Location Details

To access PIVOTE:

Log on to Second Life, then:


  • Click on Search
  • Click on the Places tab
  • Enter “PIVOTE” in the search box
  • Click on Search
  • Click on the PIVOTE FVWC listing that appears
  • Click on the blue Teleport button bottom left, below the picture
  • You will then be teleported to the PIVOTE FVWC demo on Daden Cays


  • Click on this SLURL (Second Life URL) link to the PIVOTE FVWC demo
  • The web site will open in your browser. Click on the orange “Teleport Now” button the the large call-out graphic
  • Switch back to Second Life
  • You will be offered a Teleport to PIVOTE FVWC. Click on the teleport button
  • You will then be teleported to Daden Cays and the PIVOTE demo

On arrival there is a slideshow that tells you about the PIVOTE system and to show you the management interface. Just press the large centre slide to move forward, or any of the smaller sides to jump to a particular slide.

Once you have done that click on the FVWC info point for a description of how to run the exercise. Then once you are all set press the large red button to start an exercise.

The exercise we have created for FVWC uses a combination of Second Life 3D immersion and PIVOTE exercise management. The scenario is a road-side bomb in Afghanistan that has left a HMMWV wrecked, its cargo strewn across the road, and a soldier injured. Your task is to first use a remote-controlled robot to disable a secondary IED, and then to go in an check the soldier and apply immediate treatment – in this case morphine and a leg splint and then call in the Casevac. How quickly can you do it?
