Replacing 2D maps with interactive 3D-maps when planning military missions can “allow individuals to tailor their planning experience to their own preferences and those of their team members”, ECNMag.com writes, to improve effectiveness, outcomes, and security. While the traditional 2D approach is a one-size-fits-all approach that not adapting to the users’ cognitive abilities, augmented reality-based 3D interactive maps has the potential to adapt to individual users preferences. A Cognitive Science research team at the Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC) in collaboration with Center for Applied Brain and Cognitive Sciences at Tufts University School of Engineering is now studying the impact of using AR-training to optimize performance in real military mission environments. In order to be able to enhance visualization of the environment in concern of the mission which should increase awareness, planning, and decision-making, according to the research team.
