NATO Commissions Mobile/PC Game to Support Maritime Interdiction Operations

on November 27, 2011 12:30 PM

Caspian Learning is currently developing a game commissioned by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization in order to provide training and collaborative learning, improving the effectiveness of personnel during real maritime interdiction operations.

The game, titled “Borders Ahoy” (someone has a sense of humor) is being developed for deployment on PC and on the web as part of Nato’s Nexus virtual world, and also on the iPhone and Android platform. It uses the already successful military simulation software VBSWorlds by Bohemia Interactive Studio (that developed the ARMA series, Operation Flashpoint and Take On Helicopters) and Caspian Learning.

According to a press release published today, the game will include the same content and experience on all platforms, and a demo of the mobile version will be playable at I/ITSEC (Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference ) starting tomorrow, at the Bohemia Interactive stand.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
