SAN FRANCISCO, May 21 (UPI) -- A U.S. simulation and 3D visualization technology company has signed a licensing deal with Kongsberg, a Norwegian defense and aerospace company.

Under the agreement, Kongberg will use Havok's simulation technologies in the development of immersive simulation training systems .

Among the 3-D systems to be leveraged are Havok Vision Engine, Havok Physics, Havok Destruction, Havok Animation, Havok AI, and Havok Script.

"Kongsberg is a veteran defense and aerospace contractor driven by their dedication to develop best-in-class solutions for their clients and diligent in their third party technology acquisitions," said Cory Kumm, director of Military & Simulation at Havok.
