Herndon, Virginia – October 3, 2008– Valador, Inc., a Government Professional Services company based in Herndon, VA announced today that it had entered into an Industry Partnership with the National Defense University, Information resource Management College (IRMC) in Washington, DC. The goal of the partnership agreement is to demonstrate the potential use of Valador Modeling and Simulation (M&S) technologies within IRMC’s classrooms and labs and to strengthen both parties’ professional network and information resources by facilitating knowledge sharing and collaboration.
As part of the agreement, Valador has installed its Distributed Observer Network (DON) within the IRMC Simulation Lab. Originally developed for users across the NASA Field Centers, the DON uniquely enables teams of engineers and analysts to view and collaborate on 3-D real-world representations of the environmental, design, and operational data from models, geometry, and actual telemetry. Based on modern game engine technology, the DON enhances the visualization of the results of the models and simulations and allows multiple users to connect securely using their desktop or laptop computers and view the simulation results from anywhere in the world. The DON allows each user to independently view and move within the simulation environment. The collaboration tools also facilitate real-time communication via Voice-Over IP (VOIP) and text chat, as well as long-term communication through saved notes.
For additional information, Valador produced a video presentation about the DON available online at YouTube.
