Introducing the New and Improved Visual Purple

We are proud of our 17 years in the simulation and training industry. We’ve enjoyed supporting Intelligence Community clients as well as many other client types. But as a company evolves so does the internet presence and other related marketing that goes along with it. After much work, we are pleased to introduce you to the new Visual Purple website design at www.visualpurple.com. We have reinvented ourselves with a new company logo, website and training/educational capabilities.

We’ll admit that we haven’t been that great at staying in touch, but that’s all about to change. Training must also adapt to the ever-changing technologically advanced world that we live in.

Welcome to the Next-Generation of Training and Education! Among the more notable updates in our simulation technology are:
• Gamification elements
• Ability to train or learn anytime, anywhere with the ability to engage on an iOS or Android tablet, Windows, Mac and additionally Visual Purple Smart Sims are optimized for iPhone and Android smartphones
• World class game engine graphics – Unreal 4
• More realistic 3D graphics

Our business focus has gravitated to:
• Strong presence in the nuclear simulation arena
• Migrating Smart Sims to different languages/cultures: Localization

But before we get too far ahead of ourselves let us explain why our training focus changed. The date was March 11th, 2011 and a 9.0 magnitude earthquake took place near the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant. A tsunami occurred, and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster ensued which resulted in a nuclear meltdown of three of the plant’s six nuclear reactors. This event hit close to home for us here at Visual Purple as we enjoy a beautiful location on the Central Coast of California, just miles from Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant. Known as the largest nuclear incident since the Chernobyl Disaster of 1986, the Fukushima disaster could have easily been prevented. After investigation, the Fukushima Nuclear Accident Independent Investigation Commission found that the nuclear disaster was ‘manmade’, thus all of its direct causes were foreseeable. Since 2011, we have made it Visual Purple’s mission to bring new levels of safety and learning to the Nuclear Energy community. Our hope is that through our mission critical training we can provide defense in depth against the unimaginable.
