Engenuity's AI.implant is Selected to Enhance OneSAF'R' Capabilities

Engenuity to bring complex, scalable artificial intelligence to urban simulations for OneSAF

ORLANDO, FLORIDA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 05, 2006) - Engenuity Technologies Inc. (TSX:EGY), a leading provider of solutions for the development of high-end visualization and simulation applications, today announced that Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) in conjunction with the US Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training & Instrumentation (PEO STRI), and United States Joint Forces Command (USJFCOM), has combined Engenuity's AI.implant with OneSAF (One Semi-Automated Forces) to bring enhanced realism and efficiency to military simulations.

AI.implant's unique ability to produce scalable, behaviorally realistic crowds is an essential enhancement when creating simulations for Joint Urban Operations (JUO) scenarios. AI.implant compliments OneSAF's existing military artificial intelligence (AI) components with new functionalities such as non-doctrinal behavior and visual brain authoring for a large number of non-combatants.

OneSAF simulation technology and tools provide an integrated approach to simulation. It enables the Army and U.S. Marine Corps (USMC) to create a virtually limitless variety of computer-generated environments, military units, individual entities, behaviors, and scenarios to meet their diverse needs. SAIC's integration of the AI.implant technology brings real-world crowds, riots, and panicking to the simulated environment as a means of better preparing troops for engagements in conflict zones.

"Engenuity's AI.implant helps OneSAF continue to push the technology envelope in the military training and simulation arena," said Dr. Paul Kruszewski, chief technology officer, Engenuity Technologies. "We are very excited to be part of this major initiative. AI.implant's pedigree as a proven game technology and its agile and disruptive AI framework makes it a perfect fit for next generation simulation projects such as OneSAF."

The integration of AI.implant into OneSAF will be demonstrated in both the SAIC and USJFCOM booths at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC), in Orlando, Florida on December 4 - 7, 2006.
