Past News Releases


Yellowjacket Software today announced the first public release of their Yellowjacket Sting Simulation Editor, a unique graphical editing package that makes it easy to simulate the movement of objects and information.

“Sting was initially conceived as a tool to create training simulations for the telecom industry,” said Kevin Colton, founder of Yellowjacket, “but over time it has evolved into an editing platform that can be used for a wide variety of industries. We think we can provide a valuable product to individuals in sports, communications, education, health care, transportation, the sciences and more.”

Sting allows users to position objects on an editing canvas, draw paths for those objects, and then trigger events as a simulation unfolds. After the simulation is created it can be distributed and run using a simple player application. The editor includes dozens of sophisticated features such as a timeline view, traffic generation, message visualization and video file creation. Sting is packaged into several products with features customized for different industries. A bundle product and a free version are also available, along with a 30-day trial for all features. Most products are priced under $100.

“We’re focusing on the sports coaching drills market with our Sting Playmaker product to start,” said Colton. “It’s an industry with a proven market for graphical editing tools, and we think we have a top-tier product since coaches can create animated simulations rather than static drawings. We’ll also be working to develop our other target markets in the coming months.”
