VR-Forces User Course

As part of this week-long course in our Cambridge office, you will learn the basics of our powerful and flexible VR-Forces computer generated forces platform - from creating objects, to tasking objects, to giving them plans to create basic scenarios. Then you'll go into more depth to help create complex multi-domain scenarios. You'll learn the basics of distributed simulation and delve into various movement, sensors, and weapon systems. You'll understand what to do to configure the GUI to meet your needs and use Lua scripting to create new more complex behaviors.
