SIMbox technology will be used to advance research capabilities for leading university

SimiGon (LSE: SIM), a global leader in providing simulation training solutions, is pleased to announce that its SIMbox technology has been selected by the University of Central Florida (UCF), one of the largest universities in the U.S and an internationally recognised academic leader in the field of modeling, simulation and training.

UCF is the first university to select SimiGon's technology and the agreement marks a further expansion of SimiGon's customer base following February's move into the Chinese civil aviation market, a new sector and region for the Company.

SimiGon's technology will be utilised by UCF's Industrial Engineering and Management Systems (IEMS) Simulation Interoperability Lab in a simulation test-bed environment. UCF will tailor and adapt SIMbox to fit programme requirements, demonstrating the flexibility of SimiGon's technology which is capable of meeting rigorous and diverse simulation development requirements. In addition, the new link-up will enable SimiGon to draw on the expertise of one of the top research universities in the U.S.

Dr. Gene Lee, Professor at UCF IEMS, said, "We chose SIMbox for its ability to develop, support and manage air, land and sea simulation entities and scenarios and its ability to quickly integrate with other solutions. They are a renowned supplier of training and simulation technologies for some of the world's largest training programmes and SimiGon's technology will greatly enhance our simulation environment and research capabilities."

SimiGon President & CEO, Ami Vizer, said, "For our technology to be selected as a development platform by UCF, one of the largest universities in the U.S., and recognised as the academic leader in the Modeling and Simulation world, is further testimony to the strength of the SIMbox ecosystem we have continually developed and adapted. We look forward to supporting UCF research programs and leveraging this relationship to continue to develop and improve our advanced simulation development technologies."
