Much training goes into being a soldier, but did you know that includes virtual simulation?
Quantum3D is one of the leading developers and manufacturers of real-time visual simulation computing systems. Founded in 1997, they’ve set out to develop 3D graphics solutions that would change the face for applications which require high-end imagery.
Quantum3D's corporate office is in San Jose, Calif., however, the company has an Orlando office located in Central Florida Research Park.
Today, Quantum3D delivers the hard drive and software necessary to provide customers with industry specific real-time visual simulation for fast-jet, helicopter, refueling and ground vehicles as well as synthetic environment creation and man-wearable applications.
At this year's Otronicon, Quantum 3D will display ExpeditionDI, a training system which is currently being used by the U.S. Army! ExpeditionDI is the first man-worn, fully immersive, turn-key team simulation solution for infantry simulation and training. It provides an open architecture platform for integrating simulation and game software.
The system is an untethered virtual training system for infantry training mission rehearsal and can operate in any location. It can be used for individual or coordinated squad training and can be wirelessly networked into large scale joint training operations. Quantum3D also integrated innovative technologies such as motion trackers, a Head Mounted Display (HUD) and tactical visual computers.
