Under the RADLI project, a part of Norwegian ADL Capacity Building Project in the Western Balkans, we planned and developed a virtual simulation of the Balkan Medical Task Force (BMTF) for training purposes.
This initiative leverages and contributes toward the ongoing joint military medical training efforts among Western Balkan countries. The virtual field hospital will serve as a base platform for the nationally assigned personnel to each of the BMTF modules. Cooperation with Canadian ADL, including sharing the same technology and resources, opens an opportunity for broader and interoperable results.
Each of the modules has its own SOP (Standard operating procedure), which could be the subject of separate interactive virtual courses, and creates a path for future independent development of the national ADL teams. In this environment, we are concentrating on exploration and observation in the 3D mode, which allows users to experience the BMTF field hospital as an immersive 3D Virtual World.
The RADLI countries can access the virtual hospital by opening it in a browser from their shared server. In such a case, the mouse and keyboard are used for user control. The full VR experience can be enjoyed with VR headsets and motion sensors set up individually by member countries.
