GL Studio Puts Simulators On The Desktop - page 2
Sophisticated Desktop Environments
DiSTI, based in Orlando, was born out of the University of Central Florida's Technology Incubator program. The business wanted to provide networked and ultra realistic, high-quality visual simulation tools, to support military and commercial markets.
Today, 95% of DiSTI's revenue is generated by Department of Defense (DoD) military training projects, although the company has started crossing over into the commercial/private sector. GL Studio customers include the FAA, NASA, the US Army, the US Navy, Lockheed-Martin, and others.
In 1997/98 an A10 flight simulator was the company's first contract. It was funded by Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) dollars. An A10 multi-window display demo for Linux based machines, that lets you click buttons and spin dials, can be downloaded in .tgz format.
DiSTI now has 240 customers with 400 users. They've seen growth of about 150% in the last two years.
