AEgis for US Army gaming 3D models

14th December 2016 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


AEgis Technologies will develop high fidelity 3D models for the US Army Game Studio under two contracts announced on 12 December.

The AAA game quality models will support the army’s goal to create a library of high quality virtual 3D models for use in next-generation simulations, training and gaming platforms to be distributed via the Military Gaming Portal. 

The models will be unspecified US and foreign military vehicles constructed with polygon counts averaging 50,000 polygons per model exterior and up to 50,000 polygons per vehicle interior. 

AEgis will fully rig and test the models for direct integration into the Unreal 4 game engine. The models will be built in accordance with specifications that encompass as many foreseeable visual simulation uses as possible, and will undergo a rigorous validation process by the US Army to ensure that the models accurately portray the real-world vehicles.

Tony Castillo, art director/program manager, real-time 3D modeling programs, AEgis Technologies, said: ‘The current generation of soldiers grew up playing video games that were realistic and believable. AEgis is proud to be selected as part of an effort to bring the US Army warfighter training to that same ‘AAA game quality’ level.’
