Delivering Innovative Results
Synergy Summit - Waymon Armstrong, president of ECS, speaks at the G.A.M.E.S Synergy Summit. The G.A.M.E.S. Synergy Summit brings together people from the Government, Academia, Military, Entertainment and Simulation fields, to focus on the convergence of interactive games, immersive entertainment and simulation techniques & technologies.
ECS exhibits with the Joint Advanced Distributed Learning Co Laboratory and the US Army’s Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training & Instrumentation (PEOSTRI) at the 2004 AUSA annual meeting in Washington DC. This forum brings together the best capabilities and technologies the army has to offer active, guard and reserve components, as well as retirees, family members and civilians. ECS begins work on the “Unified Framework for Mobile Learning Technologies” with the Naval Education and Training Command (NETC).
ECS demonstrates ADL courseware using commercial gaming technologies for the Military Operations Research Society (MORS). The Symposium entitled “Training Transformation: Analysis and Assessment in new operational environments” was held in McLean, Virginia on the 28-30, September 2004. The objective of MORS is to enhance the quality and effectiveness of military operations research in order to better support decision making in the Department of Defense. ECS demonstrates the National Guard Bureau’s Civil Support Team Trainer at the 126th NGAUS conference at the Las Vegas convention center as part of the US Army PEOSTRI booth. Representatives from the National Guard Bureau stated that “ECS was a model of Consistency and Persistance” in helping them train our nation’s Civil Support Teams.
ECS demonstrated Intelligent Tutoring capabilities integrated into courseware powered by commercial gaming technology at the Joint ADL Co Laboratory’s Implementation Fest on August 18th. The Civil Support Team Trainer (CSTT) being developed by ECS makes use of a virtual mentor that has the ability to track and evaluate each student through a simulated scenario. The mentor can then determine appropriate methods of remediation. This demonstration allowed members of the ADL community to see the The CSTT is built around the “Gamebryo” engine developed by Numeric Designs Ltd. (NDL)
Training Propels Simulation Company. ECS is poised for a banner year as it finds its footing in a difficult business.
ECS Teams with NDL to Develop 3D Training Simulations for the Army National Guard. ECS contributes to I/ITSEC Panel discussion – The Games and Simulation Industry: Convergence or Collision? This panel addresses the influence that the simulation and games industries are having on one another. The panel members include video game publishers, creators of game-based software applied to education and training as well as entertainment and communication researchers. They will demonstrate exciting projects and the results of their artistic, technical and business endeavors.
ECS presents “Weapons of Mass Instruction: Using Structured Training in an Immersive Environment” with the Joint Advanced Distributed Learning Co-Laboratory at the eLearning conference and Expo 2003 in San Francisco. This discussion involves the training objectives and instructional concepts of the Civil Support Team Trainer (CSTT). ECS shows the Civil Support Team Trainer (CSTT) running on the “Scenario Platform” while exhibiting with PEOSTRI and the Joint ADL Co-Laboratory at the Inaugural Asia-Pacific Homeland Security Summit and Exposition.
ECS attends Plugfest 8 in support of their “Scenario Architecture” developed through the FY03 Joint ADL Co-Laboratory prototype program. Plugfests are a series of events to validate and document progress in meeting the collective requirements for reuse, adaptability, interoperability, cost-effectiveness and global access of the SCORM specifications. ECS demonstrates the Civil Support Team Trainer (CSTT) at the Worldwide Chemical Conference & Exhibition XX (WWCC) and Chemical Warfighters Conference (CWFC) at Ft. Leonard Wood.
ECS demonstrates the Civil Support Team Trainer (CSTT) built using the “Scenario Platform” The Scenario platform is being developed as a Distance Learning platform for distributed SCORM conformant simulations that can be tailored to address different training objectives. ECS exhibits the Civil Support Team Trainer (CSTT) with the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEOSTRI) and the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command (RDECOM) at the 125th NGAUS General Conference in Biloxi Mississippi. Civil Support Team Trainer (CSTT) preview released by Joint ADL Co-Laboratory at the Training Transformation Technologies: “Developing, Distributing and Assessing Joint Knowledge” Conference. This special day-and-a-half event focuses on the underlying training technologies required to fulfill the goals of the Training Transformation Implentation Plan, especially in the areas of creating and distributing knowledge, and assessing its...
The Civil Support Team Trainer (CSTT) concept is being demonstrated at the 2nd Annual Science & Technology Conference being held at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. The conference focus is homeland security and force protection. The CSTT is an immersive training platform to train our National Guard Civil Support Teams for Weapons of Mass Destruction.
