SIMULATION
  • Simulations save lives, money and time
  • M&S technologies are used in training, planning, analysis, engineering, test and evaluation
  • Research can be performed using simulation instead of costly and often times damaging live or “real world” events

“Almost every soldier or Marine deployed to the Middle East is trained on some kind of system developed in Central Florida.”

Orlando Sentinel, Jan. 11, 2009

florida is the m s leader
FLORIDA IS THE M&S LEADER
  • M&S is a national “Critical Technology” with its epicenter in Florida
  • Florida has M&S academic programs in high schools, an Associate’s Degree at Daytona State College (DSC) and Doctoral Program at UCF
  • Florida University incubators nurture M&S start-up companies
  • Over 55,000 jobs in Florida support the M&S industry
