Prepar3D ® – Lockheed Martin’s mid-fidelity visual simulation software – demonstrated its strategic role in the future of serious training at this year’s Defense GameTech Users’ Conference in Orlando. The annual conference is the centerpiece of an effort by the Department of Defense to advance game and virtual world technologies to improve training and human performance.

For Lockheed Martin representatives Martile Allen and Wes Bard from the Prepar3D ® development team, it was an opportunity to show potential users the true value of what the powerful, mid-fidelity software could add to a training program. “At the end of the day, we want people to know that Prepar3D ® is the next generation in affordable training technology,” said Martile. “Given Prepar3D ®’s compatibility with Microsoft Flight Sim add-ons, the fact that it can be reconfigured to represent a variety of environments and the fact that third party developers can create their own add-ons, we think it provides tremendous value and re-usability for users.”

Conference attendees were enthusiastic about Prepar3D ®. Some noted the new bathymetry and sensor out-of-the-box capability, which they said adds tremendous usability for warfighters to use in training. Others liked the convenience of the commercial web site and online store which made it easier for them to access, faster.

Next, the Prepar3D ® team will travel to Cologne, Germany, for the annual International Training and Education Conference (ITEC) held May 10-12, 2011.
