Mumbai based Core Projects and Technology is bringing a NASA-developed technology for Indian students.
Core has partnered with the NASA-promoted Centre for Higher Learning (CHL) based in NASA's Stennis Space Centre. Under the collaboration, Core would use CHL's CAVE technology which uses an interactive 3D interactive virtual environment, to produce educational software for Indian educational institutions. While NASA will use CAVE to train its astronauts to get acclimatised to extra-terrestrial environment. Core is talking with several state governments including Maharashtra and Gujarat and technical institutions to set up virtualisation labs in their campuses. Core will invest $5 million over the next 5 years in this project.
