With trainers moving for various deployments, the USAF faced challenges passing on institutional knowledge for network configuration training. Combined with limited space available for training, this scarcity meant that Airmen-in-training were not able to receive the hands-on training time they needed.
We love to work with doers, dreamers, and thinkers solving complex problems.
The United States Air Force (USAF) faced a significant challenge in maintaining the continuity of institutional knowledge in network configuration training. With frequent deployments leading to trainers’ mobility, a critical gap emerged in passing on vital skills. This issue was compounded by limited physical training spaces, resulting in insufficient hands-on training opportunities for Airmen-in-training. The need for an innovative solution was clear.
To address these challenges, we pioneered a groundbreaking solution: a virtual reality (VR) training simulation specifically designed for USAF network facilities. This state-of-the-art simulation replicates common network configuration procedures, allowing Airmen to immerse themselves in realistic training scenarios. Key features include:
Our development team embarked on a mission to closely mirror the real-world environment of USAF network facilities. By meticulously recreating these settings in a virtual landscape, we ensured an authentic training experience. The simulation was engineered to support multiple interaction modes, offering users a dynamic and versatile training environment. This approach catered to various learning styles, ensuring a comprehensive and effective training experience.
Since its deployment in 2021, the VR training platform has profoundly transformed USAF network configuration training. The immediate impacts observed include:
