Madrid, Spain, 2012/12/12 - NADS and Presagis have agreed to team up to promote modeling & simulation (M&S) solutions based on both companies’ commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software. On November 8th, representatives of the two parties signed a Marketing Agreement.
The agreement includes collaboration for marketing of COTS-based solutions for Live-Virtual-Constructive (LVC) interoperability, based on the new Layered Simulation Architecture (LSA). These solutions will be based on Presagis product lines and SIMWARE, the flagship product from NADS.
The term "LSA" comes from Layered Simulation Architecture which is the name of a Study Group started this year within SISO (Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization). LSA is applying best concepts of Open Architectures and Net-Centric interoperability to improve the convergence of architectures for LVC distributed simulation.
NADS, is the provider of SIMWARE simulation architecture and one of the leaders of the LSA initiative. Using its new LSA Laboratory (LSA Lab), NADS will integrate Presagis flagship products like STAGE™, Vega Prime™, HeliSIM™ or FlightSIM™ into the SIMWARE™ platform, providing the best test bed to experiment with LSA.
The LSA Lab is a concept demonstrator fully funded by NADS and inspired by the LSA initiative. It consists of a LVC Simulation environment based on SIMWARE architecture and will be used as a test bed for interoperability between third-party training & simulation solutions in compliance of LSA. The LSA Lab will be located in Madrid.
With the signed agreement, NADS is looking to add top-class commercial products to the SIMWARE™ ecosystem of third-party COTS.
At the same time, NADS will develop joint marketing activities with PRESAGIS to promote bundled solutions worldwide.
