Metaverse vendor Hadean has completed a pathfinder contract with the British army to demonstrate cloud distributed simulation technology for live, virtual and constructive training.
The British army’s Collective Training and Transformation Program is a 600-million-pound initiative to expand LVC training. Hadean’s contract sought to demonstrate the viability of cloud technology in complex training exercises, said John Cottrell, Hadean's communication director.
“The overarching aims really were to validate the approach that harness the orchestration and distribution capabilities of a cloud platform, which is obviously central to what they're looking to deliver for a future collective training system,” Hadean’s head of defense Nick Brown said on the sidelines of IT2EC, one of Europe's biggest training and simulation conferences.
In March, Hadean brought the system to a training exercise in Kenya, which involved aggregating live, raw data from multiple sources and training systems and moving it into the cloud.
From there, the U.K.-based company managed and orchestrated the data and ran the synchronization of different types of data running at different refresh rates and protocols “into something that represented a common, trusted, single synthetic environment hub in the cloud, and then distribute that single source of truth from the exercise globally,” Brown said.
