Just before CES we took off for sunny Florida to see the best simulation hardware and software the world has to offer.

Manufacturer: I/ITSEC



Late last year we were invited to attend the I/ITSEC trade show with AVADirect. I/ITSEC or Interservice / Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference is the premier trade show for military, defense contractors and the supporting cast of companies that make the US military the best prepared in the world.

The show covers a wide range of topics and offers education on a wide range of specialties. There were flight simulators as you might imagine, drone flying simulators and several areas that most of us wouldn't think about, like driving a fire truck.

Today we're going to take a look at some really cool technology at the show and see the pictures. Our host for the event, AVADirect had several systems running in the booths, more than any other system builder by far. I've known those behind AVADirect for a few years now and have heard them say their biggest market is government and defense contractor sales, now I see what they mean.

The AVADirect systems powering these massive displays and training tools are not unlike what you and I use to game on, when we build insane systems that cost upwards of $10k to $15K. The difference is these companies don't use just one system; they have several working together to deliver redundant, very powerful FPS beasts that crunch data at very impressive rates.
