London-based synthetic environment technology company Improbable is partnering with Microsoft’s Defence and Intelligence business to support governments in improving national security through multi-domain synthetic environments for defence and national security.

Partner companies and institutions that use Microsoft Azure will now be able to offer their products through Improbable’s platform, including content such as models, datasets, and AI applications, to enhance innovation in the development of synthetic environment solutions.

“To truly seize the opportunity of synthetic environments, we need to provide an integrated, platform-based approach,” said Joe Robinson, CEO of Improbable’s defence business. “This ensures that all our customers’ synthetic applications are supported by a reusable and evolving ecosystem of partner content - usable across the enterprise as a constant, ‘evergreen’ tool, or deployed to meet specific challenges and service requirements.”

Platform-enabled, cloud-based synthetic environments are a powerful capability for multi-domain integration, faster decision cycles, and improved readiness by enabling organisations to research, plan and train in realistic virtual worlds before taking action in the real world.

These multi-domain virtual worlds, deployed securely using Azure’s cloud and tech stack, enhance customers’ mission-focused capabilities across a wide range of use cases from training, planning and decision support through to force development, experimentation and infrastructure resilience. By taking advantage of a platform approach with supporting services, governments and solution providers can benefit from greater collaboration, reusability and innovation across their enterprise-wide synthetic programmes.
