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."
