Background

AR has a potential of improving SA for (e.g.) vehicle crew by presenting tactical information directly in the operators’ sight, so that this information can be fully exploited. However, the various NATO nations’ approach to AR seems to be largely uncorrelated, so there is a need for harmonisation/ standardisation.

Objectives

Main objective is to form a basis for the standards that must be in place to ensure a coherent implementation of AR technology into the combat environment.

Topics

The purpose of the RTG is to explore the standards that must be in place to ensure a coherent implementation of AR technology into the combat environment. Focus will be on land platforms and their interaction with mounted and dismounted personnel. - Definitions – Define AR, Situational Awareness (SA), AR for SA. - Use Cases – Define use cases, develop user requirements, write scenarios. - Benefits - Investigate operational benefits and possible drawbacks of implementing AR for SA - Technical Specifications - Determine requirements for relevant AR applications (e.g. navigation accuracy, location accuracy, latency thresholds, update rates, information density) - User Interfaces - Develop/adapt and test AR user interfaces (e.g. functionality, information requirements, presentation and customisation). - Symbology - Develop and test AR symbology (e.g. type/shape, size, transparency, colour and symbol overlap) - Architectures - Examine the relation between a possible AR STANAG and the NGVA STANAG - Experimentation - Test solutions/proposals (e. g. by simulations) involving the user community
