IPKeys Technologies’ Developed I-GAME Elevates Military Modeling and Simulation

IPKeys announced today that they have been awarded a multi-year contract in support of the ongoing and ever important Counter-Improvised Explosive Device (C-IED) initiative. This follows a period of testing and requirements definition which have matured Immersive-Gaming and Modeling Environments (I-GAME). The goal of these efforts is to elevate and expand the Live Virtual and Constructive (LVC) Modeling and Simulation program available to a wide array of customers whose technology needs exceed the current and projected marketplace of “of-the-shelf” product base. IPKeys has licensed Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3 from ARA to produce state of the art 3D training simulations for the Warfighter, with the intent to train and teach in regards to Counter-IEDs. However the platform has been built to not only support the C-IED community but also provides a plug-in approach which also serves the mission planner with sophisticated AI and a multitude of games assets which will provide an accurate environment for the Warfighter. These products create the most cutting edge imagery in the field and combined with IPKeys’ use of highly accurate satellite data and physics-based properties, IPKeys and the customers can now create the most realistic maps, locales, conditions, materials and machinery to match exactly what the Warfighter sees, uses and knows. “What we’re trying to do is create an environment where you can challenge each other, enjoy and rely on what you are creating and operating, and still get better in a real world environment because you are going through a process of learning,” said Kirk Hymes, the director for modeling and simulation applications and U.S. Marine Corps Programs at IPKeys. Mark Pappas, President of IPKeys added,, “We are extremely proud to offer the battle planner and Warfighter, tactical or strategically based, with premier tools from the best sources, Government and commercial alike. Specifically, those Warfighters deployed who need reliable and trusted data can now use a lightweight platform to keep them out of harm’s way and allow for them to reach their objectives with the Situational Awareness (SA) they deserve.”

IPKeys Technologies’ flagship title I-GAME (IED Gaming and Modeling Environment) is currently being developed using the Unreal Engine. These realistic simulations allow for equipment usage training, rapid authoring of interactive 3-D scenarios, and offer the user the choice of creating custom, on-the-fly scenarios, or having the computer generate random scenarios. The modeling and simulation technology used by IPKeys produces state-of-the-art training capabilities for military applications in exercise control (EXCON), instrumentation and range communication infrastructures, reducing cost and time required for live simulations, open air testing and deployments. Our state of the art simulations create life saving mission preparation and information retention that maximizes limited training time and lowers costs.
