Simulation pact aims to improve warfighter training

  • 11-Dec-2009 11:27 EST

Lockheed Martin and Microsoft Corp. signed an intellectual property licensing agreement that allows Lockheed Martin to further develop Microsoft’s ESP PC-based visual simulation software platform to better train warfighters for battle. The agreement provides Lockheed Martin with access to the ESP technology portfolio, enabling the company to build cost-effective simulation solutions for customized training for its worldwide customers. Lockheed Martin's software development teams will extend the current capabilities of ESP to enable a new suite of ESP-based solutions that will evolve beyond flight training to include ground and civil agency applications.
