Abstract:

An important capability that many modern 3D interactive training simulations lack is an After Action Review System AARS that helps both the trainer and trainee to conduct an After Action Review AAR. Although AAR is not a new idea in the 3D simulation field, it is not widely used in training simulations. In real life training, AAR has been proven as one of the most important phases of the training procedure, sometimes taking the form of debriefing, or in other cases, by conducting a deeper analysis and discussion of the facts. In order to conduct an AAR, a well-designed system AARS must exist to keep track of the conditions and the actions during an exercise, so they can be available for review later. This thesis translates the idea of AAR for real training situations to the 3D interactive simulation domain and also develops an After Action Review System AARS using XML technology for capture, analysis, and interactive playback of an entire simulation training session. Users can change the point of view to any desired position and direction, something that is impossible in video streaming playbacks.
