Military Training

In a training scenario, a haptic cue in the form of a transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation signal is applied as a generated sensory cue to the trainee, The signal is applied to cause the trainee to replicate the movements of an expert performer.

For example, in a simulated flight training of manned or unmanned aerial vehicles, one or more sensory cues are computer controlled to stimulate the sense organs of the trainee effective for stimulating various processing center of the brain to build up rapid muscle memory and pattern recognition.

In addition to the haptic cue, audio and visual sensory cues are applied synchronously to the trainee’s senses. The sensory cues are effective for stimulating the various processing centers of a brain to accelerate the learning.

In a training maneuver, the trainee rapidly learns the correct movement and position of a particular body part (e.g., hand on a joystick) corresponding to the actions of an expert instructor performing the same maneuver.
