GOV. WARNER TO OFFICIALLY OPEN VMASC BATTLE LAB AT RIBBON CUTTING CEREMONY

Gov. Mark Warner will join Old Dominion University President Roseann Runte in officially opening the Virginia Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Center's (VMASC) Battle Lab at a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday, May 6. Following the ceremony, guests will receive a tour of the facilities and take part in interactive demonstrations.

Located in Suffolk, the VMASC Battle Lab is an innovative computer simulation laboratory designed to provide the advanced modeling and simulation infrastructure to support research in the areas of collaboration, composability, distributed simulation, human-computer interfaces, human factors, simulation methodologies, systems integration, virtual environments and visualization.

Established with a Commonwealth Technology Research Fund grant and matching funds from the university, the Battle Lab contains over $700,000 in computer simulation hardware, has access to more than $3 million of simulation software and provides a framework to link to other academic, government and, eventually, commercial battle lab facilities.

VMASC is an enterprise center of Old Dominion's Batten College of Engineering and Technology.
