Unity Lands $Multi-million US Government Contract For Digital Twins

Work to “advance the development of smart human machine interfaces”

Engine giant Unity has scored a three-year multi-million dollar contract with the US government.

In a release to investors, the company said that it had been given this contract to “advance the development of smart human machine interfaces” by CACI International. That’s an IT company based in Northern Virginia that works with the US government across a variety of different fields, though the language of the deal sounds like it is going to have military applications.

Unity claims that this is the largest ‘digital twin solutions’ deal that the company has made to date.

“Through this relationship, Unity will help the government defining human machine interfaces or HMI for the aerospace applications and beyond,” Unity Create solutions leader Marc Whitten said. “These applications demand an interactive, robust user experience very much like games.”

This isn’t the first time that Unity has had dealings with the US military. Back in August 2021, a Waypoint report claimed staff were unhappy with the company working with the military.
