Queen’s computing researchers are working with Thales Canada, Defence & Security, a tier 1 DND supplier and premier electronic systems integrator,
to investigate new ways to train army officers using simulated manoeuvres on digital, touch-sensitive tables. Using prototype computing devices and
real-world training facilities, the team is finding faster, more effective ways to simulate complex decision-driven tasks faced by Canadian Forces personnel
in the field.
