Cyber Essentials Certification

Pitch Technologies is proud to announce that it holds a Cyber Essentials Certificate. The Cyber Essentials Scheme is a set of measures that all organisations should implement to protect against basic cyber-threats. Implementation of these controls can significantly reduce the risk of prevalent but unskilled cyber-attack. The UK Government and the UK MOD requires suppliers to have Cyber Essentials certification in place. For more information, see   Read more

Pitch Talk: HLA has a voice!

Pitch Talk is the world's first complete solution for training communications. Pitch Talk provides voice, chat, and simulated intercom and radio with centrally managed and dynamic channels. Uniquely suited for distributed simulations, an administrator working alone can centrally configure, validate, and test all instances. Pitch Talk is natively HLA and thus more powerful and extensible than DIS radios, but Pitch Talk can be used with RPR/DIS radios. Unlike DIS radios constrained to local area networks, Pitch Talk also operates over WANs between ... Read more

Evolving Standards

Pitch is leading the development of HLA 4. New capabilities will include service-oriented structure for cloud computing, and enhancements in scalability and extensibility. HLA 4 will take simulation in many domains to new levels.   All over the world, RPR FOM 2 is the most used Federation Object Model for defense and security. Building upon the success of RPR FOM 2, Pitch leads the development of the next version, RPR FOM 3, that will take a new, modernized approach to interoperability and add ... Read more

Vulcain 2016

Vulcain 2016 was a French Army distributed combined arms training exercise involving geographically separated sites. A dozen different simulation systems and trainers were linked together, including FAC trainers, helicopter simulators, constructive simulations, and small arms and light weapons trainers. Pitch's pRTI managed Vulcain's HLA Evolved networks, and Pitch Boosters provided WAN connectivity that integrated local and remote simulators into unified Federations. Pitch Recorder captured exercise activity for After Action Review and analysis. Pitch Talk provided voice and text chat communications to all ... Read more

Pitch’s Global Simulation Arena

Pitch provides customers and partners a globally accessible, always online, distributed simulation network ("backbone") called the "Global Simulation Arena" (GSA). Pitch's GSA is a 24/7 HLA network that hosts HLA Federations where GSA users can develop, test, and demonstrate their HLA Federates. For free. For example, a user developing just one HLA Federate can join a large Federation in order to test the user's Federate in a rich, varied, dense, HLA environment. Need 24/7 access to the Global Simulation Arena? Contact Pitch right ... Read more

Pitch Powers the new VBS Gateway

VBS Gateway is a user-friendly gateway application for VBS3, which allows for interoperability using HLA, DIS and CIGI protocols. Bohemia Interactive Simulations utilized Pitch Technologies' Developer Studio to create VBS Gateway. Developer Studio generates C++ and Java code, supports any domain or FOM (Federated Object Model), and supports common RTIs and all HLA versions. Read more

The Swedish Air Force Door Gunner Prototype

The Swedish Air Force successfully demonstrated their Door Gunner Trainer Prototype at the recent Air Defence days at the Malmen Air Base. The event was one part of the celebration of the Swedish Air Force 90 year anniversary. The Trainer Prototype takes advantage of COTS technology and Open Standards to deliver low cost tactical and procedural training. Pitch Technologies hosted the trainer in their booth at the event. Over the course of the 4 days some 250 'training missions' were flown, with over 75,000 simulated rounds ... Read more

Pitch Products Support the New RPR FOM 2.0

The most widely used federation object model used in defense simulation is the Real-Time Platform Reference FOM, standardized by SISO. The RPR FOM is also part of the NATO Education and Training FOM (NETN FOM). Pitch has lead the development of the latest version, RPR FOM 2.0, that has now been released. The best way to develop your own RPR FOM extensions is to use Pitch Visual OMT. Generate C++ and Java code for the RPR FOM using Pitch Developer Studio. ... Read more
