Culver City, CA (24 March 2015) — SCALABLE Network Technologies, Inc. (SCALABLE), a leader in wireless network design and optimization tools, announced today that Mr. Lloyd Wihl, Director of Technical Sales at SCALABLE, will be presenting, “Training for the Combined Cyber/Kinetic Battlefield” on Wednesday 1 April 2015 at the MODSIM World Conference & Expo in Virginia Beach, VA. The paper presents a new simulation approach that integrates real and simulated cyberspace operations, wired and wireless virtual networks, live and virtual equipment and applications, and traditional kinetic warfare training simulators into a full, instrumented synthetic cyber warfare training environment.
“Training humans to recognize cyber-attacks and respond rapidly and effectively is imperative, because mistakes have immediate consequences. The ever-evolving complexity of the combined cyber / kinetic battlefield drives a need to simulate engagements in high fidelity where each domain affects the other,” explains Mr. Lloyd Wihl. “In response to these challenges, SCALABLE has developed Network Defense Trainer, a system which allows cyber, network administrators and command and staff to train as they fight, which improves their awareness, reaction time and ability to take corrective action to work through a degraded cyber environment and successfully complete a mission.”
“We are excited to be participating at MODSIM World for the first time,” said Jim Zierick, SCALABLE’s CEO. “This is an important event for the modeling and simulation community and presenting our unique approach to training will help us demonstrate a new and effective system to the defense sector and those responsible for homeland security.”
Mr. Lloyd Wihl has over 30 years of experience in the Modeling, Simulation and Training industry. He developed system architectures for military simulation and training, and has led multi-million dollar projects in the areas of synthetic environments, network-centric systems, distributed mission training, air traffic management, space systems, visual systems, and flight simulation. He had the vision for, and guided the development of SCALABLE’s new cyber warfare training system, the first live-virtual-constructive cyber training system in the world. Mr. Wihl graduated with distinction in Engineering from McGill University.
