TCAT presents visualization technology to national legislators
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Texas Center for Applied Technology (TCAT) presented an interactive technology display for members of the United States Senate and House of Representatives Feb. 9 in Washington, D.C. TCAT, a center in the Texas Engineering Experiment Station, participated in the demonstration as part of the University XXI Program, a partnership between Texas A&M University, the University of Texas at Austin and the U.S. Army. University XXI focuses on digitization research in support of the U.S. Army's transformation to digital tools and environments. The program leverages the faculty, staff, research engineers and students of both universities in a working partnership with the Army to solve problems and support its operations. The demonstration, which took place in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill, was sponsored by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO-STRI). The Three-Dimensional Terrain Visualization tool has been integrated into the Army?s Analysis and Control Element (ACE) system, the central collection and analysis point for Army intelligence collection sources at the Army division and corps level.
