VT MAK Demonstrates New Product Capabilities, Highlights Customer Solutions at I/ITSEC 2011

VT MAK showcases new product capabilities in interactive solution-oriented demonstrations and customer crafted simulations

Cambridge, Mass., November 22, 2011 - VT MAK (MAK), a company of VT Systems, Inc. (VT Systems), today announced that it will be showcasing new product capabilities through a series of solution oriented demonstrations at I/ITSEC 2011, November 28 – December 1 (Booth #2549) in Orlando, Florida. MAK will be featuring two customer simulations, custom integration efforts featuring new product features and partner products, and a full slate of traditional product capability demonstrations.

MAK is pleased to host its customers SRC, Inc. and the C4I Center in their booth this year.

  • SRC will be demonstrating their text-to-speech synthesis technology integrated into a VR-Forces simulation. The ultimate goal of the SRC system is to use synthesized speech to completely and successfully mimic the speech pattern of a live human.
  • The C4I Center, a collaborative effort of George Mason University and InstitutoTecnológico de Aeronáutica, will be demonstrating how they developed a testbed using VR-Forces and VR-Vantage XR to study planning for relief operations. 

MAK will also unveil an Intelligence, Reconnaissance, and Surveillance (ISR) Lab that models an unmanned vehicle system (UVS). The ISR Lab presents several components: UAV mission planning and flight simulation using VR-Forces; a UAV control station built with DiSTI’s GL-Studio; UAV sensor video rendered with VR-Vantage with sensor modes provided by JRM Technologies; and Scalable Network Technologies’ Exata network emulator which models the radio network that affects the quality of the video transmission as it streams from the UVS to the ground station. An analysis station using AGI's SimMetrics to model GPS accuracy and sensor detections will also be demonstrated.

In conjunction with the exhibition, MAK will present innovative solutions in a variety of formats:

  • Jim Kogler, Director of COTS Products for MAK will present “Simulated Video – Video Generation for Unmanned Vehicle Systems” at the Innovation Showcase on Monday, November 28, at 4:00 p.m.
  • On Wednesday, November 30, MAK will be presenting a paper entitled "Open Streaming Terrain for Modeling and Simulation" at 4:00 pm in room W304G.
  • MAK is also presenting an innovative solution to after show events at its MAK Fest – Distributed I/ITSEC Soirees. Hosted by MAK on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights, these events will give attendees the chance to network and unwind at three exciting Orlando venues.

- Monday, November 28– Celebration kicks off at Howl at the Moon on International Drive at 7:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, November 29 – Fireworks lakeside at Walt Disney World’s Epcot Park.
- Wednesday,November 30 – Karaoke at Rising Star Karaoke at Universal CityWalk.
