Unity certified by U.S. Army and Air Force

Tech can be installed on secure networks and used for military sims, applications and mobile devices

Unity development technology, including the Unity Web Player, has been certified by the U.S. Army and Air Force to be installed on the military's secure networks.

The move will allow Unity to be used to create serious games, applications and training software, on networks, laptops and mobile devices used in the field.

"Getting our Army Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) and being placed on the U.S. Air Force AF E/APL are big steps forward for us in government Modeling Training and Simulation licensing," commented Davey Jackson, director of simulation and visualisation sales at Unity Technologies.

"What is significant about this certification is that we received accreditation for the Unity Web Player in addition to the Unity development platform. This will have a huge impact on the rate at which distributed simulations can be developed and deployed."

Agreed. Same for Australia's Defence Force. Systems running on the secure network adds another layer (and cost) to the development process. Ideal for developing the many versatile SG solutions there is still plenty of opportunity for.
