Raytheon Solipsys Releases VECTOR Simulation and Training Tool

TEWKSBURY, Mass., Sept. 17, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- A wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) has expanded its solution set for command and control, homeland defense, surveillance and air traffic management.

Raytheon Solypsis has released a new simulation and training tool -- Virtual Environment for Collaborative Training and Operational Readiness (VECTOR).

"VECTOR provides the user with a simplified operator interface to create real-world scenarios in a matter of minutes," said Mark Trenor, president of Raytheon Solipsys. "With VECTOR, the user can design coordinated simulations at both tactical and strategic levels."

VECTOR delivers a dynamic environment for developing and executing training, operational readiness evaluation, and testing activities. It is fully interoperable with all of the latest Raytheon Solipsys-based software systems and incorporates industry standard Distributed Interactive Simulation interface to facilitate streamlined integration with other existing and future third party applications.

"An example of an application could be quickly creating a scenario that includes pre-recorded traffic with specifically tailored scripts," Trenor said. "Another use could be to take manual control of scripted objects to create stressful situations for an operator to further enhance the training experience," Trenor added.
