Software Engineering Internship
ABOUT NAR Simulation
Our mission is to develop and produce realistic training tools that provide the realism demanded by our military and emergency medical clients. In addition to the realism, true training tools need to be a complement to training exercises, not a piece that demand time and attention. Training sessions are effective, both in cost and in educational value, when they can be repeated with minimal interruption – they must serve the greatest number for the greatest amount of time.
