The world is talking about the metaverse. Big tech firms such as Meta (formerly facebook) have shifted their entire focus on the metaverse. However, contrary to popular belief, groups involved with metaverse projects are talking about different metaverse. 

For instance, Second Life, a computer game, has created an enduring community of millions who reside together in virtual spaces. Then there are commercial metaverses that are purely developed for the commercial or entertainment purposes. Usually, they are based on some kind of fantasy. Besides, in the future it is quite likely that enterprises will create different digital environments for specialized purposes.

On the other hand, in a completely different way, the U.S Military is building a metaverse that manages its operations efficiently. The U.S Army is on top of its game when it comes to cloud supported scalable metaverse. They started working on their Synthetic Training Environment in 2017. Their aim with STE is to change all kinds of legacy simulation programs and incorporate different systems into single for combined arms and joint training. 

Ther server-based approaches and STE follow two different approaches. The traditional servers didn’t have support terrain while cloud scalability allows for a better real-world representation of such crucial details. The purpose of STE is to take the available data and render millions of stimulated entities like AI-based vehicles. 

Even though the STE has advanced terrain rendering, is large scale and facilitates ease of use, it isn’t a model based on popular metaverse concept. The reason being that the Army has developed it keeping in mind certain goals. The STE helps soldiers to train better, experiment with systems and rehearse missions. The large sections of the earth needs to be adequately represented for fulfilling these goals. This is why developers are building a digital twin of the plant which renders a high-fidelity.
