Pitch is actively involved in standards development, like HLA 4, Space Reference FOM and Realtime Platform Reference FOM 3. We continuously share insights into these standards at conferences, seminars and papers. We have just uploaded our latest papers on topics like “New object modeling opportunities in HLA 4”, “Developing Space Reference FOM Federation Agreements” and “Lessons Learned from Distributing Video over an HLA Backbone”. To download your free copies, visit the Pitch Technologies papers web page.

Here is a summary of some of the most important demos that we gave at I/ITSEC 2018. Please contact Pitch or our distributors if you want more information.
Communications training using Pitch Talk which is now the foundation of Bohemia Interactive Simulations’ VBS Radio. You can now interoperate between your simulations and VBS using Pitch Talk; Build your own Pitch Talk clients; Develop and plug in advanced radio effect simulations using our brand-new Effects Architecture; Experience using Pitch Talk for automated tactical ...

LVC Interoperability 101
Damon Curry from Pitch will present LVC interoperability 101 on Monday the 26th of Nov at 12:45 in room S-320C (third floor, above the exhibit hall). The tutorial is intended for decision makers who have recently started work in the area of distributed simulation and need a top-level understanding of Live, Virtual and Constructive (LVC) interoperability and supporting standards, technologies, and processes. Highly recommended for ...
Masa Group and Pitch Technologies, two specialists in COTS simulation products, join forces to launch an integrated solution for constructive training. It is based on their respective products, the MASA Group SWORD and Pitch Technologies´ Pitch Talk, Pitch Recorder and Pitch pRTI. This integrated solution, offers users, a constructive simulation, a communications simulation with voice and text, as well as a fully synchronized after action review capability.
MASA SWORD is a complete wargame solution with automated forces powered by Artificial Intelligence for ...
Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim), a global developer of advanced military simulation and training software, announced today that it has reached an agreement with Pitch Technologies, a leading supplier of commercial tools and services to the modelling and simulation community, to bundle Pitch Talk with BISim’s desktop training software products starting with VBS3. VBS Radio and VBS Radio Pro will be upgraded to use Pitch Talk as the underlying technology, and a separate, stand-alone variant will also be available. All existing VBS3 ...
Pitch Booster interconnects simulations at different sites, through firewalls (authorized by network security, of course), and over slow or unreliable communication links. Version 2.3 adds new features, especially for power users:
Secure remote administration,
Additional configuration controls for IPv4/IPv6, port settings, etc.,
Shareable enterprise configuration does not expose the configuration of internal networks, and
New instrumentation to monitor and tune data flow.
Fifteen 4K HD videos, streaming at 60 Hertz frame rate, carried over HLA via Pitch Media Streamer and recorded in realtime by Pitch Recorder, in a test Control Room/AAR/Debrief rig.
After 40 minutes, Pitch Recorder had saved 190 gigabytes of video.
The image (left) shows a similar application. For security reasons, Pitch's customer did not allow photographs to be taken of their site and its HLA-based video capture and replay system.
Pitch is proud to announce Pitch Talk version 3.0. Building on the success of Pitch Talk 2, currently in use in major international projects, many new features are added:
Develop customized clients using the new Client SDK for C++ and Java
Interoperate with third party DIS radios using the new RPR/DIS Gateway
Define radio channels with both free and preset frequencies
Add configurable noise levels to communication channels
Improved security in the web-based administration

Our recent papers from the January 2018 SISO workshop are now available on our Papers page.
The paper "Improving Tactical Data Link Simulation Standards To Better Support LVC Exercises" discusses how current standards should be updated to better support the simulation requirements of flight simulation sites and improve interoperability with other simulation sites while maintaining interoperability with real Tactical Data Link networks.
The paper "Design and Principles Enabling the Space Reference FOM" presents the key features and design patterns of the ...
At the conference and exhibition on "Training and Training Resources for Air Mobility Operations" hosted by the German Army in Celle, Germany, Telespazio VEGA Deutschland successfully demonstrated the interoperability of their existing Cockpit Procedure Trainer (CPT) for the CH-53GA helicopter of the German Air Force with Virtual Battlespace (VBS3).
By using Pitch Technologies pRTI and Developer Studio C++ to implement an HLA interface for the CPT, the simulator communicates with VBS3 Gateway according to SISO RPR 2.O FOM. Using that technology German ...
