Solutions and Technologies for Simulation and Critical Systems

Solutions and Technologies for Simulation and Critical Systems - NADS

NADS is a privately held European company established in 2002 that operates into military & aerospace global markets providing innovating solutions of training & simulation, command & control and engineering support services.

Since its inception, NADS has been providing technology and engineering solutions to major European aerospace and military programs. Now, NADS is highly specialized in Training & Simulation as well as Command & Control.

Years ago, as a product of its innovation culture and its accumulated expertise in Training & Simulation, NADS started to develop a Commercial Off the Shelf (COTS) software for simulation and C4ISR markets building its own fully-dedicated R&D department. NADS worked for years jointly with the Spanish Ministry of Defence in the development of our product SIMWARE.

Nowadays, NADS is one of the new challenging leaders of middleware for distributed simulation, having a growing community of users all around the world, participates regularly in key standardization & scientific organizations like OMG, SISO, NATO RTO and has partnership agreements with some of the key industry players.
