Navy and Marine Corps medical personnel are using an interactive training
tool that simulates the conditions of victims caught in a nuclear, chemical
or biological attack.
The product includes full-motion video scenarios to simulate actual
field situations. The videos were filmed during live simulations of terrorist
attacks conducted last year at Bethesda Naval Hospital.
The exercise was made realistic through the use of professional actors
and makeup artists.
The product was developed by C2 Multimedia Inc., a company that develops
electronic learning products. C2 Multimedia delivered the Differentiation
among Chemical, Biological, and Radiological Casualties Defense Management
Interactive Multimedia Training Product — an interactive set of CD-ROMs — to the Naval School of Health Science, Bethesda, Md., on Aug. 18 for evaluation.
The set consists of four compact discs. It will likely be available
on double-sided digital video disk, but digital video disk players are not
yet widely available at Navy bases, industry sources said.
The product runs on most PCs and uses Moving Picture Experts Group-2
