Quantum3D Highlights New Augmented Reality Applications as Part of its Growing Suite of Training Solutions
Nov. 21, 2017 – Quantum3D, a leading provider of training and simulation solutions for government and commercial applications, today announced that it will be at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando, Fla. from Nov. 27 to 30 (OCCC South Concourse, booth #1421), showing several new training systems including a jet-engine Maintenance Trainer, an Air Traffic Control training system, a Tactical Planning system, a Command & Control Situational Awareness solution, as well as its renowned series of Image Generators based on MANTIS® including the Independence® IDX 80.
“This year we are excited to show off the compelling power of Augmented Reality technology in new ways that truly transform the training experience,” said Richard Lane, president, Quantum3D, “and this year we’re presenting our widest selection of systems and solutions with applications for all military branches.”
Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality technology will play a key role in several of the systems on display this year. A demonstration of remote maintenance training on an actual full-size NH-90 helicopter turbine jet engine will be shown, which allows the student to be guided via a choice of AR devices including HoloLens, iPad, or iPhone.
Also, a HoloLens-based AR situational awareness system produced by Quantum3D’s parent company HAVELSAN will be shown, allowing either training of, or actual Command & Control of battlefield operations at a theater level. Other HAVELSAN products on display will also include a flexible Air Traffic Control trainer, as well as a Tactical Planning system for military applications.
Quantum3D will show the latest capabilities of its industry-leading real-time image generation products, including the award-winning MANTIS scene management software which is available in a fully-functional free version aimed at developers and potential customers. New for introduction in early 2018, Quantum3D will preview MANTIS plugins for both X-Plane® and Prepar3D®, making it possible to build simulators with these popular software platforms, while upgrading to the superior out-the-window visual experience provided by MANTIS. The newest Independence IDX 80 turn-key Image Generator product will be on display as well, which provides high-quality visual capabilities for full flight simulators with up to eight displays in the industry’s smallest package and at a compellingly low price point.
MANTIS and the IDX 80 can also be seen on display in several partner booths elsewhere at the show, including domeprojection.com / project:syntropy (Booth #1723), Esterline (Booth #827), and Immersive Display Solutions (Booth #1273).
