HATTIESBURG — The University of Southern Mississippi has granted an exclusive license to an international company for multiple pieces of USM proprietary intellectual property to be used in software development to produce custom simulation modeling and training systems for sport stadiums, arenas and other venues.
INCONTROL Simulation Solutions, a Netherlands-based firm, will use the computer-based simulation training system, SportEvac, which can be directly applied in the sport security industry. The system was developed National Center for Spectator Sports Safety and Security (NCS4) at USM through a multi-year research effort.
Chase Kasper, director of the USM Office of Technology Development, which oversees the intellectual property and licensing portfolio for USM, said that the company intends to integrate USM’s system into a segment of INCONTROL’s current products and services.
“INCONTROL is a global leader in crowd management and crowd management control systems,” Kasper said. “We are excited about their capabilities and potential product offerings which will incorporate the by-products of many years of quality research efforts at NCS4. The relationship will create even greater opportunities for USM and INCONTROL in the future.
In July 2013, INCONTROL opened a new office in Hattiesburg, and currently operates out of the Trent Lott National Center for Economic Development and Entrepreneurship on the USM campus.
