At Tuesday night’s Unite Awards in Boston, USA; Pennant were nominated for an award in the Visual Simulation category with Virtual Parachute Training Simulator (VPTS). We are proud to announce that we were successful in winning the award.
You can see the Visual Simulation section of the awards show here.
We would like to thank all those who were involved in the making of VPTS, congratulations.
VPTS combines innovative software, hardware and mechanical design to provide a highly realistic, yet perfectly safe, training rig for parachutists. The jump experience is fully immersive, utilising a physical suspension rig, VR headset and sensor suit to provide real-time feedback. Each VPTS jump is unique as the conditions, terrain, equipment and problems which may be encountered by the student are controlled and observed by the instructor.
The Unite Awards are hosted by Unity® and showcase products built around the Unity Engine. Selection as a finalist is acknowledged industry-wide as a testimony to the innovation, imagination and creativity of the nominees. We are therefore doubly-delighted to have won the Best Visual Simulation Project (VIZSIM) Award.
