Primordial Lands North Carolina A&T State University Contract

Primordial, the leader in vision system software for soldiers, recently secured a research & development contract with North Carolina A&T State University to assess the impact of various cueing methodologies used to identify tactically significant features in a soldier's head-mounted display.

"I am excited about using Primordial's testing framework as a platform for our battlefield augmented reality research," said Woodrow Winchester, III, Ph.D. Candidate, Human Machine Systems Engineering, North Carolina A&T State University. "Our study will help to quantify the impact of Primordial's software on soldiers executing combat missions."

North Carolina A&T State University is conducting the study to determine how and when soldiers react to changes in a battlefield environment. The researchers will use Primordial's software to display battlefield imagery overlaid using a variety of approaches to cueing critical information. The test group will be varied in background and physical attributes, and will be participating in about an hour-long study. They will be expected to detect changes in the display that are pertinent to the evolving battle.

Primordial is a vision system for soldiers connected via the digital battlefield. Primordial enables soldiers to differentiate friend from foe, find targets, and request fire support. According to Randy L. Milbert, president of Primordial, "It is an honor to support North Carolina A&T State University's pioneering research. Their study will help to address concerns about information overload by ensuring that we present only that information which is essential to networked soldiers engaged in combat."
