|Who We Are
IST is an internationally recognized research
institute that focuses on advancing human-centered modeling
and simulation technology and increasing
our understanding of simulation's role
in training and education. The institute in 2012 celebrated 30 years of M&S research achievement.

training community. Faculty and staff are distributed among IST's three
Central Florida Research Park buildings,
