Armor and Soldier Performance

The Fundamentals

The Santos environment allows a user to simulate soldier performance while carrying various loads (weapons, munitions, etc.) and while conducting various tasks. 

The VSR team has developed revolutionary technology called "Predictive Dynamics."  It allows for a physics-based system to predict the complete dynamics of a task conducted by a soldier. 

The VSR team now uses Predictive Dynamics to model any task.
