Abstract:

This paper describes the DARWARS Ambush NK nonkinetic training approach and how virtual technology can be used to train intercultural communication and mental agility in the context of convoy operations and foot patrols. Interaction enhancements required to accommodate its new emphasis on non-kinetic skills such as the ability to introduce instructor injects and real-time in-game assessment are discussed. We also briefly describe the experiences using these non-kinetic training missions and relative challenges of distributing the tool to the diverse DARWARS Ambush user community.
