The international defense training journal Military Simulation & Training (MS&T) informed us that the professional jury chose Barco Simulation as a 2017 award winner in the ‘Innovation’ category. This marks the second year in a row that we’re receiving the prestigious award!
Excelling in innovation
In its 16th year now, the Industry Simulation & Training Awards, formerly known as the Military Training International’s Top Companies list, recognizes companies that have made significant impacts on the military training industry during the past calendar year. According to the professional jury, Barco Simulation leapfrogged all the other participating companies in the ‘Innovation’ category in 2016 when we launched the F/FS70 and our immersive audio solution for training, Barco AudioCue. In 2017, Barco demonstrated its commitment to the industry by pushing these products further past the launch point and making significant contribution to key training programs.
“I would like to take this opportunity to personally congratulate everyone at Barco on this win, and for the great contributions your company has made to the global military training community,” said Stephen Reed, business manager at Halldale, publishers of the MS&T magazine, upon handing over the award.
Dave Fluegeman, Director of Simulation at Barco, commented: “We’re very proud to have won this award. The capabilities of the F/FS70 represent the best price/performance option in the simulation industry, and have led to several benchmark wins already this year. Our AudioCue system has been receiving rave reviews from end customers, systems integrators, and industry press, and is elevating the awareness of precision audio in the training environment”.
