Game Production Services(GPS) is a developer of serious games and immersive mixed-reality environments for education, training, and marketing. GPS produces computer-based serious games for individual and group learning, as well as immersive environments combining physical and virtual elements.

The company was founded in 2003 by game-industry veteran Glyn Anderson, and engineer and software company manager, Janeen Anderson in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

GPS creates Location-based Immersive Virtual Experience (LIVE) training simulations, such as the Infantry Immersive Trainer and Joint Fires & Effects Trainer System (JFETS)[1], [2] primarily for the U.S. military.

The company's Multifunction Dome is the largest commercially available rear projection dome. It lets people experience almost any situation for training or entertainment purposes by immersing them in an environment that combines a Hollywood-style set and realistic props, such as functioning, simulated instruments, along with projected high-resolution images. The first dome will be in operation at Ft. Sill, Okla., in early 2010. It will be used by the U.S. Army Air Defense Artillery School for immersive training of Stinger missile crews and forward observers, as well as for mission rehearsal and other purposes.Other possible applications for the dome include training for air traffic controllers, unmanned aerial systems pilot training, as well as applications for the entertainment industry and amusement parks.
