Summer STEM Projects
Virtual Reality JTAC Trainer
JTACs are devices used to implement laser-guided missiles. Previously, large domes with many displays simulated the environment.
Build a cheaper, off-the-shelf, portable replaceable proof-of-concept.
A virtual reality experience walked JTAC staff through an exercise.
A successful proof-of-concept was built. JTAC must make and refine the scenarios before deploying to other bases.
Simulate different levels of drone automation to see how autonomous drones can become.
Create an experience for one user to fly four pre-programmed drones.
Created a prototype using unreal engine 4, Blender, and Quixel products.
A level was built letting a user control four drones in one unique map.
Multiplayer VR Maintenance
The military wants to decrease the cost of training experiences for low-risk routines.
Create a simulation such that multiple users can interact in a shared environment and perform a maintenance routine.
Developed a training simulation using the Oculus Rift S and UE4.
The project concluded with maintenance simulations for arbitrary objects. In the future, new objects and routines can be added to the simulation.
Multi-Domain Card Game
An Air Force Captain from AFIT uses a card game to help train soldiers on the different domains of war.
GRILL® students and staff were tasked to create a deck builder for the online game.
A deck builder with an intuitive GUI was created by students and staff so players could create new cards and decks with more strategies and functionality.
