Saab launches a new tool for military O/C (Observer/Controller) and exercise leaders. The new application, We:Are, is built on Augmented Reality for smart phones and tablets.

With We:Are, O/C will have a 360 degree overview of the battlefield. The system also offers real time visualisation of targets, engagements and movements. During both night and day-exercises the O/C can easily locate the troops in the terrain. With just one click the view changes between the real training environment and an overview image of the exercise area. The training application is based on Google Maps, but it is compatible with any maps. We:Are is fully compatible with all Saabs instrumented training systems.

We:Are makes it possible for the observer to introduce new threats to the exercise, such as minefields and artillery. It also makes it easy for the observer to get an overview of the troops when it comes to how many that are wounded, killed or alive. What kind of injuries soldiers have and how many vehicles that are damaged can also be visualised. The O/C has full situational awareness in real time.

We:Area has been designed with simplicity and smoothness in mind. With the device the exercise leader can focus on what is important, which is to keep track on the individuals and evaluate entire troops in the field. (Photo: DPM)
