DON Home Collaboration Visualization The DON in Action
Distributed Observer Network
Remote Collaboration
Each simulation can be viewed by multiple users from a desktop or laptop PC, locally or remotely via the Internet - enabling teams to share data and coordinate efficiently to add value.
Using commercial gaming technology, the DON displays 3D simulations on a user's Mac or PC from anywhere in the world. The DON supports clients running in OS X, Windows, and Linux.

Interactive Capability
Users can interact and communicate within the environment using Voice-over Internet Protocol (VoIP) or text chat. Environments can be loaded on-the-fly and may contain simulation data from various simulation sources.
The DON Collaborative Notes System
Information can be exchanged by highlighting specific objects or attaching time-stamped simulation notes within the simulation. Tethered camera points may be saved to discuss simulation data on a moving object or saved in a stationary position.
