Simulation exec calls for shared Web sites

The chief executive of a flight simulation company advocates creating Web sites on which contractors and military agencies can exchange information daily and receive progress updates via e-mail.

'We need to promote the free flow of information within the defense industrial base,' said James R. Oyler, president and CEO of Evans & Sutherland Computer Corp. in Salt Lake City. 'We should increase the information flow, not decrease it.'

Evans & Sutherland makes hardware and software that creates realistic 3-D images for full-flight simulators used by the Federal Aviation Administration and other agencies.

Oyler was a keynote speaker at the recent Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference in Orlando, Fla.
