Hadean’s Aether Engine received praise for its ability to impact military training on a large scale, especially when combining live, virtual and constructive simulation training.
One judge commented: “Creating high-fidelity, scalable, low-latency and widely-distributed simulations presents many technical challenges. These challenges will become even more apparent as we take these data-intensive simulations out of the lab and bring them to test ranges. Hadean has developed a set of technologies that will support scaling up these types of simulations fully leveraging existing cloud infrastructures. Their client list is very impressive and we think adapting their commercial technology for defence use holds great promise.”
