    Abstract/Description

    In this poster paper, we introduce the DISCOVER project, which
    is developing a CVE for teams to practice managing emergencies
    in offshore and maritime domains. Many factors constrain design
    in such contexts. Here we describe just one of them, the need for a
    particularly convincing sense of reality, and hence the lack of
    scope for �magical� devices to support navigation and awareness.
    We outline the research and design challenges which this entails
