Hologram Technology Is Finding Military Users

Microsoft’s HoloLens hologram headset systems are already being used in the Australian, Ukrainian and Israeli military forces, and now the US military is also finding a use for Microsoft’s most advanced technology.

In recent exercises, forces from the US Marines held a weeklong exercise called Spartan Emerging Technology and Innovation Week. The event featured various training technologies, from quadcopters to augmented reality developed with support from the US Office of Naval Research (ONR) to accelerate the development of decision-making skills.

During the exercise, the soldiers used several ONR-sponsored technologies. These included the Interactive Tactical Decision Game (I-TDG) with an associated augmented-reality headset, the Augmented Immersive Team Trainer (AITT) and a quadcopter-based system for surveying and modeling terrain quickly.

According to mspoweruser.com, I-TDG is a web technology-based application that allows Marines to plan missions and conduct tactical-decision games or simulation-based exercises. It supports maps and multimedia tools and links to ONR’s HoloLens augmented-reality headset.

“Small-unit leaders are tasked with making big mission decisions in an extremely short time window,” said Natalie Steinhauser, a senior research psychologist at Naval Air Warfare Center Training Systems Division in Orlando, Florida, who took part in Spartan Week.

“These decisions not only impact the success or failure of a mission, they affect life and death. With these new technologies, Marines can perform simulated missions in a safe classroom environment, carry out multiple missions and even use I-TDG as an after-action review tool.”
