has been operating since 1998. Its founder, Engineer Piero Miceu, has a
twenty-year experience in the aerospace industry where the Simulation is used by
the Air Force. At the
end of the ‘90s the Simulation technology, or Virtual Reality, begins to be
affordable also for users that are not inclined to invest extremely large
amounts of money on military applications. The stabilization of this trend is
decisive in the decision of investing in the “civilian” market.
founder gathers a group of enthusiastic specialists that share the same goal:
the development of Virtual Reality projects with a clearly technical
orientation, but without disdaining multimedia projects.
Arsenal strategy and know-how
The Arsenal strategy has been, and still is, to finance the research and the
development of its Virtual Reality tools with more popular activities based on
computer graphics, as multimedia and web. This path, even though difficult but
pursued tenaciously, enabled the company to realize a series of Virtual Reality
projects that now allow to clearly distinguish the Arsenal profile, that is its
technological and scientific character, outdistancing it from a large group of
firms that offer their products generically on the market of computer graphics
realization of a development platform and other software tools, that now allow
the complete control of the technologies involved, was essential in this
constant up-to-date knowledge of the graphics processors’ technology,
indispensable to always obtain the best performance in the real-time rendering,
critical aspect of the Virtual Reality, is as much important.
that Arsenal acquired is that of programming with the highest attention to the
human perception factors: in fact, the real-time rendering, that uses hardware
resources intensively, imposes economy on the complexity of graphic contents and
therefore stimulates the research of simplified and efficient
integrates its know-how with the cooperation of the local University for the
Psychology of Perception, a very relevant factor for every aspect of the HCI
(Human- Computer Interface) and the Usability involved in the Virtual Reality.
The Arsenal activities are carried out according
to the rules of Quality Systems applicable to its process and with the Project
Management tools for the planning and control; both disciplines were experienced
in the industrial past of the founders.
