Quantum3D partners with Intelligent Decisions
Quantum3D, Inc., a leading provider of visual computing solutions for government and commercial applications, today announced it will provide its ExpeditionDI immersive training platform to Intelligent Decisions, Inc. for the Close Combat Tactical Training - Dismounted Soldier Training System (CCTT-DSTS) led by the Army's Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO-STRI).
"Intelligent Decisions and Quantum3D are partnering to provide our deploying soldiers with the best available training through the new Dismounted Soldier Training System," said Harry Martin, president and CEO of Intelligent Decisions. "Quantum3D's ExpeditionDI is a cutting-edge training platform that will enable Intelligent Decisions to deliver a fully immersive, virtual training environment to help the US maintain its military advantage."
ExpeditionDI is the industry's first self-contained, wearable and fully-immersive close combat infantry simulator training platform. As part of the Intelligent Decisions Dismounted Soldier Training System, ExpeditionDI will enable soldiers to easily and more effectively simulate individual and squad-based close-combat exercises. ExpeditionDI is equipped with advanced technologies, including a high-resolution Head Mounted Display (HMD) and a powerful battery-powered wearable computing pack, that enable an infantry squad to move through and interact in a virtual environment while fighting and communicating as they would in a real-world combat situation.
"ExpeditionDI is poised to dramatically alter the way today's infantry trains for combat," said Arthur Yan, president of Quantum3D. "Partnering with Intelligent Decisions underscores Quantum3D's commitment to providing elite immersive training platforms and we look forward to playing a key role in the training and unit-readiness of our ground troops."
The Dismounted Soldier Training System is the first of its kind and allows US soldiers, leaders and units to train in a virtual environment, helping improve the quality of instruction and combat preparedness, while simultaneously reducing training expenses. ExpeditionDI is an integral component of the training system, offering a realistic, hands-on training experience designed to enhance tactical decision-making skills and enable soldiers to learn to communicate and fight as a team prior to live engagement.
