Orlando Is the Theme Park Capital of the World and the Next Silicon Valley

Businesses are leaving Silicon Valley and looking for other cities to build their empires. Why you may ask? Silicon Valley is located in Southern California where the living expenses are incredibly high. The average median rent for a two-bedroom apartment according to Forbes is $3,080. This can mean expensive overhead for those with business offices. According to Forbes, California has an 8.84% corporate tax, which is one of the highest in the United States. Many companies have already started to go elsewhere, including big name companies. In the last year, Tesla has opened a new factory in Reno, Nevada and Google has opened a new campus in Ann Arbor, Michigan. It seems that Silicon Valley has started to lose its’ allure and many tech companies are looking for the next big tech hub.

What is an ECG Simulator?

An ECG Simulator is a platform which mimics patient vital signs. There are many different kinds of ECG Simulators. Some are compact and portable, while others include a full manikin. Read More…

Orlando, The Capital of Simulation and Training

Orlando has a lot more to offer than theme parks!

With major players like Lockheed Martin, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, Cubic, Bohemia and the National Center for Simulation all located within 20 miles from each other, it’s no wonder Orlando is considered the Capital for Simulation and Training in the world. Many of these simulation and training centers are concentrated in Central Florida Research Park (CFRP) located right next to the University of Central Florida (UCF). CFRP is the fourth largest research park and is home to many organizations hosted by the United States Department of Defense, UCF, and private corporations. These organization partner up with the university to give UCF students more opportunities in the cutting-edge field of simulation and modeling while providing a boost to the industry locally. Former UCF President, John C. Hitt stated that the agreement to work with the department of defense was to open broad new frontiers for research and innovation. Read More…
