Virtualware showcases how VIROO is transforming VR training at NATO’s CA2X2 Forum
Bilbao, October 5, 2023.- Virtualware (EPA: MLVIR), the European leader in the virtual reality industry, will participate in the NATO CA2X2 (Computer Assisted Analysis, Exercise, Experimentation) Forum to present how the Spanish Military Health School is improving medical training with virtual and mixed reality.
The forum is organized by the NATO Modeling and Simulation Group (NMSG) Center of Excellence (COE) and is taking place in Rome, Italy, from 3 to 5 October 2023. It is an annual event that brings together military users, industry, and academia to discuss M&S topics such as M&S discipline, exercises, experimentation, wargaming, analysis, standards, and interoperability.
In particular, the commercial sector is developing key technologies and applications that have the potential for cost-effective adaptation for defense exploitation and use in M&S applications such as defense planning, training, operations, and capabilities development.
Recognizing the importance of (low-cost) commercial technologies and addressing their use, NMSG embedded the 18th Workshop on Commercial Technologies and Games for NATO and Nation Use in the Forum, aiming to develop a common understanding of issues and opportunities
