VT MAK, a company of VT Systems, today announced the demonstration of an integrated training system that enhances simulation training at booth #1413 during the Interservice / Industry Training Simulation & Education Conference (I/ITSEC) 2018, from November 26-30.

VT MAK’s product integration demonstration will provide attendees the opportunity to experience MAK products as they interact with one another to create a complete simulation solution. VT MAK’s simulation products feature the flexibility to meet requirements of a large variety of training systems, having the ability to cohesively set up and manage the training scenario, simulate all training roles, as well as record and present training results.

“We look forward to showing the new advancements we have made this year, as well as how they reinforce and support MAK’s longtime goals: to create powerful tools that empower our customers, push the latest developments in technology, and provide the best engineering support in the industry,” said Bill Cole , CEO, VT MAK .

VR-Engage, VT MAK’s multi-role virtual simulator, will be playing a central role in the integrated training system. It will be used to play first-person roles of a Driver, Soldier, Pilot, and Sensor Operator. The Sensor Operator is a newest role launched in 2018, with the release of VR-Engage 1.3.

VT MAK will be demonstrating performance advancements, improved scalability, and new capabilities across their product suite. These include significant improvements to VR-Forces’ space-based simulation and tunneling/urban operations, and impressive performance gains for VR-Vantage, rendering smoother and faster visual scenes. VT MAK’s art team has assembled new content such as new vehicles, new human characters, and 3-D models that are available for anyone procedurally generating terrains with MAK Earth. These new assets will be showcased in the context of the MAK Earth California terrain.

Continuing MAK’s history of supporting novel display technologies, the booth will feature an augmented reality environment for visitors to pilot a virtual aircraft, which has an added context of being able to see their hands operate the equipment in the cockpit.

Dan Brockway, VP of Marketing, VT MAK, will be presenting on “Migrating Simulations to Servers, Virtual Machines, and Clouds” to highlight MAK’s development of virtualization strategies and options to fit different customers’ needs at the Innovation Showcase on Wednesday, November 28, 2:30 p.m.
