Gaming Campaign and Gamification
ICF’s modeling, simulation, and gaming team has helped both government and industry maximize the use of gaming technology for their Web 2.0 presence, learning, and training strategies for the 21st century. Our team of experts has used games to tackle difficult issues such as risky AIDS behavior change and helping children to understand the importance of reducing, reusing, and recycling consumption activities for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). ICF uses a proven tailored approach to honing our client’s interests into a thoughtful, engaging, and measurable plan for building gaming and gamification into our client’s content and strategy.
Human Dimension, Irregular Warfare, and Soft Skills Training
ICF has considerable expertise in the design, construction, and validation of testing simulations designed to teach complex human behavior such as influence, negotiation, advanced decision-making, situational awareness, and motivation. We have extensively published and presented in the field of social complexity, developed several advanced immersive online training systems for the Army Knowledge Online (AKO) portal, and maintained a leadership position in advanced virtual world development.
ICF is a leader in U.S. Air Force modeling and simulation. Our team of subject matter experts has helped drive the training curriculum across a variety of logistics learning areas, including Air Combat War Readiness Material Command, the Air Force Expeditionary Center, Installation Deployment Officer Training, and the Areal Port Expeditionary Center.
