USC Institute for Creative Technologies gets new building to amp up its military VR work
Still, that shouldn't imply ITC doesn't dabble in good ole' fashion combat simulation work. In fact, it's currently running a training exercise on three military bases designed to prepare soldiers for an insurgent ambush within a highly-realistic virtual town reconstructed from satellite imagery.

To judge for yourself, check out the video overview on the next page.
