ASTi is excited to announce the latest evolution of our simulation capabilities: human-wearable and vehicle-mounted solutions deployable to the tactical edge. Recent advances in networking and communications facilitate access to data beyond the boundaries of the IT enterprise. Wireless meshnet, 5G, and secure-cloud services expand ubiquitous, high-speed connectivity to even the most remote military test and training locations.
The latest advancements in rugged edge computing modules and batteries deliver vast computing power in a compact, rugged footprint with less size, weight, and power (SWaP). As a result, soldiers can experience mixed-reality (MR) training even under the most extreme conditions. MR devices and the Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) goggles provide a sophisticated feature list, such as built-in head-tracking, spatial speaker arrays, and smart microphones.
The challenge requirements are listed in blue; ASTi's applicable components are
ASTi generates and delivers physics-based, directional sounds right to soldier’s earpieces. These sounds track constructive simulation entities, overlaying immersive ground vehicles, aircraft, weapons fire, and detonation effects. This solution can support the Army Synthetic Training Environment (STE) Live initiative.
ASTi’s Voisus product blends voice comms with live-synthetic training domains and connects them to any live, virtual, constructive (LVC) source. Create tactical radio-intercom-phone talk groups for instructors, range controllers/observers, command-center staff, and first responders. Extend tactical comms beyond the line of sight (LOS) via Radio over IP (RoIP), distribute networked radios to remote desktops and mobile devices, and control downrange radios from a browser.
ASTi uses vanguard technologies like advanced speech recognition (ASR), text-to-speech (TTS), and artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) to automate interactive, constructive entities. Reduce the need for human role-players, and train any time, anywhere.
Speed up after-action review (AAR) production, accident, and incident investigation with ASTi’s capture and replay feature. Digitally capture, process, filter, and replay radio nets, intersquad talk, environmental sounds, phone calls, and intercom channels. Leverage ASR to automatically search for voice recordings and expedite AAR.
LVC voice communications for computers, tablet PCs, and serious games
Earshot simulates an immersive, 3D soundscape, accurately modeling the battlefield sound environment as well as acoustic, through-the-air voice communications. Earshot works out of the box: all you need is a network connection and minimal configuration to map sounds to entities.
Once enabled, Earshot detects the virtual world location of simulation entity types (i.e., ground vehicles, rotary and fixed wing aircraft, weapons fire, detonations) and generates associated sounds that automatically track the moving locations of the entities. Earshot also realistically models the propagation of players’ voices traveling through virtual air.
