The Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) launched Real Warriors in 2007 to help returning service members, veterans and their loved ones deal with invisible wounds such as traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Which came first-the virtual scenario or the reality? Amazing U.S. Army-funded simulation technologies are blurring that line while at the same time clarifying mission goals and accomplishments.
Lockheed Martin Mission Systems and Sensors, Akron, Ohio, was recently awarded an approximate $184 million contract for the production and delivery of 29 fully-integrated dual sensor persistent threat detection systems (PTDS) with support equipment and site consumables; seven sets of tether-up kits; two sets of theater spares; 36 MX-20 lite sensor spares; and five sets of site spares for the initial five fully-integrated PTDS. The U.S. Army Contracting Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, is the contracting activity.
Designed to educate people about and assist with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), this virtual experience in Second Life offers access to several beneficial simulations.
An app created by the online support community Hope for One aims to provide support for military veterans and their families struggling with the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder.
