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.


Floor Projection

  • 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

  • Geospatial data 

  • Terrain models

  • Unit positions

  • Movement orders

  • 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."
