Quantum3D IDX 2500 ER with Quantum3D Enhanced Sensor Simulation Technology Employed by L-3 Link Simulation and Training for Upgrade of U.S. Navy P-3C Tactical Operational Readiness Trainer
SAN JOSE, CA - August 13, 2007 - Quantum3D®, Inc., a leading provider of COTS, open architecture, realtime visual computing solutions, today announced that L-3 Communications Link Simulation and Training (L-3 Link) has selected Quantum3D Independence® IDX 2500 ER Image Generator Solutions as part of the upgrades that L-3 Link is performing on the P-3C Tactical Operational Readiness Trainer (TORT) for the U.S. Navy.
The P-3C TORT supports training for the entire crew of the P-3C Orion, which is the primary long-range anti-submarine warfare patrol aircraft for the U.S. Navy. The upgrade provides enhanced fidelity visual and sensor simulation systems that enable P-3C flight crews to train using the complete functionality of the aircraft's sensor systems, and then communicate that mission critical data to other aircraft or command centers. The P-3C TORT upgrades are scheduled for delivery during 2007.
The Quantum3D IDX 2500 ER IG Solutions provided to L-3 Link for the P-3C TORT upgrades provide correlated high-resolution Out-the-Window (OTW) visual and high-fidelity sensor simulation channels that include infrared and visual capabilities that simulate the combinations of Day TV and IR sensors used in the P-3C. The IDX 2500 ER sensor simulation capabilities employ QUEST(TM)-- Quantum3D Enhanced Sensor Simulation Technology, which combines unique Quantum3D COTS hardware/software technologies to provide high-fidelity physics-based sensor simulation that maintains 16-bits of dynamic range from the at-aperture rendering through post-processed output.
"The P-3C TORT program provides full spectrum mission training for the Orion crew," said Ross Q. Smith, Quantum3D Co-founder and President. "Quantum3D is pleased to be part of the L-3 Link team that is bringing new technology for enhanced fidelity to this critical training program for the U.S. Navy."
