IPKeys & Gamebase USA Partner for Government Simulation Project


Eatontown, New Jersey and Research Triangle Park, North Carolina. September 26, 2011. IPKeys has selected Gamebase USA's Gamebryo LightSpeed development system to create counter-IED (C-IED) simulations for US Forces. LightSpeed will be used in IPKeys' critical tasking with the Federal Government, specifically with the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization's Technical Gaming Team (JIEDDO TGT).

Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are one of the primary threats to U.S. service members operating overseas. The Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) was created to aggressively and rapidly find, develop, test and deliver counter-IED (C-IED) capabilities for our armed forces. "At the tactical level, insurgents have proven skilled at quickly adapting to the US forces C-IED procedures by altering their IED designs and deployment methods. IPKeys did an extensive evaluation to ensure that any technology we use provides the capability to rapidly incorporate the very latest tactics, techniques and procedures," said Mark Pappas, President for IPKeys Technologies.

IPKeys is a premier licensee of Gamebase USA and plans to integrate Gamebryo LightSpeed into its IED Gaming and Modeling Environment (I-GAME) as part of its ongoing work with the United States Department of Defense. LightSpeed will allow IPKeys Modeling and Simulation Team to further develop I-GAME, an "on-the-fly" 3D authoring capability that allows the Warfighter to simulate virtual battlefield conditions that closely approximate the current operating environment.

"LightSpeed's rapid development iteration capabilities will allow IPKeys to quickly adapt I-GAME's simulations to meet the changing battlefield," said Mark Pappas, President, IPKeys. "More than that, it gives us core technology around which we can build our company and a whole new generation of simulation development. LightSpeed gives IPKeys the ability to create prototypes in just a few weeks and will dramatically increase the number of projects we can address." Gamebryo LightSpeed is being used as the core technology to create simulations for the military, government, corporate and aerospace sectors. The revolutionary rapid prototyping, rapid iteration and real-time update capabilities of LightSpeed give developers the agility to quickly react to the evolving needs of today's military.

"We are proud to partner with IPKeys on the C-IED simulations project. The Gamebryo LightSpeed engine has ensured reliability and flexibility IPKeys needed for developing and implementing I-GAME. With this new partnership, IPKeys will be able to further harness the engine's capabilities to effectively and efficiently build a flexible, easy-to-use interactive trainer," said David Brame, CEO of Gamebase USA. "IPKeys' simulations train and prepare our armed forces for some of the most critical situations they will need to handle on the battlefield, and we are excited to be part of the endeavor and continue to make headway into the serious games space, specifically with regards to working on U.S. Military titles with IPKeys."
