Abstract
As both security requirements and the computing demands of 3D simulation grow, new solutions that take advantage of the shift to cloud computing and broadband availability will be needed. With new services for online gaming set to hit the marketplace, similar capabilities in interactive simulation for training will be expected, though with a much more cost-effective platform. Orbital Technologies Inc. proposes to expand its web-based 3D simulation software suite into a server component/native web client application that will be capable of running a simulation optimized for training from a high performance computer. The Server-based Hypercosm 3D Interactive Platform for Simulation (SHIPS) will investigate a new paradigm in computing: cloud simulation. Cloud simulation blends the most promising aspects of high powered computing together with the benefits of mobile platforms. In the Phase I, ORBITECf?Ts web-based Hypercosm simulation system will be reprogrammed into a feasibility prototype that can send 3D simulation images from a server to a client. It will be expanded in the Phase I Option to include interactive multiplayer features that will demonstrate full future capabilities.
