Abstract:

This paper examines recent developments in modeling and simulation products formulated for use in soldier-in-the-loop laboratories utilizing motion base simulators. New, real-time, ground platform mobility and terrain models have been demonstrated that show vehicle mobility interactions in soft soils. Laboratory data collections have been vastly improved via the incorporation of a new product called SimObserverTradeMark The paper also provides example experiment results recently performed to quantify soldier performance in moving vehicle environments. The new products and results help evaluate manned and unmanned ground platform concepts and technologies. Most of these new technology products have been developed by partnerships with the Ground Vehicle Simulation Laboratory located at the Tank-Automotive Research Development Engineering Center TARDEC in Warren, Michigan.
