MetaVR VRSG in U.S. Navy Combined Arms Virtual Environment (CAVE)

The U.S. Navy is using MetaVR visuals in its Combined Arms Virtual Environment (CAVE) training dome and desktop systems. This spring, MetaVR's business partner Battlespace Simulations (BSI) delivered and installed the latest CAVE system at the Expeditionary Warfare Training Group Pacific (EWTGPAC) in San Diego, CA. The CAVE training system provides an immersive, large field-of-view partial dome display for sea-and land-based individual and team training in supporting arms and close air support.

The CAVE is comprised of student desktop stations in the partial dome, an instructor/operator station (IOS), a role-player station, and a supporting arms station in an adjoining classroom.

Ten VRSG channels are used in the CAVE to provide out-the-window (OTW) views for the partial dome, instructor station, and role player station, supporting arms station, as well as views for UAV camera feed and emulated military equipment (EME) devices. The CAVE also uses MetaVR's geospecific 3D terrain, and model libraries.

The system uses BSI's MACE as the CGF/SAF, BSI's Viper DIS radio for an operationally realistic communications environment, DIScord for AAR and debrief, Open Street Map server, combat radio interface, and several BSI-designed emulated military equipment (EME) devices to include a portable lightweight designator/rangefinder (PLDR), Vector21 binocular laser rangefinder, and an IZLID infrared illuminator.

Earlier in 2017 BSI delivered and installed the CAVE system to the Expeditionary Warfare Training Group Atlantic (EWTGANT) in Virginia Beach, VA, where the CAVE is used to train personnel responsible for coordinating air power, artillery and naval surface fire support.

The first U.S. Navy site to adopt the CAVE system was the Joint Close Air Support (JCAS) branch at the Naval Aviation Warfighting Development Center (NAWDC) at Naval Air Station (NAS) Fallon, NV. NAWDC Joint Close Air Support School uses the CAVE for the simulation training portion of the JTAC qualification course for all Naval Special Warfare (SEAL) JTAC students.

All three CAVE systems replaced legacy Multi-Purpose Supporting Arms Training (MSAT) systems and reuse the rigid shell 5-meter 240 degree FOV domes from those legacy systems.

As part of the simulation technology upgrade at NAS Fallon, MetaVR built and delivered 2 cm per pixel resolution geospecific 3D terrain of two target ranges on the Fallon Range Training Complex (FRTC) used for field training in the JTAC qualification course.

2 cm terrain built with imagery collected by the MetaVR's small UAS of a target range at the Fallon Range Training Complex.

The 2 cm per pixel imagery of the B-17 and B-19 ranges was captured by MetaVR's small UAS, MetaVRC. The UAS was built and flown by Swift Radioplanes in military controlled air space.
