Entegra Systems and Immersive Wisdom Deliver Virtual Reality to Cyber Quest 2018

Companies demonstrate a Virtual Reality-based, multi-user collaborative solution to enhance situational awareness and understanding, battle planning and management, and cyber data analysis, during a multi-week exercise hosted by the Army Cyber Center of Excellence (CCOE), Cyber Battle Lab (CBL).

Hanover, Maryland – September 24, 2018 – Entegra Systems Inc., a leading provider of advanced technology, integration, and analytic solutions and services, and Immersive Wisdom Inc., creator of a leading immersive, collaborative, distributed Virtual and Augmented Reality environment for information analysis and situational understanding, announced today they jointly participated in Cyber Quest 2018, an annual multi-week exercise to evaluate cyber and electronic warfare tactics and technologies hosted by the Army Cyber Center of Excellence (CCoE), Cyber Battle Lab, in Fort Gordon, Georgia. Entegra Systems and Immersive Wisdom’s participation included onsite development of a Virtual Tactical Operations Center (VTOC), which captured tactical data during the live exercises and provided real-time updates to the brigade staff to enhance their situational understanding.

The Virtual TOC allowed brigade staff to ingest, visualize, analyze, augment, and collaborate upon diverse data sets, including data from both electronic warfare and cyber sensors, and from legacy applications, within a temporal and geospatially-aware Virtual/Mixed/Augmented Reality space. Multiple users worked together in a virtual room/world, standing on maps, surrounded by tactical and other mission-relevant data in an immersive space. Users simultaneously interacted with and analyzed a comprehensive, 3D, real-time view of the battlespace which included sensor feeds, cyber/network data, collection platforms, tagged assets, imagery, and UAV video.

This year’s exercise was held June 4 through June 27, 2018, to allow the Cyber Battle Lab to evaluate emerging technologies from government, industry, and academia in a tactical environment against associated Army required capabilities.  The exercise outcomes are used to inform the capability definition and doctrine writing efforts, validate concepts, and better understand doctrine, organization, training, material, leadership and education, personnel facilities and policy impacts for those concepts under evaluation.  Cyber Quest also served as a risk mitigation event that Army acquisition and capability development proponents can leverage to validate selected candidate’s solutions for participation in Army/Joint exercises and experiments (i.e. Joint Warfighting Assessments (JWA), the Army Expeditionary Warrior Experiment (AEWE), the Joint Users Interoperability Communications Exercise (JUICE) and Network Integration Experiment (NIE).

“Immersive Wisdom and Entegra Systems are partnered to develop groundbreaking solutions which provide enhanced situational understanding, facilitate global collaboration and data visualization, speed analysis of complex data, and inform the decision-making process for our Government customers,” said Michael Appelbaum, CEO of Immersive Wisdom.  “Cyber Quest provided a unique environment for meaningful collaboration between warfighters and technologists which enabled us to deliver a capability that was tactically useful and offered a view into the future of battle planning and management,” said Dean Johnson, CEO of Entegra Systems. 

“Entegra Systems and Immersive Wisdom performed brilliantly during the Cyber Quest 2018 exercise. The team worked hand-in-hand with our soldiers to deliver a highly relevant and meaningful Virtual Reality-based operations center and view of the battlespace. These capabilities could be of great benefit to future U.S. Army forces and should be further explored through other Army experimentation efforts” said MAJ Jason Broderick, Australian Exchange Officer assigned to the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence, Cyber Battle Lab, the Technology Integration lead for Cyber Quest 2018.
