
METHODOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF AIR FORCE PARTICIPATION IN COMPUTER-ASSISTED EXERCISES USING JOINT THEATRE LEVEL SIMULATION / MARIAN MICHALEC
Abstract. The article presents the general features of the JTLS interactive simulation system, and more detailed features in the area of simulating air force operations in computer assisted exercises. The main phases of preparing, conducting and discussing computer assisted exercise are described. Against this background the author discusses selected methodical aspects of using JTLS in the simulation of air force operations.
USE OF THE JTLS SIMULATION SYSTEM AND JEMM APPLICATIONS IN CONDUCTING EXERCISES WITH ARTILLERY UNIT COMMANDS / MARCIN PIETRZAK
Abstract. The article answers the question of the possibilities of preparing and conducting computer assisted exercises with artillery unit command. The author discusses the capabilities of the JTLS simulation system and of JEMM applications used by CSiKGW in the context of their potential to create exercises designed for an artillery unit command. The article describes the basic tasks of the artillery and the method to simulate them in a virtual reality. The author presents the tangible benefits of using simulation in the training of troops, especially when it comes to reliable assessment of exercises conducted with the use of both tools. Such an evaluation using system analysis presented in the article constitutes an added value of the exercise and describes the decisions made by the training audience in the most objective manner. And last but not least, the article discusses the costs of exercises showing in this context the superiority of computer-assisted exercises over conventional map exercises.
EXPERIMENTAL DETERMINATION OF PERCEPTIBLE ACCELERATION OF A DRIVING SIMULATOR FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES / GABRIEL KOST, ANDRZEJ DYMAREK, TOMASZ DZITKOWSKI
Abstract. This paper presents the results of experimental determination of actual accelerations in a car simulator in typical traffic situations. Key physical quantities were measured in characteristic points of the simulator during acceleration, braking, turning, changing lanes, etc.
