Muscatatuck Urban Training Center – Muscatatuck, Indiana

Lake Effect Engineering worked as a subconsultant to be a part of the development of Muscatatuck Urban Training Center. The design included miles of fiber optic lines run throughout the campus, tying each of the buildings together, that were used for realtime training with automated triggers in each building. These buildings were then all tied to one main control center on the campus. The environment was staged so that it was realistic to other parts of the world.
