Immersive Wisdom to Drive Robot Dogs in 3D for Air Force Base of the Future

Tyndall will be one of the first Air Force bases to implement semi-autonomous robot dogs into their patrolling regiment, integrated with Immersive Wisdom's 3D Virtual Ops Center. These computerized canines demonstrated their abilities Nov. 10 at an event attended by Maj. Gen. Tom Wilcox, Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center commander, and leadership from the 325th Fighter Wing and the Tyndall Program Management Office. This effort builds on Immersive Wisdom's successes at the Air Force's Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS) OnRamps #1 and #2, where these integrated capabilities were first demonstrated.

"We are very excited," said Maj. Jordan Criss, 325th Security Forces Squadron commander. "We are the first unit within the Department of Defense to use this technology for enhanced security patrolling operations."

"We will be able to drive them via (Immersive Wisdom in) a virtual reality headset within our Base Defense Operations Center," said Criss. "We will be able to see exactly what the robot dog is detecting through its mobile camera and sensor platform if desired, we will also be able to issue verbal commands to a person or people through a radio attached to the dogs."

"Immersive Wisdom is proud to deliver this enhanced security capability to the 325th Fighter Wing and all the men and women who live and work on Tyndall Air Force Base," said Brian Behling, Vice President of Government for Immersive Wisdom. "This combination of technologies -- Immersive Wisdom's virtual C2 shepherding Ghost Robotics' semi-autonomous canine units -- will revolutionize base defense as we know it."
