Kratos Awarded Multi-Million Dollar Applied Research Contract to Develop a Virtual Prototyping Holodeck (VPH) for U.S. Army
Holodecks are staging environments in which participants may engage with different virtual and real environments. Often used for training purposes, these technologies are also valuable for assessment and related applications similar to NVESDs. The knowledge products that will result from this applied research will support NVESD’s future research and capabilities development to enhance soldier lethality.
The award was issued by the U.S. Army Command, Control, Computers, Communications, Cyber, Intelligence Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C5ISR) Center, Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (CERDEC NVESD) via the
