Presagis Delivers Its Vision for an Open, Unified Workflow with Presagis Aeria

Interoperability, correlation, and re-use drive new modeling and simulation environment

STOCKHOLM, Sweden, June 10 -- ITEC - Presagis, a leading provider of commercial-off-the shelf (COTS) modeling, simulation and embedded display graphics software, today introduced Presagis Aeria, the company's vision for a unified modeling and simulation workflow. Aeria brings together a singular portfolio of COTS software into an open, scalable and reusable platform for the development of land, air and sea applications. With Aeria, users create, simulate, visualize, and analyze within a unified work environment.

"Technology needs to support the way developers work and let them focus on creating dynamic, stimulating and innovative scenarios," said Patrice Commune, President, Presagis. "With Aeria, technology becomes an extension of a developer's imagination, realizing the Presagis vision for a vendor-agnostic work environment."

Aeria includes leading industry software brands such as Creator(TM), Terra Vista(TM), STAGE(TM), VAPS XT(TM), and Vega Prime(TM), and provides the ability to leverage new and existing standards in order to eliminate application integration and interoperability issues.

The complete openness of Aeria is enabled by the Common Database (CDB) specification. A commercial, open standard, CDB will ensure full integration of Presagis software and third party applications as well as the reusability of data across projects.

Industry standards are also fundamental to the Presagis vision for an open and scalable workflow. Within Aeria, Presagis continues to promote open standards such as OpenFlight(TM) and TerraPage(TM), government standards such as OTF, CTDB and JCATS, as well as simulation and communication standards including HLA and DIS.

"Aeria addresses the widespread technical challenges our community has faced when developing mission-critical models and simulations," said Nick Giannias, Vice President, Research and Technology, Presagis. "No longer will the industry have to live with database reusability and correlation issues, or get locked into disparate software solutions that are not interoperable. Aeria provides complete interoperability between development phases and ensures reusability across multiple projects."

"Aeria will better enable the modeling and simulation industry to choose from a wide variety of applications, standards, and formats giving users more freedom in their workflow," said Dave Hallforth, Vice President, Camber Corporation. "As both a technology partner and customer of Presagis, we see Aeria as an exciting step into the next generation of simulation."

Delivering a true, out-of-the-box experience, Aeria increases project efficiency and reduces the time it takes from the receipt of new source data to rehearsing a mission by establishing a well-defined workflow with the following capabilities:

- Content Creation - Ability to create high resolution synthetic environment databases by importing virtually any GIS data, sensor materials, 3D models, and existing databases.

- Simulation - Easily create and control intelligent entities, add photorealistic graphical interfaces, and interact with other simulations in a distributed environment.

- Visualization - Develop and deploy high performance visual simulation applications and real-time 60Hz image generators while supporting operation on multiple hardware/operating system platforms.

- Analysis - Track key performance parameters with accurate monitoring and collection of data for After Action Reviews.

Making its European debut at ITEC 2008 in Stockholm, Sweden, Presagis will unveil the Aeria vision at booth B116 June 10-12, 2008.
