The Capitol Hill Modeling and Simulation Expo – the DC area's largest annual exhibition of computer modeling, simulation, and virtual reality, presented by the National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA) in conjunction with the Congressional Modeling and Simulation Caucus – will take place on Capitol Hill on Thursday, July 10, and will feature exhibitors that are using and developing simulation technology in a wide variety of fields.

The Expo will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Rayburn House Office Building, and will feature remarks by Congressman Randy Forbes (R-VA) and other Caucus representatives. Representatives from the exhibiting organizations will be on hand to explain and demonstrate the technology on display.

Today, simulation is a vital part of most technological activity. Everything we manufacture, plan, research, and predict incorporates modeling and simulation at some stage. In many cases, the current power of modeling and simulation has enabled us to explore realms that were closed to us only a few years ago.

The Expo will feature a wide variety of exhibitors, including:

  •     Applied Training
  •     Alelo
  •     Aptima
  •     CAE
  •     Command Post Technologies
  •     Education Management Solutions (EMS)
  •     George Mason University
  •     Integrated Training Solutions
  •     Integrated Technologies Group
  •     Modeling and Simulation Coordination Office
  •     SimIS
  •     Survice Engineering
  •     TRADOC (Training and Doctrine Command)
  •     Virginia Modeling and Simulation Center
  •     VT MAK

Cutting-edge hands-on demonstrations will include:

  •     Flying in a real flight simulator
  •     Taking control of an entire city during a natural disaster
  •     Police small arms training
  •     Performing virtual surgery using state of the art robotics
  •     And many more exciting uses of simulation technology

The Capitol Hill Expo is free and open to the media. For questions and further information, please contact John Williams at jwilliams(at)ndia(dot)org or 703 362 7005, or Debbie Langelier at dlangelier(at)ndia(dot)org.
