Smackdown Demonstrations were presented to ITEC in May 22 and 23 providing a presentation of the Initiative, distributed real time simulation and an interactive Virtual World
, based on Unity and developed in
Kennedy Space Center, proposing the Telemetry of previous simulation
runs carried out in
Spingsim San Diego and other tests.
As anticipated, the demonstration included live real-time simulation distributed among different sites including
NASA Johnshon Space Center in Houston,
Genoa Labs and
MIT in Boston with several federates dynamically interacting in the Moon Base simulation.
Genoa University in Internship on
NATO STO CMRE and

MAST, carried out the presentations; indeed they are two young engineers part of the development team for the Space Interceptor
(Iphitos Spaceguard) devoted to protect the Moon Base as SpaceGuard System against Asteroids and Debris; they served as speakers and operators of the Smackdown Simulation.

(i.e. Agostino Bruzzone,
President of Simulation Team) and Sponsor Industries
(i.e.Bjorn Moller, Vice President of Pitch Technologies) provided an overview of the benefits of this initiatives; the Smackdown at ITEC2013 involved also speeches from Simulation Societies such as
Vice President of MIMOS).
The event was organized with the support of
