Abstract
The development of digital battlefield networks and robust new computing, sensing, and communications technologies promise improved effectiveness on the battlefield. However, significant questions exist regarding the true effectiveness and value of these systems, methods of best employment, and the potential burden of overloading soldiers with information on the battlefield. Defence Research and Development Canada at Toronto (DRDC-T) needs to determine the requirements for a future Urban Team Experimentation (UTE) laboratory that can be used to evaluate the claims and the implications of these information systems for future soldier systems. Through consultation with key scientific and engineering stakeholders at Defence Research and Development Canada’s Toronto laboratory, goals and objectives were reviewed and capability requirements for the UTE were identified. Candidate virtual soldier software systems, and integrated hardware options, were evaluated against these capability requirements. A framework was also discussed for developing infantry scenarios to employ in UTE experimentation. The findings of these investigations are discussed and recommendations are provided.
