High Frequency Global Communication systems
HTC Vive VR - Unity

The High Frequency Global Communication System (HFGCS) application re-creates 5 antenna types. Using this virtual training environment, Airmen can check personal protective equipment (PPE), inspect tower components, and climb the towers according to AFI and OSHA standards. Users can save their progress and must demonstrate their knowledge by answering questions based on randomly placed damage to the equipment and towers. Delivered for HTC Vive.

Design Goals:

  • Random tower and PPE damage generation so that multiple experiences continue challenging users

  • Ability to inspect PPE and towers for damages that align with the random damage generation

  • Train in the proper climbing procedure including 3 points of contact and re clipping tower clips

  • Train in the proper technique for using the tension meter

  • Track players score so that they can follow their learning progress as they play thought the app
