Cambridge, Mass., February 28, 2017 – VT MÄK, (MÄK), a company of Vision Technologies Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that PT. Infiniti Reka Solusi (Infiniti), an information technology solutions provider for private and government sectors, has chosen to use the entire suite of MÄK simulation software as the core of an improved multi-level training system for elite forces.
The complete simulation software system features the VR-Engage - a multi-role virtual simulator that lets users play the role of a first-person human character; a vehicle driver, gunner or commander; or the pilot of an airplane or helicopter, which will improve training results of elite forces. VR-Engage powers role-player stations that train individual soldiers as they interact with the simulation environment provided by VR-Forces.
The Infiniti system is a hybrid of command and staff role player stations. Infiniti is using VR-Vantage IG for a common operational picture, WebLVC Suite for browser-based simulation access, VR-TheWorld Server for a web-based streaming terrain server, and DI-Guy SDK to power realistic human activity.
To link the system together, Infiniti will use the MÄK RTI to connect HLA federates and exchange simulation data. The MÄK Data Logger is used for recording and replay.
“Our project’s goal is to re-engineer the way the military conduct their training starting from the squad level up to command and staff,” said Firman Arifman, CEO at Infiniti. “It will greatly accelerate the decision making process, improve the situational awareness, enhance the coordination and communication, reduce cost; enabling experimental exercises, problem solving, and providing the data and information for reviews and future improvements.”
“MӒK products greatly improve the speed of development and reduce our time in delivering our solution,” said Arifman. “They also enable us to extend the functionalities relatively easily to suit our client requirements.”
Infiniti takes advantage of the customizability of VR-Forces, specifically tailoring it for their clients, including adding and extending specific functionalities. Detailed and thorough documentation, open architecture, and customizability separate MÄK’s software from competitors.
Infiniti embraces MÄK’s unique “engineer-down-the-hall” approach to technical support.
“MÄK’s technical support is very supportive and responsive,” said Arifman. “All of our questions were solved and answered in detail and with examples if necessary. What we love is the actual engineer who knows the matters that answer our query.”
Bolstered by the positive experience with MÄK and their regional representative TME Systems, Infiniti now plans to add Oculus Rift and motion platforms, as well as networked inertia and orientation sensors to its role-player stations for an even more immersive experience.
