PALO ALTO, Calif., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MVE Systems, Inc., a Palo Alto-based technology company providing cutting-edge solutions for defense and education institutions, marks its second year of being a recipient of the MP Readers' Choice Corrosion Innovation of the Year Award by the National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE International), alongside companies and individuals whose groundbreaking innovations are recognized to have the most significant impact in reducing the $2.2 trillion global cost of corrosion.
Sponsored by NACE International's monthly magazine Materials Performance, the MP Readers' Choice Awards was launched in September 2011 in recognition of the ten most exciting corrosion innovations worldwide. Receiving two awards in March 2012 were two online applications developed by MVE Systems for the US Department of Defense's Corrosion Policy and Oversight Office (DoD CPO) under contract with The University of Akron: the corrosion training and outreach website CorrConnect, and the corrosion simulation application CorrSim in collaboration with Bruno White Entertainment.
At Monday's awards ceremony in Orlando, MVE received 3 of 10 MP Readers' Choice Awards for three products developed for DOD CPO: CorrSim Junior (with The University of Akron and Orlando Science Center), Engineering Resource Data Management (ERDM), and the Universal Learning Application (ULA).
CorrSim Junior is a Kinect game designed to teach young learners the basics and importance of corrosion. Currently on exhibit at the Orlando Science Center, it is also available at CorrConnect.org and the free e-learning site, EricsHS.com to deliver deep learning in an immersive environment.
Engineering Resource Data Management (ERDM) is an innovative tool for corrosion research built on the industry-standard Google Apps platform. It is designed to enhance and support all aspects of university research -- from initial project proposal to final report. ERDM's main component, MVE Dashboard, is a graphical user interface running on top of Google Apps that gives project stakeholders visibility on ongoing research projects.
Finally, the Universal Learning Application (ULA), renamed the MVE Learning Management System (MVE LMS), is the first LMS that is universal and powerful as it can run on all devices and deliver experiences equal to "AAA" console games. The MVE LMS powers www.CorrConnect.org and www.EricsHS.com.
Isabel Manalac, MVE's CEO, shares: "The vision of MVE Systems is to combine compelling content with cutting-edge technology to create a deep and engaging learning experience for everyone, everywhere."
