The major thrust of our activities focuses on a domain analysis for training of ground troops in an outdoor urban environment and on user studies with virtual training simulations. The user studies planned in this project include two different activities: (1) design and testing of novel training methodologies and pedagogies in support of learning and training with simulations and game-based systems, and (2) validation of our solutions in the domain of artificial intelligence (simulated human performance). Both types of studies focus on training of ground troops for the urban warfare operations.
