Virtual Field Hospital
Under the Regional ADL Initiative (RADLI) project, which is part of the Norwegian ADL Capacity Building Project in the Western Balkans, we planned and developed a virtual simulation of the Balkan Medical Task Force (BMTF) for training purposes.
This initiative leverages and contributes toward the ongoing joint military medical training efforts among Western Balkan countries. The virtual field hospital will serve as a base platform for the nationally assigned personnel to each of the BMTF modules. Cooperation with Canadian ADL, including sharing the same technology and resources, opens an opportunity for broader and interoperable results.
Each of the modules has its own standard operating procedure (SOP), providing potential content for additional interactive eLearning courses and creating a path for future independent development of the national ADL teams. This project concentrates on exploration and observation in the 3D mode, which allows users to experience the BMTF field hospital as an immersive 3D Virtual World.
Virtual trainingPersonnel in the RADLI countries (Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia and Slovenia) can access the virtual field hospital in one of two ways:
- On-screen, by opening the hospital in a browser from the countries’ shared server and using the computer mouse and keyboard for user control.
- In full virtual reality, utilizing VR headsets and motion detectors set up individually by the member countries.
