GPUs can revolutionize training and simulation:
NVIDIA’s new Ampere
Join RAVE Computer and NVIDIA on December 2 at 11:30 a.m. EST for a lively virtual panel during vIITSEC 2020 where we will get you up to speed on how the new generation of GPUs can continue to revolutionize simulation. You will be introduced to NVIDIA’s new Ampere series products, capabilities and roadmaps. Hear a discussion about best practices on how, when and where you can best adopt them. This virtual panel is Part 1 of a series where we will discuss how you can optimize, select, integrate and deploy the most effective technology into your training and simulation programs.

Real World Experience
In short, our extensive Modeling, Simulation and Visualization experience and capability to support and execute computer hardware related tasks for Training & Simulation programs of record have been demonstrated on various contracts such as Aviation Combined Arms Tactical Trainer (AVCATT), Basic Skills Trainer (BST), Virtual Clearance Training Suites (VCTS) and Combat Convoy Simulator (CCS). Certainly, our experience is leveraged in the following ways:
- Providing support for product line management, multiple variants of a system, working collaboratively in an Integrated Product Teams (IPT).
- Supporting requirements traceability management tools and processes, hardware and software configuration items and interface tools and processes, and supporting facility status tools and processes and performing gap analysis.
- Support for IOS System Production Capability, Trainee System Production, providing documentation, supporting Interim Logistical Support.
- Demonstrated flexibility in designing, developing and configuring a wide range of Human in the Loop (HITL) Computer systems used to train the force.
Likewise, we have performed successfully on myriad Training & Simulation programs across all services as shown in the snapshot below:
