The EDGE Platform
The EDGE Platform, developed in partnership with TRADOC G2, is a government owned prototype designed to provide highly accurate operational virtual environments utilizing the latest Multiplayer Online Gaming (MOG) technologies while leveraging AMSAA approved standards to complement existing Army training methodologies. The visually stunning virtual space is collaborating efforts to explore how commercial game and virtual world technology can be leveraged for training. These scenarios may be used to improve critical thinking, problem solving skills, communication skills for a variety of user communities, as well as Operational Environment (OE) familiarization, and other lessons important to the US Soldier. The target audience for EDGE includes U.S. Army soldiers at all echelons, members of civilian organizations such as emergency medical, police, fire departments, and any other type of civilian first responder. The skills taught in the environment shall be pertinent to all levels of seniority.
