Pitch Unreal Engine Connector

Pitch Unreal Engine Connector connects the Epic Games Unreal Engine with the HLA and DIS interoperability standards.

This enables customers in the aerospace and defense simulation industry to seamlessly integrate current and future simulations with cutting-edge game technology. It also opens opportunities for Unreal developers to effortlessly integrate with the open-standards-based modeling and simulation ecosystem. Pitch’s standards-based infrastructure provides an open, distributed, high-performing, scalable and secure solution.

Sample applications include military commanders viewing a tactical picture of the battlefield, and astronauts and pilots training in simulators with highly detailed 3D out-the-window scenes visualized and rendered in Unreal.
