‘GO’ Platform

GO brings high-fidelity, immersive training environments to any Windows computer through a web browser. Central access to GO’s training modules via the web is easy and training content and records are always up-to-date. GO can be hosted on your IT infrastructure or by Applied Research Associates, Inc.

GO is a single/multi-player immersive training and education platform based on Epic Games’ Unreal® Engine 3. GO consists of a series of ActiveX/Netscape plug-ins that contain the Unreal Engine connected to backend computer server infrastructure. Content released on the GO platform is accessed via a web server that provides pages containing content plug-ins as well as an interface to access specific training applications, as authorized by the user database. A sample plug-in is available to allow visitors to meet and converse in a 3D showcase environment and provides a way for users to navigate to other training environments. Browsers currently supported are: Internet Explorer 8 and 9, Firefox 3 and 4, Chrome, Opera.
