The founder of Gnosys was a member of Bolt, Beranek and Newman's original SIMNET team that researched and developed the first low-cost networked virtual simulation. He later had a leading role on the team for the design and implementation of the first commercialized networked virtual simulation technology - the Leopard II Tactical Tank Trainer (AGPT). From its inception in 1992, Gnosys has extended this work in researching and developing a series of systems and games that cultivate team spirit, decision-making and mission rehearsal.
Currently, Gnosys is researching and developing a tool that helps analyze geographic, cultural, political and economic factors and modulates simulated human behavior based on this analysis.
