Army Training Center

Army Training Center


in Huntsville, Alabama


     This work was done for the U.S. Army which wanted to develop classroom training tools for new troops.


Proposed concepts:


Terrain table:


       A terrain table using an array of linear actuators that correspond to the height (altitude) and image scale of the image projected from above.  The computer projects the terrain, and the image (not the table) rotates and zooms for the best view, with the actuators creating an accurate relief map.


Scale Model:

      The trainees enter on the 2nd level.  Projector is on the 3rd level, projecting to a mirror attached to the ceiling above the terrain table.


      This project is shown as an example of past engineering by Steve Hines who currently offers consulting, as well as a variety of licensable technologies.
