Augmented Reality (AR) is invaluable in terms of training Fires Observers and Tactical Air Controllers. Deployed to actual ranges, in austere conditions, troops can hone their skills in calling for Close Air Support (CAS), artillery, naval gunfire, and Casualty Evacuation (CASEVAC), when air assets, artillery, targets, or munitions are unavailable, or their use is cost-prohibitive. Bypassing legacy training limitations of live fire, the training can be used on non-traditional ranges, such as an actual urban metropolis or a no-fly zone. With multiple iterations, observers exponentially increase proficiency with each evolution. Troops who once trained annually can practice regularly, and troops who are not specialized Fires Observers or Controllers will be able to train for incidental fire support. Finally, AR conserves financial and environmental resources while contributing to a safer, controlled training environment.
