Metaverse startup Hadean is set to collaborate with Microsoft and power the digital transformation of the defense industrial base with scalable, interoperable, and secure cloud-based military training capabilities.
Building on an ongoing business relationship, this new agreement will see Hadean’s metaverse infrastructure integrated with Microsoft Azure to produce fit-for-purpose and robust solutions that can rapidly cut through data and deliver impactful outcomes for customers across government agencies, defense contractors and the Armed Forces.
With proven compatibility, Hadean aims to further enhance Microsoft’s value add to customers, accelerate innovation, and empower defense simulation with next-generation cloud-powered solutions for cross-domain integration, rapid data-driven decision making and improved resilience.
“Microsoft is a trusted partner in defense and intelligence with a track-record of delivering secure cloud services that empower system integrators and transform capabilities to meet the requirements of modern militaries,” said Hadean CEO, Craig Beddis. “We’re excited to deepen our relationship with a new collaboration and combine our expertise to push the limit of what is possible with cloud computing, enhance Microsoft Azure and pioneer capabilities for military training and simulation.”
“Working closely with innovative technology providers is a critical way that we bring new capability to defense and intelligence missions,” said Gus MacGregor-Millar, GM, Worldwide Defense & Intelligence, Microsoft. “Having supported Hadean in its early growth years through the Microsoft for Start-Ups program, we are pleased to collaborate further with them to help allied defense customers harness the full potential of cloud-based training and simulation solutions and realize mission impact through next-generation capabilities.”
Hadean and Microsoft have already worked together to build, run, and deliver a cloud distributed simulation to the British Army Collective Training Transformation Program (CTTP), demonstrated at I/ITSEC 2022.
