Annex F. Special Operations Technology
Army Science and Technology Master Plan (ASTMP 1997)


11. Advanced Learning, Training, and Mission Planning/Rehearsal Technologies

Technologies that should have the potential to provide for fusion of diverse and multi-spectral data, application of artificial intelligence, effective use of constructive, virtual, and live simulations as the basis for future systems for enhanced Mission Planning, Analysis, Rehearsal, and Execution (MPARE); or provide integrated, insertable upgrades to current systems. Technologies should address the potential for networking and include realistic sight, sound, olfactory, and motion sensations. Technologies must have application to as many SOF mission areas, skills, environments, and component-unique requirements as is feasible. Improving rapid learning and retention techniques for foreign language are also of interest.
