UCF’s Institute for Simulation and Training and RDECOM STTC plan to expand their existing facilities to include a cultural awareness lab, virtual world research center, medical modeling and simulation research lab and a super-computer research lab.
The loud booms coming from the Presidio of Monterey on Friday will likely be an antiterrorism exercise.
The exercise is scheduled through the day, and the High Street gate will be closed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., according to officials from the Defense Language Institute and the Presidio of Monterey.
Simulated explosions may be heard and emergency vehicles may be on site, but all are part of the exercise, said Daisy Bueno, a public affairs officer for the Presidio.
Normal operations should not be affected and offices will remain open during normal business hours.
