Orlando's Annual Armed Forces Jam Showcases Cutting-Edge Collaboration
In a remarkable display of collaboration and innovation, the Orlando MS&T (Modeling, Simulation, and Training) community recently came together for the third annual Armed Forces Jam, held at the Central Florida Tech Grove over the second weekend of September. Among the participants and participating organizations was CEO, Ali Mahvan, representing his company, Terasynth, a key player in the burgeoning Orlando tech scene.
For nearly a decade, Indienomicon has been spearheading this exciting event, which challenges developers to leverage their skills and creativity to address the diverse needs of the armed forces. The Armed Forces Jam encompasses a wide range of target areas, including artificial intelligence (AI), digital twins, electromagnetic spectrum, gaming, and cybersecurity.
One of the standout aspects of this year's Armed Forces Jam was the inclusion of representatives from both Unity, and Magic Leap, a renowned company specializing in augmented reality (AR) technology. This marked Magic Leap's inaugural participation in the event, and their involvement brought an exciting dimension to the challenge.
Magic Leap not only attended the event but also brought along their cutting-edge AR devices and a team of talented software developers. The intent was clear: to expose the participating developers to the incredible potential of pass-through augmented reality.
The Armed Forces Jam is a testament to the thriving tech ecosystem in Orlando, where collaboration and innovation go hand in hand. It serves as a platform for local companies like Terasynth and global leaders like Magic Leap to come together and push the boundaries of what is possible in the realms of modeling, simulation, and training.
As the event continues to grow and evolve, it not only highlights the expertise and creativity of the Orlando MS&T community but also reinforces the city's position as a hub for cutting-edge technology and collaboration. With each passing year, the Armed Forces Jam underscores the pivotal role that Orlando plays in shaping the future of military training and simulation.
