Somerset, NJ, United States, 2012/04/20 - The Air Defense Artillery (ADA) Branch released its new application (App), “US Army Air Defender,” on the 30th of March. The App, developed by D2 TEAM-Sim, was created to be used as a recruiting tool for ADA - USArmyAirDefender.com.
The app simulates the progression of an ADA officer from entry level to general officer. “US Army Air Defender” provides the player with a brief tutorial, and starts him or her out as a second lieutenant (2LT). As a 2LT, the player will conduct training daily to become eligible for promotion. After completing prescribed tasks and missions at every level, players can be promoted through the ranks to Brigadier General (the highest level). Throughout the application, players will learn about ADA weapon systems, assignments, organizations, and history.
“US Army Air Defender” is available as a free download on the web at USArmyAirDefender.com, the iTunes Store, and Android Store. Players can also used points earned within the app to purchase items for use in an ADA mini-game and receive awards for their accomplishments. Players will be assigned a unique code that they can use to recruit other players, building their own unit organization from a squad up to an Army Air and Missile Defense Command (AAMDC). A monthly drawing will be held and players can win an ADA T-shirt and water bottle. The more a gamer plays, the more entries they will receive for the drawings.
“We are very pleased to have been able to work with the Office Chief Air Defense Artillery (OCADA) in creating this app” said James Cimino, Director of Technical Innovation for D2 TEAM-Sim. “The entire process has been a true collaborative between the customer and our development team. It has been an amazing process from conception to delivering the final app for multiple platforms: iOS, Android and web simultaneously.”
The Air Defense Artillery Branch continues to grow within the Army and remains on the cutting edge of technology.
