Transcript: Battlefield Technology Augmented reality: The use of computer displays that add virtual information to a person's sensory perceptions, supplementing rather than replacing (as in virtual reality) the world the user sees. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Unmanned aircraft (UA) or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV): Are remotely piloted or self-piloted aircraft that can carry cameras, sensors, communications equipment, or other payloads. Battlefield network: Are large scale network gathering information from soldiers, vehicles, and maps to provide an overall view of the battlefield. Precession guided weapons, Smart bombs: Use a variety of techniques including lasers, infrared cameras, and radar to guide to a missile or bomb to its target with greater accuracy Cyber-warfare: Software that attacks against countries' computer systems controlling defense and other strategic operations Malware software: Designed to infiltrate or damage a computer system without the user's informed consent Denial of Service: An attack that attempts to consume network resources so that the network or its devices cannot respond to legitimate requests. Cyber terrorism: Politically motivated attacks on information systems Military Use of IT Gray, Stuart. Information Technology in a Global Society for the IB. N.p.: n.p., 2011-2012. Print.

Smart Weapons Simulators Military Robots Cyber-Warfare/ Cyber-Terrorism Terms Defined Terms Defined (Cont.) Simulators: A device that duplicates the functions of a real system to allow controlled experiments to be performed Virtual Environment: A synthetic world that may be experienced haptically by operation of an electromechanical device that delivers forces to the hand of the user Virtual reality: A hypothetical three-dimensional visual world created by a computer Virtual reality headset: The Primary output device used by a virtual reality system. Tactile feedback Output: in the form of movement or vibrations Mixed reality Systems: as their name suggests, use a combination of physical training environments and technology. Future Warrior systems, or "Wired soldiers"Use information technology to increase an army's tactical advantage over the enemy by improving communication between individual soldiers, units, and commanders. BigDog: These robots are being developed to transport heavy loads Bomb disposal robots- Remote controlled by soldiers, reduce the dangers soldiers face SWORD robot: High-speed robot equipped with weapons Simulators Battlefield Technology Smart Weapons Robots Cyber-Terrorism and Cyber-Warfare Simulators are mostly used for exposing soldiers to the battle field before they are deployed. Examples of simulators include, but are not limited to: Flying Aircraft Piloting A Ship Virtual Reality Environments (Similar to a computer game) Mixed Reality (Combining both virtual reality aspects as well as physical objects) A huge advantage of simulators is the ability to both test soldiers ability on preforming tasks with expensive equipment or in dangerous areas, as well as the ability to review the recorded mission. The soldiers are able to check their performance and work on their skills. In special cases simulators are used to treat PTSD. Scenes are recreated that allow for the soldiers to immerse themselves in the environment. Bibliography The biggest use of IT in battlefield technology is the future warrior systems. These systems are a revolutionary form of tactical aid. They provide: Soldiers Health Stats Allies' Positions Possible Attack Routes Objectives and Paths to Objectives All this information would appear on a soldiers HUD Currently this is not up to par for what the military requires and is still in prototype stages. An alternative to regular warfare Common targets of cyber attacks Infrastructure Viruses, Trojan horses, DOS, or other malware all part of attacks Once a system is infected, it cold be under foreign surveillance for extended periods of time Smart Weapons in this text mostly revolve around the UAV or predator drone. The UAV or Unmanned Aerial Vehicle is used to monitor the battle field from a birds eye view without putting any lives in harms way. The Predator drone is "loaded for bear" or equipped to deal with any violent situations. Predator missiles are very common in taking out buildings or specified targets. UAVs are very expensive, most cost $10 million + UAVs are also used to patrol the US-Mexico border The less talked about smart weapon are the precision guided missiles. Used by lazing a target and then calling in an airstrike to that GPS location.
Transcript: In this 2nd Grade unit, the students will learn all about camouflage. For two weeks, they will engage in fun activities that pertain to all different kinds of animals who learn to blend into their environment. They will learn new vocabulary pertaining to the topic. They will also have the chance to be creative based on what they learned throughout the unit. Objectives 1 The students will watch the introductory video (Leopard stealth) and through group discussion, find 3 key points about the leopard in the video to type a short Power Point summary. 2 As a class, students will watch a portion of “Kings of Camouflage” and discuss what they observed the cuttlefish do, taking notes of all the key points the teacher mentions (which will also be displayed on the whiteboard). The students will then get into pairs to use Microsoft Word to create a Venn Diagram that compare and contrast the animals listing at least four differences and one similarity between the animals in regards to their environment and food source. 3 After the teacher has read 3-D Close Up: Animal Camouflage, the students will search online in groups for different kinds of camouflaged animals through child-friendly sites. The students will individually create “Inspiration” maps based on 2 different camouflage animals they choose and include 2 descriptions of each (one of their habitat and one of how they camouflage). 4 Individually, the students will create a camouflaged animal of their own on Kidpix using the lesson vocabulary to 1) describe what kind of animal it is, 2) how it camouflages, and 3) what kind of environment it lives in. 5 Individually, students will create a habitat that corresponds to the animals that they had previously created with KidPix and should include 2 things- food source, shelter/hiding place.

Great with students, workers, family, etc. For example: With games like Jeopardy and Family Feud, players can pick practically any answers. The person who is running the game will have to have all of the answers in order to determine if players are correct or not. However, with a game like Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the players only have a choice between answers, A, B, C, or D. Therefore, when the player decides their answer, the person running the game clicks it, and the game will tell them whether they are right or wrong.

Transcript: Camouflage SSSSS&M SHAPE SHADOW SILHOUETTE SPACING SHINE MOVEMENT SHAPE: MILITARY EQUIPMENT AND THE HUMAN BODY ARE FAMILIAR OUTLINES TO ALL SOLDIERS. THEY ARE INSTANTLY RECOGNISED wHEN IN CONTRAST WITH THE SURROUNDINGS. AN OBJECT CAN CAST A SHADOW IN SUN OR MOONLIGHT AND SHADOWS ARE EASILY RECOGNISED. SHADOWS CAN BE USED TO CONCEAL OBJECTS BUT IT MUST BE REMEBERED THAT THEY MOVE AS THE SUN OR MOON MOVES. WHAT IS CONCEALED BY MORNING MAY BE EXPOSED IN THE AFTERNOON. ANY OBJECT THAT IS SILHOUETTED AGAINST A CONTRASTING BACKGROUND IS CONSPICUOUS. SMOOTH, FLAT BACKGROUND SUCH AS WATER, SNOW, FEILD AND WORST OF ALL SKY, MUST BE AVOIDED. NATURAL OBJECTS ARE RARELY IF EVER REGULARLY SPACED. REGULAR SPACING DRAWS ATTENTION TO THE FACT THAT SOMETHING OTHER THAN A NATURAL OBJECT IS PRESENT. TO GIVE OFF or GLOW WITH LIGHT. TO BE BRIGHT WITH REFLECTED LIGHT. TO APPEAR BRIGHTLY OR STRONGLY; GLARE. SUDDEN MOVEMENT ATTRACTS THE EYE. SLOW DELIBERATE MOVEMENT IS MUCH LESS LIKELY TO BE DETECTED.
