Virtualware will take part in I/ITSEC 2022 alongside Microsoft Federal
European virtual reality company Virtualware is collaborating with Microsoft Federal – the U.S. government services arm of Microsoft – to present the state-of-the-art of its military applications. The development will be showcased at Microsoft Federal’s stand (booth #1969) at I/ITSEC 2022, which will take place in Orlando from November 28th to December 2nd.
Collaborating with Microsoft at I/ITSEC, Virtualware will introduce at the world’s most effective modeling, simulation, and training conference its advances in the defense and security sectors. At I/ITSEC 2022, Virtualware will present the virtual reality project developed for the Health School of the Spanish Army (EMISAN), which has been developed using VIROO, its flagship VR enterprise platform
In the past few years, VIROO has implemented its proprietary technology, patented in the United States, to simulate the challenges of training army units in medical protocols for chemical, biological, radiological, and nuclear scenarios, enabling teams to assess and improve performance in various areas such as leadership, teamwork, communication skills, and decision-making proficiency in complex scenarios and extreme stress situations.
The Interservice/ Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) takes place in Florida, and consists of peer-reviewed paper presentations, tutorials, special events, professional workshops, a commercial exhibit hall, a serious games competition, and STEM events.
I/ITSEC is organized by the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA), which promotes international and interdisciplinary cooperation in modeling and simulation (M&S), training, education, analysis, and related disciplines at this annual meeting.
Virtualware has been a member of the National Center for Simulation since 2020, joining hundreds of industry members in the modeling, simulation, and training (MS&T) community.
The VR enterprise platform VIROO is ready for remote and in-person collaborative environments so teams can work smarter, faster, and more in sync than ever before.
It allows clients to quickly adapt advanced VR solutions to suit their specific needs thanks to easier customization, with minimal configuration requirements and no need for expensive installations.
VIROO is currently supporting top industrial organizations and entities worldwide to build rich hybrid ecosystems that accelerate VR adoption across their value chain at scale.
“We are excited to launch this revolutionary training application utilizing our innovation tool VIROO® to the world. We are now in a time that we can efficiently create, manage, and deploy multiuser in person free roam 1:1 scale virtual training scenarios that will open up powerful opportunities to scale across allied partners and build resiliency collaboratively”
