Engenuity Brings Next Generation Simulation Technology to Lockheed Martin Unit

World's largest defense contractor to use Engenuity's AI.implant solution for custom simulation systems development

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 4, 2006) - Engenuity Technologies Inc. (TSX:EGY), a leading provider of solutions for the development of high-end visualization and simulation applications, today announced that Lockheed Martin Simulation, Training and Support ("Lockheed Martin") selected Engenuity's AI.implant to bring enhanced realism and intelligence to their modeling, simulation and mission rehearsal tools for military and civilian applications.

Originally designed for the games and entertainment industries to rapidly create characters with realistic intelligent behaviors, AI.implant will enable Lockheed Martin to develop life-like scenarios for the Virtual Combat Convoy Trainer (VCCT) including simulated human and crowd activities.

The Lockheed Martin VCCT is used by the U.S. Army, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Air Force and was developed to improve a convoy crew's ability to identify and react to threats in the contemporary operating environment. By integrating and customizing the AI.implant technology, Lockheed Martin developers will be able to better create variable and complex AI (Artificial Intelligence) behaviors for a wide range of scenarios involving realistic, real-time character and crowd behaviors, such as urban milling, navigation, panicking and rioting.

"The proper training and preparation of military personnel has become significantly more complex in light of urban military operations and, as a result, simulation technology must evolve," said Patrice Commune, President and Chief Executive Officer, Engenuity Technologies. "Lockheed Martin plays an instrumental role in deploying high-end simulation technology for programs developed across the corporation, and we see their selection of AI.implant as a validation of the relevance and importance of our simulation vision. Through working with industry leaders like LM STS, Engenuity will continue to develop the most powerful tools for Next Generation Simulation and training."
