I/ITSEC 2021: Securing strategic advantage through synthetic environments

As the UK and our allies enter a new era of long-term strategic competition, our adversaries are looking to challenge us on every front. They’ll compete politically, commercially, economically, diplomatically, psychologically and militarily – and all the time.

In the face of such a complex, fast-moving and interrelated range of threats, our governments and armed forces are striving to transform how they plan, train and operate.

At I/ITSEC this year, Improbable’s defence division will be demonstrating how we’re working with partners from across industry and academia to make this transformation possible.

If you’d like to experience the latest generation of synthetic environment capabilities for planning, training and decision support, please email the team at defence.enquiries@improbable.io to arrange a demonstration. You’ll find us at stand 1248.

Booth 1248: Experience our technology in action

Plan

Enhancing operational and strategic decision support

Our operational analysis & decision support demonstration simulates a missile and disinformation strike on an urban environment and tracks its impact on the mobilization times and attrition rates of reserve forces and civilians in a simulated city that can be run in real time or faster than real time.

The demonstration shows the flexibility and extensibility of Improbable's platform, the ease at which additional model integrations can occur, and our platform's ability to capture key strategic or operational level analytics over the course of a simulation.

Train

Transforming collective training

Our collective training capability shows how a single platform can support a wide range of organizations from across industry and academia, and help our armed forces train faster and more efficiently.

The technology demonstrator comprises immersive and scalable collective training solutions, with more than 5,000 simulated users interacting within a realistic environment in real time.

Harnessing the power of commercial game - development technology

Improbable's games business recently developed an experimental gameplay mode that allows thousands of distributed players to enter a virtual world simultaneously, pushing the limits on player density and scale.

Improbable's defense business was able to take the innovations from our commercial games business and, within six weeks, augment it to serve defense needs, proving the ability to quickly leverage this technology for anything from military training to readiness and battlefield effectiveness.
