After years of neglect, the US Navy is launching a new course in learning to make a 3D model of the world.
It is a rare feat, given that only one other such course, called the Interactive Visual Learning course, is open to the public.
It has been in development since last year, but was delayed in its launch as it is focused on the use of mobile phones to create 3D models of the US and European fleets.
The course is designed to be interactive and not just for a few days.
The US has around 5,000 active, reserve and reserve-like forces and about 10,000 reservists, including 3,500 active-duty personnel.
The Navy has spent the past year working with technology companies, including Microsoft, to create the first-ever 3D virtual environment for the service, and has enlisted experts in the field to help with its launch.
The online course has been set up in collaboration with the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (Darpa), the University of Delaware and other partners, including the Navy and the Naval War College.
“This is a tremendous opportunity for our troops, and this is a huge opportunity for the country,” Navy Rear Admiral William M. Hoey, the head of Naval Research, said.
“This is an opportunity for us to make an example out of this and make sure that it is the next generation of our military that we get the training in.
It’s about building upon what we’ve done in the past and the lessons that we’ve learned from those.”
The course has undergone a number of iterations, including one in which it was designed to take 15 minutes, but with the advent of smartphones, the amount of time is reduced to around three minutes.
The courses were originally launched in August but the Navy delayed the launch until February, after which the course was officially launched on February 11.
It was initially planned that the Navy would have about 50 active- and reserve service members take part in the course.
But the service has now decided to open up the course to anyone who wishes to take part, with a $5,000 grant from the Defense Department.
The first person to complete the course will receive a $10,000 bonus.
“We are excited to see our military members use this course to explore 3D modeling in a way that we haven’t seen before,” said Adm.
Jonathan Greenert, the commander of Naval Forces Central Command, which oversees the US Pacific Fleet.
“We know the potential that 3D allows us to explore and use in combat.
We have been working hard to build upon what has already been done.”
The new course is a first for the Navy.
It is one of the first in the world to be offered to the general public.
The US has about 4,400 active and reserve forces and more than 10,500 reserve personnel.
It will take about two weeks to complete, with about 10 active-and-reserve servicemembers able to take the course in one sitting.
“It’s a great opportunity for everyone to get a sense of the real value of this type of training,” said Brigadier General Robert P. Kostelnick, the Navy’s assistant deputy secretary for education and workforce.
“It gives us a chance to do real things.”
The Navy also plans to introduce a similar course for its Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC), which serves as a training environment for military members.
The Army has also launched its own 3D online course, and is also in the process of making a course available to the military’s Reserve Officers Training Corps.
Navy Reserve Officer Training Corps Director General Paul Kestenkamp said the two courses are different in that the former will be open to a limited number of active-force service members, while the latter will be available to all.
The first, called Army 3D Online, will run in phases, with the first two months to be spent working on a training plan.
While the Army has a few courses open to non-active-force personnel, it does not plan to make those available to nonreserve members.
However, the Army also is in talks with a number tech companies to develop a mobile app that will let troops use their phones to explore the 3D environment.
The US Air Force has also been working on an online course for active-forces personnel, and recently signed an agreement with an unnamed technology company to develop an app that would allow users to browse and download 3D digital models of US aircraft and vehicles.
US Navy Rear Adm David S. Zielinski, who is leading the training effort, said the Navy has been working to get this online course to its sailors in a timely manner.
One of the main goals is to get as many sailors on board
