    Navy researchers are adding a new level to their virtual training scenarios, combining virtual and augmented reality systems into a “mixed reality” system that could improve training for a variety of setting and systems while cutting the costs of training.

    Sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, the BEMR Lab (for Battlespace Exploitation of Mixed Reality) in San Diego gives service people a combination of familiar, off-the-shelf technologies, such as Oculus Rift goggles, with practical training that can be applied in real-world scenarios.

    “The BEMR Lab is a constellation of technologies in augmented and virtual reality,” Karl Van Orden, senior technologist at the BEMR Lab, said in a release. “It’s a place where we can explore how to exploit those technologies in our warfighting systems.”
