Aaron Dubois, one of MÄK’s Principal Software Engineers, stockpiled three awards yesterday at the 2015 Fall Simulation Interoperability Workshop in Orlando.
Aaron won for his work developing the RPR FOM 2.0 standard, which we recently discussed in our September newsletter. The first was for outstanding contributions to the development of the guidance document (SISO-STD-001-2015), and the second was for outstanding contributions to the development of the FOM itself (SISO-STD-001.1-2015). He also received a Technical Merit Award for “substantial contributions to the processing and publication of Standard for Guidance, Rationale, and Interoperability Modalities for the Real-time Platform Reference Federation Object Model.” Upon winning, Aaron posed with his awards in a conquering manner for the paparazzi (see photo below).
The SIW is an annual event established by the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization. It consists of forums and special sessions that cover modeling and simulation, including state-of-the-art methodologies, tools, and exhibits displaying the latest technological advances.
