IPKeys licenses Unreal Engine 3 for military simulations

Epic Games' engine will power counter-IED simulation

Defense IT and software firm IPKeys Technologies has licensed Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3 from Applied Research Associates to develop military training simulations. IPKeys flagship simulation is the IED Gaming and Modeling Environment (I-GAME), which will now be powered by Unreal Engine 3.

I-GAME's focus is the training of Counter-IED techniques and tactics, providing a state-of-the-art 3D virtual environment for mission planners and Warfighters.

“With Unreal Engine 3, IPKeys can now create the most realistic maps, locales, conditions, materials and virtual soldiers to match exactly what the Warfighter sees, uses and knows,” said Kirk Hymes, director for Modeling and Simulation Applications and U.S. Marine Corps Programs at IPKeys.

“We are extremely proud to offer the battle planner and Warfighter tactical, strategically-based, premier tools from the best sources - government and commercial alike. Specifically, deployed Warfighters who need reliable and trusted data can now use a lightweight platform to keep them out of harm's way and allow for them to reach their objectives with the situational awareness they deserve,” said Mark Pappas, president of IPKeys.
