The Soldier and Mixed Reality (XR): Human Focused

The U.S. Army is investing heavily in mixed reality (XR) technologies to enhance Soldier performance in operations and training, but these cutting-edge capabilities come at the risk of impairing cognition and situational awareness. How do we provide timely, accurate, and relevant information to Soldiers in XR systems in way that amplifies their capabilities rather than distracts and disrupts?

This discussion brings together Army Futures Command researchers and their partners to discuss how they are working to ensure Army-fielded XR systems optimally enhance Soldier performance.
