We focus on five social themes.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
On our TNOTIME platform you can find blogs, interviews and background stories. Discover the field of TNO captured in photographs, animations, video and text. Share interesting articles and powerful infographics, or download whitepapers.
"Using satellite data and other data collected yesterday, we practice today for tomorrow's mission" For TNO, that is the essence of simulation research. By integrating Live, Virtual and Constructive simulations in a smart manner, we create added value in training sessions. Being independent of the weather, the location, available materials and human resources is what creates that added value. Moreover, simulation training is safe and cost-efficient for organisations. Simulation makes it possible to perform types of training that would otherwise be impossible.
TNO is a valued knowledge partner and expert in simulation research. Thanks to our unique and long-term cooperation within NATO and the EU, we are frontrunners in this area of expertise. Close cooperation with government bodies, knowledge institutions and industrial partners enables us to translate ideas into products quickly and effectively. This allows us to guarantee a fast innovation cycle.
Technology develops rapidly in simulation. We anticipate these developments with simulation research and make it possible to rapidly implement innovative ideas for practical issues.
Simulation is an increasingly important resource for Defence and Security. It concerns critical knowledge and is an indispensable technique for training and development purposes. The complexity of contemporary military training and the scarcity of available resources mean an increase in demand for research on the use of simulation in training. TNO applies its knowledge to solve current and pressing issues of clients. We make society more resilient through simulation research.
Modelling and simulation are well-established tools for analysis, design, acquisition and training in the military domain. Simulation research can, of course, also be used in other training domains, such as the police or fire brigade. TNO distinguishes between three different types of simulations:
Live, Virtual and Constructive simulations simulate reality in a smart way. People learn, in simulated training, how to act in real situations. TNO uses simulation research to find the optimal mix of simulations. Simulation research delivers knowledge, methods and instruments for Live, Virtual and Constructive integration, for example techniques for interoperability, validation, synthetic environment and behaviour modelling.
