Designing, Developing, Deploying, and Supporting Augmented Reality-Based CBRN Device Training Simulators

We're pleased to announce that ForgeFX Simulations CEO and Co-Founder, Greg Meyers, will be co-presenting a session titled, "Designing, Developing, Deploying, and Supporting Augmented Reality-Based CBRN Device Training Simulators" at AWE USA 2023 at the Santa Clara Convention Center on May 31: https://www.awexr.com/usa-2023/agenda/3541-designing-developing-deploying-and-supporting-augm
The JPEO-CBRND partnered with MRIGlobal and ForgeFX Simulations to produce The CBNRD HoloTrainer, a networked multiuser Microsoft HoloLens 2 augmented reality training simulator for Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear detection device operators. This presentation will cover the entire project lifecycle, including government requirements and the development of holographically projected interactive virtual equipment, culminating in deployment to soldiers. The CBRND HoloTrainer is a groundbreaking spatial computing application that significantly increases the effectiveness of its users.

CBRND HoloTrainer at 2022 Chemical and Biological Defense Science &Technology (CBD S&T) Conference

The CBRND HoloTrainer is an augmented reality device training simulator built for the Microsoft HoloLens 2 by ForgeFX Simulations and MRIGlobal. The CBRND HoloTrainer instructs trainees in the familiarization, operation, and maintenance of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear detection devices by providing holographically-projected interactive 3D virtual versions of the devices for trainees to train on.
Peter Anderson, Principal Engineer at MRIGlobal, demonstrates the CBRND HoloTrainer, a suite of augmented reality device training simulators developed by MRIGlobal and ForgeFX Simulations, at the 2022 Chemical and Biological Defense Science and Technology Conference in San Francisco, California. https://forgefx.com/simulation-projects/augmented-reality-device-training-simulators/

ForgeFX Simulations and MRIGlobal Deliver Augmented Reality Mission Planner

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.
