For the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF), training is an essential function to ensure that it remains a strong and respected force in the region. It has often relied on technology in training to overcome manpower and land constraints. The Multi-Mission Range Complex (MMRC) is one such innovation conceptualised to provide training realism while overcoming these constraints. With its emphasis on technology, the SAF is at the forefront of simulation training. Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that can benefit the training community by improving not only the competencies of already skilled personnel, but also that of trainees who may lack knowledge and experience. Popularised by Pokémon GO, it is one of the technologies that have been identified to have a significant impact in 2017. AR enhances what we see, hear, feel and smell by adding graphics, sounds, haptic feedback and smell to the natural world as it exists. With the technological barriers of AR decreasing, it has become an attractive technology that the military can consider in training and operations. This essay explores the possibilities of adopting AR for military training. It will first delve into AR and then look into the advantages offered in the area of training. It will next explore AR uses for the military before focusing on how we can make AR a key enabler for Army maintenance training by considering ‘Man’, ‘Methods’ and ‘Material’.
