Harena Data introduces its new ‘COGNISAT’ cognitive Virtual Reality analytics platform

In Virtual Reality News

July 8, 2021 – Harena Data, an esports community aggregator, has recently revealed its new cognitive analytics platform ‘COGNISAT’. The platform combines sport specific virtual reality- (VR) based analytics with video game metrics from GYO Score (an esports and gaming data analytics platform) and computer-based soft skill cognitive metrics and performance profiling into a common data set.

According to the company, the data set provides a comprehensive cognitive view of a traditional or virtual athlete and helps athletes, recruiters and coaches to better understand the athlete today, provides tools to improve cognitive performance using the virtual world and the real world, provides insights into team management, and identifies cognitive areas most damaged by injury or setback for athletes in rehabilitation.

“COGNISAT is Moneyball on steroids for all sports, virtual or traditional, at an extremely affordable price point, that will become more and more powerful the more athletes use it. It’s an advanced analytic and learning machine that analyzes athletes and empowers them to become better using the best systems available in both traditional and virtual worlds,” said Derek Pew, CEO at Harena Data. “We envision COGNISAT replacing many traditional assessment tools used in youth development, college recruitment and employment recruitment of scholar athletes.”

Harena Data stated that COGNISAT is now available to license to colleges, universities, professional sports teams, esports teams, youth development organizations, sports leagues, and other interested parties.

The company noted the following required and recommended hardware specifications for its COGNISAT platform:


  • Tracked motion controllers

Recommended specs:

  • OS: Windows 10 (64bit)
  • Processor: Intel Core i7 Skylake or equivalent
