ABSTRACT
Virtual reality (VR) is an emerging technology currently most visible when used for entertainment purposes. But there is also much research underway on how to harness this new technology for more productive means. The U.S. Navy is interested in determining how to use VR to teach its sailors and officers to perform their jobs better. At the Naval Research Laboratory, several projects investigate uses of VR for naval applications. These include providing naval architects with more effective tools for designing ships, building 3D battlespace visualization systems for better situational awareness, and developing virtual environments (VEs) for shipboard firefighter mission preparation and training.
