For example, in an Ethernet network, display adapters, hubs, switches and routers from different vendors must conform to the Ethernet standard and interoperate with each other. with the CCTT program enhances the Army's investment in database creation and will allow a smooth and cost-effective transition to Ensemble for the next-generation CCTT systems.
"The completion of final acceptance testing represents a significant accomplishment for both E&S and the U.S. Army," said David Figgins, E&S Simulation Group vice president.
"Successfully completing acceptance testing demonstrates that Ensemble provides outstanding performance and reliability for ground warfare applications. Furthermore, the compatibility and interoperability of the ESIG and Ensemble systems will enable the Army to maximize the value of its investment in both hardware and software."
Ensemble is the first complete, PC-based image generation system. A turnkey hardware and software system, Ensemble represents a significant advancement in visual systems for simulation, providing true, realistic simulation on a PC platform.
