Poised to display the latest in sophisticated warfighter technology via its Virtual Heroes Division, Applied Research Associates (ARA) has launched an exhibit at Orlando, Florida’s I/ITSEC event in the Orange County Convention Center.

Spokespersons for ARA’s virtual department, having been invested in game engine technology for a decade, expressed enthusiasm about demonstrating the company’s capabilities.

“We are excited to show off our capabilities across a wide range of technologies this year at I/ITSEC,” ARA Virtual Heroes division manager Randy Brown said. “With immersive experiences on Vive VR headsets and many license-free synthetic terrain GOTS technologies for our Warfighters, it promises to be a busy week.”

Attendees can preview Virtual Heroes’ work at the conference center’s booth 1207, where the company will spotlight achievements including frameworks called ASCEND, Globe, Point Cloud and Avionics Functional V22 VR. The applications distribute 3D data; provide immersive simulation; interact with cloud-based data, and provide cockpit training exercises, respectively.

ARA’s Virtual Heroes Division has earned numerous awards for its simulations, game technology and 3D virtual environments and its ability to provide state-of-the-art training for health care, government and private sector entities. The company’s Orlando-based office has collaborated with the military community for over a decade for advancing the defense industry.
