Hadean has teamed up with Microsoft Azure to provide cloud-enabled training and simulation for defense and intelligence work in the UK.
The companies plan to provide the defense industrial base with scalable, interoperable and secure cloud-based military training technology.
Hadean aims to integrate its “metaverse” infrastructure with Microsoft Azure to produce custom and robust solutions that can deliver real-time data to government agencies, defense contractors and the armed forces around the world. I asked what Hadean thinks of critics who say working for defense and intelligence purposes is unethical. I’ll update the story when they reply.
“Microsoft is a trusted defense and intelligence partner with a track record of delivering secure cloud services that empower systems integrators and transform capabilities to meet the demands of the modern military,” said Craig Beddis, CEO of Hadean. a statement. “We are excited to deepen our relationship with a new partnership and combine our expertise to push the boundaries of what is possible with cloud computing, enhance Microsoft Azure, and pioneer military training and simulation capabilities.”
Hadean and Microsoft have already teamed up to build, run and deliver a cloud-based distributed simulation to the British Army Collective Training Transformation Program (CTTP). It will be demonstrated on set at the I/ITSEC 2022 Innovation Center on November 30 at 11:20am GMT.
“Working closely with innovative technology vendors is a critical way we bring new capabilities to defense and intelligence missions,” said Gus MacGregor-Millar, general manager of global defense and intelligence at Microsoft, in a statement. “Having supported Hadean in its early years of growth through the Microsoft for Start-Ups program, we are excited to continue working with them to help allied defense customers realize the full potential of cloud-based training and simulation solutions and increase mission impact achievable through next-generation capabilities.”
Founded in 2015, Hadean aims to provide the infrastructure and computing power needed to realize the full potential of the metaverse. Hadean also partners with Minecraft, Epic Games, Sony, Gamescoin, Pixelynx, CAE, BAE Systems, Thales, and Microsoft’s Francis Crick Institute.
