Army: Research, Development and Engineering Command-Simulation and Training Technology Center (RDECOM-STTC)

see notice

RDECOM-STTC has the mission to develop and advance the state-of-the art in simulation, training, learning, and instrumentation technologies with the overall goal of producing more efficient and effective Army training,test and evaluation systems. Programs funded under this BAA will include exploratory and advanced research related to this mission, as well as, technology demonstrations. Collaboration between universities and industrial companies is encouraged. Projects should take maximum advantage of existing university and industry research and engineering programs and facilities, and those of the Army’s sister services. It is envisioned that project emphasis will be in those areas that: explore and develop novel applications of new simulation, training and instrumentation technologies; explore new methods of implementing instructional principles in training devices; and foster productive and synergistic working relationships through interdisciplinary groups in which instructional specialists, engineers, psychologists and other specialists can work together to optimally develop technologies for equipment to train and assess theArmy current and future forces. The BAA is general in nature and identified current and development areas of research of particular interest to RDECOM-STTC to include the following:
1. Battlefield simulation research, including engagement simulation and instrumentation technology; position, location, and tracking for live training in urban terrain; modeling and simulation for joint interagency, intergovernmental, multinational warfare; predictive analysis research; and synthetic environment data modeling, interchange, access, and reuse development effort
2. Embedded simulation and training for combat systems and vehicles
3. Dismounted soldier training systems
4. Medical modeling and simulation
5. Complex adaptive learning environments
6. Three-Dimensional Holography Modeling and Simulation
7. Advanced Distributed Learning
8. Defense Acquisition University
9. Additional Research Interests
