ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 25, 2014—GameSim Inc., provider of software and services to the gaming, simulation, and geographic information systems (GIS) industries, announced today its Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
In 2013, GameSim introduced an innovative software product, Conform (gamesim.com/conform), which generates a 3D representation of an environment from GIS data (vectors, elevation, and imagery) in near real-time. The integrated scene can be viewed in both 2D and 3D, or exported, into other run-time formats.
GameSim was interested in furthering their process of fusing together a single 3D environment by supporting additional data products (e.g., LiDAR, OTW video, and thermal video), to create a more accurate and rich 3D environment, while still maintaining near real-time performance. While GameSim had previous experience working with these formats, access to NGA through CRADA will provide the company with proper standards and data validated by NGA. In addition, GameSim and NGA will research the creation of a low bandwidth, browser-based visualization of that fused environment.
“We are creating a product that can fuse a variety of formats that adheres to established standards,” said Andrew Tosh, GameSim founder and president. “By collaborating with NGA it helps assure that GameSim produces a product that can meet the demands of the intelligence community, in terms of accessing their content and producing valuable visualizations.”
GameSim was ranked by Inc. Magazine as one of the 500 fastest growing companies in America. Learn more about GameSim and its current offerings here http://www.gamesim.com/.
