A video game-like training simulator for Air Force pilots will give them a major advantage in real-life combat campaigns, a former F-22 pilot told Fox News.
The military metaverse is a virtual space where soldiers interact and train with their comrades using artificial intelligence and augmented reality, which overlays digital content on the real world, former U.S. Air Force pilot Dan Robinson said. His company, Red 6, builds augmented reality training tech and can simulate campaign-length combat in digital displays that pilots see while flying their aircraft.
"Think of it as a massive multiplayer video game played over multiple days," Robinson said. "That now allows us to do some campaign-level training, exercising national command authority from tactical operators on the ground or in the air all the way up through the government."
"That's what we're thinking about in terms of the metaverse," he continued. "A persistent, continuous, synchronous environment in which we can go train."
