Destineer announced that is has signed a strategic development agreement with In-Q-Tel, a private venture group funded by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Here's more from the press release:

Destineer develops and publishes 3-D games for personal computers and videogame consoles. Its first internally-developed game, Close Combat: First to Fight, was created with the help of more than 40 active-duty United States Marines and is based on their recent combat experiences.

“We create highly realistic, action-oriented training simulations that provide unique gaming experiences,“ said Destineer President, Peter Tamte. “Our partnership with In-Q-Tel will enhance our technology and expand the work we do with the federal government.”

“Destineer’s technology offers unique gaming simulation capabilities," said Gilman Louie, President and CEO of In-Q-Tel. “In-Q-Tel is very pleased with its partnership with Destineer and their promise of significant developments in simulation training that will enhance security readiness for the Intelligence Community."
In-Q-Tel was established in 1999 to identify and deliver transformative technologies to the CIA and the Intelligence Community. In-Q-Tel’s mission is to identify and help solve some of the toughest challenges faced by the Central Intelligence Agency and the Intelligence Community. The company leverages the creativity of the private sector, academia and national labs to seize new opportunities, to see problems differently, and to solve them in new ways.
