Modeling and Simulation


DS2 has developed a modeling and simulation framework for rapid and cost effective development of simulation-based applications for entertainment, training, and educational purposes. We provide complete systems for Virtual Reality (VR) and Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) simulations involving real people operating simulated systems while providing constructive control inputs for supporting nondeterministic outcomes. Our framework is built upon the Unity engine providing a common core for graphics rendering, real-world physics, sound, and navigation. Combined with Oculus VR headsets, our framework delivers top-quality virtual environments to meet our defense customers' requirements for military training and simulation needs.

DS2 provides tools and support for modeling and analysis including:

  • 2D and 3D Simulation-based Training

  • Virtual Asset Object Model Libraries

  • Geospatially Accurate Virtual Environments

  • Business Process and Behavior Modeling

  • Live, Virtual, and Constructive (LVC) Simulations

3D Exploration, Modeling, and Analysis


Within any 3D model, physical behavior within the virtual environment is an important aspect for simulation as objects must accelerate correctly and display realistic visual effects of collisions, gravity, and other forces. DS2’s Modeling and Simulation framework handles these behaviors and provides accurate interactions of real-world objects within the virtual environment.

DS2 engineers also have expertise in Geospatial Information Solution (GIS) technology and have integrated it with Building Information Model (BIM) and sensor technologies to provide accurate 3D web-enabled views for situational awareness for emergency first responders. In addition, DS2 has developed solutions that immerse live video camera feeds into these 3D exploration and modeling solutions to provide a singular solution to visualization and analysis.

We have extensive experience with 3D frameworks, APIs, and SDKs including:

  • Unity - Cross-platform, real-time 3D engine with applications ranging from games and cinematics to virtual reality, simulations, and more

  • ArcGIS Runtime SDK for .NET and ArcGIS Pro SDK for .NET - 3D mapping for realistic views of the world

  • ArcGIS API for JavaScript - Esri's next-generation JavaScript API for building 3D Web Apps

  • Autodesk 3ds Max - Industry-standard software for creating 3D models in anything, from movies and games to architectural renderings and complex simulations

We have vast experience developing with 3D software and hardware platforms to provide modeling and simulation applications for:

  • Oculus Rift, Rift S, Quest, and Quest 2

  • Samsung Gear VR

  • Google Cardboard / Daydream

2D Modeling and Simulations


DS2 has developed techniques, strategies, and tools in designing simulated learning experiences that allow engineers to practice and test their knowledge, skills, and behaviors for scenario based training exercises. These virtual reality training simulations provide an immersive training environment for the management of the airfield recovery activities (Rapid Damage Assessment (RDA), Rapid Explosive Hazard Mitigation (REHM), Rapid Damage Repair (RDR), and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD)). Virtual reality simulations provide engineers with realistic 2D/3D geospatially accurate airfield environments and airfield damage repair situations. For example, scenario simulations have been designed for damage mitigation and crater repair techniques for ADR teams. These simulations are used as a measurement tool that target certain learning objectives and ADR teamwork competencies. These frameworks can be easily adapted to your common business process.


DS2 provides accurate modeling and computer simulations that are currently in-use for:

  • Airfield Damage Repair (ADR) Simulator

  • Installation Recovery After Attack (IRAA)

  • Enterprise Resource Information System (ERIS)

  • Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD)
