Improbable Defence has launched its Synthetic Environment Development Platform, Skyral, as well as a new contract with the Royal Navy.
Skyral is a software development platform engineered to allow organisations across government, industry and academia to collaborate more effectively on the rapid development and ongoing evolution of defence synthetic environments - virtual worlds that are transforming how the UK, the US and their allies plan, train and operate to meet today's dynamic security challenges.
Skyral comprises a broad range of Improbable and partner tools, technologies and services that provide government organisations and industrial partners the capability they need to develop, deploy and operate synthetic solutions faster and more reliably, and to keep up with ever-evolving demand.
The launch of Skyral follows the award of the Maritime Operational Decision Support Tool (OpDST) contract by the Royal Navy, and the prior launch of the Myridian Programme in conjunction with modelling and simulation technology experts from universitieis across the country.
The Maritime OpDST contract is a collaborative project for the Royal Navy, delivered through Improbable's partner, VIMA, to explore and accelerate digital lead planning and decision-making to support and enhance maritime operations in the era of Multi-Domain Integration. The work will focus on mapping out where Synthetic Environments can be used in future to enhance maritime operations and Royal Navy outcomes. Maritime OpDST will provide comprehensive course-of-action analysis, ingesting data feeds to enable commanders and planners to examine alternative plans against varying assumptions, using the synthetic environment powered by Skyral.
