Training and Simulation

MAK Technologies (MAK), a company of ST Engineering North America Government, is a global leader in modeling and simulation software that links, simulates and visualizes virtual worlds in networked synthetic environments. Continuing a tradition that stretches back almost three decades, our tools are used by the world’s top organizations for training, experimentation, mission rehearsal, research and development, and virtual prototyping. We deliver end-user focused training systems and empower our customers to build on top of our open standards-based COTS platforms to create winning modeling, simulation & training systems.

MAK’s product line, MAK ONE, is an open and modular product suite that can be used in two ways; together to form an integrated training environment, or independently to provide networking, simulation, visualization, and terrain components that fit into your system architecture. MAK ONE is based on open standards, a unified library of content, and includes robust APIs for customization when needed.

MAK’s Training Solutions Division adds system design, integration, testing, and in-house subject matter expertise to our MAK ONE synthetic world, allowing us to develop and deliver trusted training solutions that match our customers’ specific requirements. From the US Army’s Synthetic Training Environment (STE) program, to our 15 year history delivering Command and Staff Trainers (CST) to countries around the world, we deliver training solution success for our customers.

What We Do


MAK's foundation is in simulation network interoperability. Our powerful software toolkits help you connect your simulations together. We help to ensure that your applications are compliant with industry standard interoperability protocols. We provide the tools you need to inter-operate even when your distributed simulations span local or wide area networks or protocol boundaries like such as DIS, HLA & MAK Legion.

The Complete Simulation Solution. VR-Forces is MAK’s complete simulation solution – a powerful and flexible Computer Generated Forces (CGF) platform to fill your multi-domain synthetic environments with urban, battlefield, maritime, airspace, and satellite activity. Whether you need a threat generator for training and mission rehearsal systems, a synthetic environment for experimentation, or an engine to stimulate C4I systems, VR-Forces is powerful enough to get your job done.

VR-Engage is MAK’s multi-role virtual simulator. VR-Engage lets you play the role of a first-person human character; a vehicle driver, gunner or commander; or the pilot of an airplane or helicopter. VR-Engage can be deployed as a trainee simulator, as a role player station, an instructor aid, a desktop simulation game, even as a VR headset experience. Built on mature proven technologies, VR-Engage gets its simulation engine from VR-Forces, and its game-quality 3D graphics from VR-Vantage.

MAK's visualization suite lets you see beautiful visuals from every vantage point.

MAK’s VR-Vantage rendering engine lets you visualize your simulation environment from multiple perspectives. These visual simulation perspectives range from realistic scenes for out-the-window or sensor views for man-in-the-loop training devices, to 3D informational views and tactical map displays for planning and situational awareness, and also to exaggerated reality views for visual analysis.

High-quality high-performance vehicles and human character visualization lets you include machines, people and animals into your visual simulation applications.

Learn more about Visualization


MAK ONE products are terrain agile, which means that they can load the terrain databases you already have in formats such as CDB, OpenFlight/MetaFlight, and many more. MAK ONE includes the MAK Earth terrain engine to procedurally generate whole-Earth terrain directly from geographic source data. We offer VR-TheWorld Server as the solution for managing and serving large quantities of geographic data directly into our MAK Earth enabled applications — bypassing the off-line database build steps. Our simulation and visualization products are loaded with content. We provide useful terrain databases with DI-Guy SDK, VR-Engage, VR-Forces, and VR-Vantage so you can be up and running in short order. We also work with terrain content providers who offer high-quality terrain products off-the-shelf and who provide terrain generation services.
