Ares Battlespace Visualization Tool
The Ares battlefield visualization tool provides a 2D or 3D interactive rendering of the area of interest.
Flexible and lightweight visualization approach to improve decision making for coalition warfighters, disaster relief, first responders, and geospatial & survey teams.
Facilitates distributed interactive events in support of collaborative training. Both local and remote collaboration supported.
Connect with Sandtable, Floor projection, tactical planner app, and AR/VR/MR display. Used to plan, rehearse, and re-enact events, presentations, command and control exercises, collaborative training and more.
Display battlespace information into floor surface creating a 2D virtual sand table
Visualize 3D model of floor projection using VR. This view can also display above surface assets
No size restrictions on floor projection
Mixed Reality Display
Use VR to enable individual or team collaboration, both locally and remotely
Use AR to augment sand table or floor projection experience by overlaying info allowing for layers to be shown above physical surface
Mobile Android Device-Tactical Planner
Display battlespace data in a 2D environment right on your android device
The tactical Planner application utilizes android enabled mobile platform
Tactical Planner app can be operated independently for stand alone or remote collaboration
Sand Table Display
Traditional sand table allows for rapid updates and changes to visualize battlespace
Projection reacts to real-time changes in sand with changing visualization of map/topography
Configurable with tactical planner app, AR/VR/MR to enhance visualization features
Data Sets Supported
Battlespace support assets data
By combining all of these data sets into a single interactive visual tool, the users knowledge of the battlefield is significantly enhanced.
"Ares exceeded expectations and performed as intended. Soldiers quickly became comfortable with the technology and its capabilities. Operational orders and collaborative training processes were able to be demonstrated during an Army Experiment in 2019. Commanders indicated that the potential to brief and share plans virtually, while using augmented reality to manipulate the virtual environment demonstrated a marked increase in commander collaboration and reduced the logistical burden of communicating a plan to every leader involved."
