UNC gets $1M grant to improve Army simulators

UNC received a $1 million research grant from the U.S. Army on Monday to improve training simulators for urban warfare. The funding will pay for the development of problem-solving mathematical equations called algorithms and software that will make Army simulators more realistic. The changes to the simulators also would mean the program could be run off of one computer compared with the network of computers it currently takes, making it possible for soldiers to carry in backpacks in the field, said the project’s chief researcher Dinesh Manocha.
