For Immediate Release
Orlando, FL – Orlando-based entertainment, simulation, and GIS software company, GameSim, has been selected to receive Phase I funding through United States Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program. This funding will support the development of a Tactical Training Rehearsal Environment (TTRE) built upon Prepar3D, a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS), visual simulation platform.
The United States Air Force SBIR program is a highly competitive program that encourages small businesses to engage in research and development that has the potential for commercialization. The program enables teams to explore technological potential while providing the incentive to profit from commercial products and services.
The development of this TTRE aims to create an efficient, low-cost, credible, and realistic method to train Air Force personnel. Lockheed Martin will be supporting GameSim with fifth generation aircraft subject matter expertise to provide up-to-date simulations within a flexible, desktop flight simulator. “We are really excited to move forward with this project now that we’ve been selected,” stated GameSim President, Andrew Tosh. “This product has the potential to lower the cost of providing US pilots with unmatched training.”
