RAVE Computer to Showcase Real-Time Collaborative Battle Simulation Over 5G at I/ITSEC, World's Largest Modeling, Simulation and Training Event

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–RAVE Computer, a leader in the development of purpose-built computing solutions, today announced it will showcase a real-time collaborative virtual battle simulation at I/ITSEC 2021, the world’s largest modeling, simulation and training event. The showcased solution is the result of a collaboration between RAVE Computer, Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc., Varjo, and Real-Time Innovations (RTI). It will feature RAVE’s RenderBEAST compute, the Varjo XR-3 HMD, Kratos’ immersive battle simulation content, and 5G communication technology by RTI.

“At I/ITSEC, the participants will be located in the same building. However, this solution will allow soldiers to collaboratively participate in immersive training directly from wherever they are located around the world––not only breaking down geographic borders––but truly enabling training at the point of need.”

The demonstrations will feature three participants, operating in individual booths, over a 5G cellular network in a multi-participant battlefield simulation. Leveraging training and simulation content from Kratos, and RAVE’s innovative RenderBEAST compute––the communications capabilities provided by RTI will allow all operators to participate in the simulated training together in one virtual environment––setting an example of how collaborative multi-participant training can be delivered regardless of the soldiers’ geographically distinct locations.

“RAVE Computer’s collaboration with Kratos Training Solutions, Varjo, and Real-Time Innovations reinforces our commitment to continuing to evolve the delivery of defense training,” said Jim Powers, Director of Professional Services, RAVE Computer“At I/ITSEC, the participants will be located in the same building. However, this solution will allow soldiers to collaboratively participate in immersive training directly from wherever they are located around the world––not only breaking down geographic borders––but truly enabling training at the point of need.”

Battle Simulation Training Powered by RAVE RenderBEAST Compute

The battle simulation is powered by RAVE’s Varjo-ready RenderBEAST compute, featuring the NVIDIA RTX 3090 GPU and Intel Core i9-11900K processor. The RenderBEAST is designed to be flexible, customizable and adaptable to customer specification. Boasting whisper-quiet performance and a compact form factor, it has been rigorously tuned to support power draw, acoustic output, and thermal performance targets to ensure customers have a balanced system that can run in boost mode for extended periods. This balanced approach delivers highly efficient workflows and lets customers extract maximum value from the workstation to deliver world-class, professional-grade AR/VR/XR. Additional customization can be made to optimize performance for specific customer applications.

The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) is the world’s largest modeling, simulation and training event. Held near the beginning of December in Orlando, Florida, USA, I/ITSEC consists of peer-reviewed paper presentations, tutorials, special events, professional workshops, a commercial exhibit hall, a serious games competition, and STEM events for teachers and secondary students. I/ITSEC is organized and sponsored by the National Training & Simulation Association (NTSA), which promotes international and interdisciplinary cooperation within the fields of modeling and simulation (M&S), training, education, analysis, and related disciplines at this annual meeting. The NTSA is an affiliate subsidiary of the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA). Hence, I/ITSEC also emphasizes themes related to defense and security.
