TOOLS: New Tablet Saves Soldiers’ Lives

Engineering & Computer Simulations (ECS) has completed work on a mobile tablet that is designed for training, but ultimately will help save the lives of wounded soldiers’ during combat. The tablet, called Medical Training Command and Control (MTC2), operates a network of devices that simulate a life-like battlefield, complete with injuries within the Army’s Medical Simulation Training Centers (MSTC).

MTC2 analyzes each soldier’s response and delivers back a personalized learning simulation unique to that individual. The technique relies on a psychology and learning approach called Cognitive Learning Theory. Learners select and elaborate on what they perceive, actively shaping their own learning as it takes place.
