A grand challenge

We have set ourselves a challenge to develop a digital human avatar – The Virtual Soldier. It will combine models of cognitive, physical and physiological performance within integrated simulations. These simulations could prepare soldiers for specific scenarios, inform equipment and teaming strategy, and update training modules to mitigate injury.

The workforce of tomorrow

We are building the Defence-centric human performance workforce of the future. Our community of postgraduate students and early career researchers will gain exposure to government and industry bodies, multi-disciplinary co-supervision and real-world defence perspectives.
