Pitch – a World Leading Provider
Pitch Technologies (Pitch) is a leading provider of Open Standards compliant products, services and solutions for interoperable distributed simulation systems. Our products and solutions are being used by some of the largest and most complex system development, integration and test, and exercise & training delivery programs across a global range of sectors including Defence, Aerospace, Air Traffic Control, Security, Transport, Energy and Medicine.
Pitch was founded in 1991 from a solid background in Computer Science / Information Technology, with the vision to develop a dynamic knowledge organization committed to delivering the most innovative and cost effective interoperability products and solutions for distributed simulations.
Pitch is owned by BAE Systems, a world-wide enterprise with more than 100,000 employees, but continues to operate independently.
Pitch understands the strength of co-operation, and has alignments and partnerships with hi-tech companies worldwide to integrate, market, sell and support our standards-based products and solutions, including:
With over 80,000 licences sold, in more than 35 countries, our innovative products and solutions have attracted a global customer base from across government and industry in many sectors, not just defence.
Pitch is playing an active role in the M&S Community. We are heavily involved in development of Open Standards like the IEEE1516-2010 HLA (High Level Architecture) Evolved standard for simulation interoperability , and are currently part of the core technical and management team tasked to develop the next generation.
Pitch is a sponsor and active member of the Simulation Interoperability Standards Organization (SISO)
We have an enviable record of many prominent and successful examples where our technology has been used, including:
- Viking Exercise Series – The World’s Largest Peace Support Training Event
- Docking the Space Station – Training the ATV-2 control crew of ISS
- HLA upgrade – The Swedish Air Combat Simulation Centre
- NETN – The NATO Education and Training Network
Innovation calls for continuous development and change. An important part of our vision is therefore to foster a creative environment where “out-of-the-box” thinking is the rule rather than the exception. To continuously innovate and develop new products and concepts takes a team effort; hence our ambition to build a great company that attracts, develops, excites and retains the most talented people.
