Connect virtually with RTDS users around the globe

What to Expect

The User Spotlight Series is a webinar-based event that showcases the work of RTDS Simulator Users worldwide every week starting September 2020. Webinars will include two 20-minute presentations from users, followed by a live Q&A, plus commentary from RTDS Technologies. Adapted from our popular in-person User’s Group Meetings, the virtual User Spotlight Series is your opportunity to hear user success stories, learn about their challenges, and explore new applications.

Can’t make a webinar? No problem. All webinars will be available on-demand after they air.
Simply register in advance to watch the recording and receive the materials.

Please note: Webinars are pre-recorded, but the Q&As are held live!
