WASHINGTON -- AUSA, Booth #4045 -- Quantum3D, Inc., a leading provider of visual computing solutions for government and commercial applications, today announced new additions to its ExpeditionDI® self-contained, wearable and fully-immersive close combat infantry simulator training platform.

ExpeditionDI's new HMD provides a wide 60-degree Field-of-View perspective to more effectively immerse soldiers in the virtual training environment. Featuring up to four smart batteries, ExpeditionDI now offers over two hours of continuous virtual training without interruption. The wearable computer pack also features a built-in thermal shield and alarm, as well as a new quick-release latch to enable soldiers to immediately unlatch the pack from their back for improved safety.

For added training flexibility, ExpeditionDI integrates the latest in wireless technology for weapons and systems to support training of multiple squads simultaneously in-room without signal interference. ExpeditionDI also adds an M4 with a M320 grenade launcher option, expanding the range of immersive training scenarios and applications.

ExpeditionDI is currently being integrated into the Close Combat Tactical Trainer - Dismounted Soldier Training System (CCTT-DSTS) -- driving today's standards in soldier training.
