Vrgineers provide next generation virtual and mixed reality pilot training systems for professional and military clients, while VRAI are focused on transforming simulation data into actionable insights by providing a simulation data product called HEAT that enables simulation users to capture, store, analyze and present sim data.
Speaking on the announcement, Niall Campion, VRAI’s Managing Director for Customers & Product said: “We believe data is the untapped resource in simulation training, and that it can transform how training is delivered. In order to harness the power of data & AI in simulation training, the first step is to start capturing data. We are delighted to announce we will be working closer with the team at Vrgineers to help accelerate this transformational technology, they are a great company who share our vision and values.”
Vrgineers CEO Marek Polčák commented on the announcement saying: “Pilot training is becoming much more complex with the sophistication of flight systems and demands on pilot electronic warfare skills. All advanced air forces around the world recognized that and are becoming increasingly interested in advanced data analytics, which supports their pilot training syllabus. We are happy to partner with VRAI to bring such a solution to all our partners.”
Vrgineers & VRAI formalized their collaboration following the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the Czech & Irish Defence & Security Industry Associations in Dublin in October.
Both companies are working with simulation providers in the market such as BAE Systems, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Bell, Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace and the European Defence Fund Consortium FEDERATES led by Rheinmetall, Thales, Leonardo & Indra and others.
The companies believe this partnership marks the beginning of a closer collaboration between both companies to help develop the best simulation data products on the market to solve their customers’ problems.
For more information how simulation data can transform your training, both companies will be exhibiting at I/ITSEC, taking place this week through 1 December. VRAI will be exhibiting at booth #772, and Vrgineers at booth #3018.
