The federal government is putting in $7.6 million to support a $19-million project that will help design and develop training and simulation products for use in aerospace and defence. The repayable investment being made through the Strategic Innovation Fund will be provided to Bluedrop Performance Learning Inc., a company that provides simulation technology, simulators and training programs to these sectors. The funds will help the company incorporate gaming and mobile technologies, such as virtual reality and augmented reality, to improve the use of artificial intelligence in its products. The government support will create or maintain more than 200 jobs, and help improve cost-effective training systems for the safety of air and marine crews. Bluedrop Training and Simulation Inc., a division of Bluedrop Performance Learning, was founded in 2012 and is based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, but the project will be based at its location in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
