The US Army has all the pieces for its own metaverse, enough to perfect the training of its units while minimizing risks and costs.
By becoming Meta, Facebook announced the color: the metaverse becomes the main priority. Many today have embarked on this adventure. In the United States, the Pentagon is also working on its own metaverse for his army, the US Army.

Recently, it is the Spaceverse, developed by the US Ari Force, which was talked about, to train and train its troops. Not long ago, Wired reported that the US military had already developed its own metaverse. With artificial intelligence, these environments make it possible to perfect the training of units, with minimum risk taking.
If the metaverse is today much talked about, the elements inherent in this set have existed for quite a long time, whether it is virtual or augmented reality environments, 3D simulations or screens on helmets. For ten years now, virtual reality has been used in the training of pilots and sailors of the US Army, for a significant reduction in costs. With virtual reality, the US Army can prepare its units for battlefields around the world and even help veterans combat post-traumatic stress.

Boeing, for its part, uses augmented reality to train its mechanics before they even intervene on a navy plane. Each mechanic must even have validated this virtual training stage before proceeding with the general maintenance of a device.
Some time ago, the US Army signed a contract worth around 22 million dollars with another American giant, Microsoft, to afford no less than 120,000 HoloLens helmets. Here again, the objective is clear, to integrate mixed reality more and more into unit training.
The American army has a colossal budget, the largest on the planet. It also has very easy access to the very best in terms of modern technologies. It has no need to outsource its metaverse to Meta, Microsoft, it only has to assemble the various elements already in its possession.
