Additionally, this research developed a new 3D after-action review capability using a position tracking Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) system. It is being evaluated for a number of purposes including review capability for combat medics participating in medical training tactical field exercises. The system will track personnel using the LiDAR system and will then have the capability to replay the exercise in 3Dallowing for additional detail during exercise review. For this project, IVIR partnered with the University of Minnesota Medical School, Zebra Imaging, and Bolt, Beranek and Newman (BBN).
SAPS Research Concept
The U.S. Army Research Development Engineering Command (RDECOM) contracted IVIR Inc. to conduct an independent test and evaluation to provide complete documentation to move the SAPS research concept into the acquisition, production, fielding, and life cycle support arena. The project consisted of establishing the Critical Operational Issues and Criteria (COIC) and Measures of Performance (MOP) and Effectiveness (MOE) for the SAPS system, and creating a Test and Evaluation Master Plan (TEMP). The project culminated with verifying the research effort, conducting independent validation testing, and evaluating the SAPS system at selected joint operational medical training sites, as well as, fusing and analyzing the collected data. The processed data was used to fully document the user requirements, to verify the SAPS delivery to the government, to validate the SAPS concept as a viable instructional tool, and to prepare accreditation packages for the appropriate agencies for specific utilization approval.
