About Tech-X Corporation
AN EXCITING TIME
As the millennium drew to a close, many physicists became increasingly excited about the convergence of physics and computer science. Computation was greatly accelerating progress in the field, and Dr. John R. Cary, a professor at the University of Colorado, and his colleagues recognized merging the two fields as an opportunity to apply their research to solve complex real-world problems. As a result, Tech-X Corporation was founded in Boulder, Colorado, in 1994.
The Need for Scalability
Greenfield Implementation Approach Leads to VORPAL
The Launch of VSim
In 2010, in response to growing consumer demand for more user-friendly software, VSim was created. VSim took the powerful VORPAL physics engine and combined it with the VSimComposer graphical-user-interface, allowing users to create physics simulations without the need for manual programming. It was also around this time that customizable “packages” were created for VSim so that users can customize the exact capabilities needed for their work.
USim and RSim
As global sales of VSim grew, Tech-X observed a need for additional products outside of the VSim framework. In 2013 the first version of USim, a charged, multi-fluids simulation application, was sold to consumers. Most recently, Tech-X has released RSim, a product that grew out of a Tech-X collaboration with NASA’s Orion mission. Used to simulate radiation transport, RSim is a user-friendly simulation product with applications from nuclear medicine to astronaut shielding.
