Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 02, 2013
The DiSTI Corporation, a leading provider of advanced graphical user interface software and customized 3D training solutions, has once again been recognized as a Top Simulation & Training Company by Military Training Technology (MT2) Magazine. This marks DiSTI's seventh consecutive year as an MT2 Top Simulation & Training Company and its third year awarded a “Top Innovator” ribbon.
Of the 300 companies nominated, MT2 chose DiSTI among the finalists for their industry leading role in user interface development for cockpits and instrumentation and 3D virtual maintenance training for the U.S. and international Armed Forces. Additionally, MT2 recognized DiSTI’s new Lumen runtime engine for GL Studio with a “Top Innovator” ribbon.
First previewed at I/ITSEC 2012 and then released in June 2013, the Lumen runtime engine is a completely new runtime solution for GL Studio, developed from the ground up to support modern rendering platforms and multi-processor computer hardware. The development of Lumen represents a multi-million dollar investment to ensure GL Studio continues to meet the requirements for interface development well into the next decade.
Innovation is synonymous with DiSTI’s history. In 2000, DiSTI developed GL Studio, a Commercial-off-the-Shelf (COTS) software tool to design User Interfaces for virtual cockpits. After receiving unanimous praise for the tool, DiSTI saw the need for enhanced technologies in other areas and quickly transitioned their services to include the creation of highly advanced virtual environments. Today DiSTI’s innovation is stronger than ever. DiSTI now holds a process patent for the development of superior 3D Virtual Environments for virtual maintenance trainers. As the leading provider of top quality and fully interactive 3D Virtual Environments, DiSTI’s technology has been selected by countless market leaders in both the commercial and defence sectors. DiSTI’s technology is currently in use for highly sophisticated fighter jets including F-16, F/A 18, and the F-35.
“MT2 focuses the industry’s conversation on the importance of innovative and dynamic technologies for use in military training and we are privileged to be recognized among the prominent organizations in the list of top companies. We are dedicated to providing effective training solutions to all of our customers, which includes the enhancement of mission readiness for our nation’s military,” said DiSTI President Joe Swinski.
MT2’s annual Top Training & Simulation list recognizes the top global companies that have made a remarkable impact on the military training industry across the technology spectrum. Evaluated by MT2’s editorial staff and a panel of independent training and simulation experts, these companies are selected based on several criteria, including total military sales, innovation and program effectiveness.
