Orange County Government’s annual Florida Simulation Summit highlights the region’s multibillion-dollar Modeling, Simulation and Training (MS&T) industry. This year, the event focused on cybersecurity and how the region can utilize the digital twin model – making virtual replicas of physical devices that can be uses to run simulations before actual devices are built and deployed – to tackle present and future challenges.
Here are three key takeaways from the 2021 Florida Simulation Summit:
A long-time hub for defense, the Central Florida region has successfully diversified its MS&T industry into clusters for life sciences, healthcare, sports, gaming and engineering.
“Our region is recognized as the epicenter for MS&T, which has a huge impact on our local economy,” said Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings during his opening remarks at the summit. “Our simulation industry is the envy of many other regions around the world, which is one reason we work diligently to retain talent and foster growth.”
