QualNet simulator brings unmatched real-world, real-time network communication effects to Presagis’ leading computer-generated forces software

"Presagis is bringing an enhanced level of fidelity to STAGE customers with Qualnet. We are ensuring that simulation developers have access to the most robust and complete simulation toolset on the market," said Eric Simon, Senior Director at Presagis

Presagis™, a world leader in commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) modeling, simulation, and embedded display graphics software, today announced a partnership and reseller agreement with Scalable Network Technologies (SNT). This agreement creates an out-of-the-box solution for highly complex simulations requiring wired and wireless network effects. STAGE users will be able to take advantage of SNT’s cutting-edge communication models in simulated scenarios, adding the rigors and uncertainties of in-field communications like urban environment effects, message delays or drops, signal jamming and sophisticated cyber attacks.

“Presently, simulation systems operate on the assumption of perfect communications and do not take into account network priorities such as spikes in voice communication traffic which could interrupt and delay critical data and video streams – delays which could mean life or death in the battlefield,” said Eric Simon, Senior Director, Product Segment Lead – Simulation, at Presagis. “By partnering with SNT, the industry leader in network communication simulation, Presagis is bringing an enhanced level of fidelity to STAGE customers, and ensuring that simulation developers have access to the most robust and complete simulation toolset on the market. We are thrilled to be at the forefront of this approach to modeling and simulation with such a well-respected partner.”

With the advent of net-centric communications systems, warfighters and other security forces have come to depend on a lifeline of real-time voice, video and data information over ad-hoc mobile networks. That lifeline can be compromised by innumerable invisible threats, including environmental, technical and cyber-based factors. With the integration of QualNet as a “communication network effects” component, STAGE will provide cutting-edge communications realism to simulated scenarios.

Together these industry-leading products will provide an out-of-the-box solution for highly complex simulation scenarios with real-time communications down to the entity level for simulated, distributed exercises involving multi-domain units and complex chains of command.
Visitors to the Presagis stand J110 at ITEC 2010 in London, UK can take advantage of launch pricing on this powerful new solution. For those not attending the show please contact Presagis sales at
