The Virtual Soldier Research Program (VSR) conducts basic and applied research and development in the field of human modeling and simulation. Our research is aimed at creating interactive, intelligent, and predictive human models that operate in virtual, physics-based environments. The product from this research is called Santos, a human simulator that is widely used by the US military and industry partners. It is the only physics-based human simulator.
