This project won Best of Show Non-Vendor

This project is the pilot version of advanced capability for the mobile delivery of learning and performance content for combat medic and combat lifesaver roles. Through the use of visual search and pattern-matching technology, a soldier can wave a camera app over cards or onscreen images to rapidly trigger content related to medical triage care procedures for combat or a disaster-recovery training. This content-specific augmented reality will automatically launch and play detailed video and animation segments of emergency procedures on the screen of the mobile device.

Number of Learners: The number of total annual trainings is 500,000. Combat lifesaver: 175,000. Combat medic: more than 30,000

Development Time: This project consisted of three phases, with each phase lasting approximately six months.
