IRVINE, Calif., July 23, 2012 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D solutions provider, today announced that the Interactive Digital Center at the Southeastern Institute of Manufacturing and Technology (SiMT) in Florence, SC, recently jointly exhibited at the Seventh Annual Capitol Hill Modeling and Simulation Expo, on June 28, 2012, in Washington DC.
Modeling and simulation technology is rapidly moving into new areas of application, including cyber security training, emergency response and homeland security preparedness, a wide variety of clinical and medical training, as well as more traditional military and national security readiness. The variety and timeliness of the capabilities on display at the Expo testified this rapid expansion of the technology into all areas of human learning and training, as well as to the exciting developments that promise to soon erase the barrier between reality and Virtual Reality.
Organized by the Arlington-based National Training and Simulation Association, (NTSA), with the cooperation and participation of the Congressional Modeling and Simulation Caucus, this event is Washington area’s largest annual exhibition of modeling, simulation, and virtual reality technology. It featured 18 exhibitors and EON Reality and SiMT jointly showed examples of how 3D and interactive simulation-based technology is utilized in the aerospace sector with maintenance training and in the manufacturing sector for assembly line and production line training.
“The Capitol Hill Expo provided us the opportunity to engage and educate U.S. congressmen/women and their staff on some of the capabilities of 3D Interactive and Simulation based technology solutions,” said Mike Mazen Associate Director of VR Center at SiMT. “It is critical our policy makers understand the power of this technology and to affirm that it is not some futuristic technology, but instead is being used today by leading companies in their perspective industry sectors.”
