Esperient-PTAV Incorporated is a small company that invents, designs and develops breakthrough products and services for our customers in industry, education and government. We build products and services to help people discover insights into complex systems, manage complex projects and create learning materials to teach new skills.

The company was founded by an interdisciplinary group of artists, scientists and engineers, with skills in animation, art, life sciences, mechanics, media, physics, mathematics, software development, system engineering, and storytelling. Our projects range from creating innovative algorithms to video games, designing animations to sensor networks, building authoring tools to interactive 3D virtual worlds. Products and services we have designed are in use in over 50 countries.

Our area of specialty is creating innovative simulation, modeling and visualization technologies for diverse domain requirements to solve real world problems. Our technologies, products and services help people discover information and build skills to improve lives.

  • • Simulation based discovery helps animators, city planners, designers, engineers, researchers, scientists and technologists gain understanding of complex systems enabling innovation and solution creation.
