Building on an ongoing business relationship, the new relationship will see Hadean's metaverse infrastructure integrated with Microsoft Azure to produce fit-for-purpose and robust solutions that can rapidly cut through data and deliver impactful outcomes for customers across government agencies, defence contractors and the Armed Forces.

Hadean and Microsoft have already worked seamlessly together to build, run and deliver a cloud distributed simulation to the British Army Collective Training Transformation Programme (CTTP), set to be demonstrated at the I/ITSEC 2022 Innovation Center tomorrow at 11:20 am.

With proven compatibility, Hadean will further enhance Microsoft's value add to customers, accelerate innovation and empower defence simulation with next-generation cloud-powered solutions for cross-domain integration, rapid data-driven decision making and improved resilience.

Hadean CEO, Craig Beddis, said: "Microsoft is a trusted partner in defence and intelligence with a track-record of delivering secure cloud services that empower system integrators and transform capabilities to meet the requirements of modern militaries. We're excited to deepen our relationship with a new collaboration and combine our expertise to push the limit of what is possible with cloud computing, enhance Microsoft Azure and pioneer capabilities for military training and simulation."

"Working closely with innovative technology providers is a critical way that we bring new capability to defence and intelligence missions," said Gus MacGregor-Millar, GM, Worldwide Defence & Intelligence, Microsoft. "Having supported Hadean in its early growth years through the Microsoft for Start-Ups programme, we are pleased to collaborate further with them to help allied defence customers harness the full potential of cloud-based training and simulation solutions and realise mission impact through next-generation capabilities."
