MAK builds software to simulate and visualize 3D virtual worlds for military training. We simulate everything from autonomous submarines at the bottom of the ocean, to vehicles and people on the ground and in the air, to satellites in space. We render complex and dynamic scenes on multi-channel high-resolution projected displays and in virtual reality devices. We connect together simulators across the world so that people on different continents can train next to each other in the virtual battlefield.
