Lockheed releases Prepar3D v4

5th June 2017 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Lockheed Martin has released the fourth version of its Prepar3D training and simulation software, the company announced on 31 May.

With an update to a 64-bit architecture, Prepar3D v4 features visual upgrades including enhanced virtual reality support, a new realistic lighting system, 3D weather capabilities and the ability to create training scenarios in 40 high-detail cities and over 24,900 airports worldwide. The new system also features performance improvements and redesigned user interface.

The new software comes with tools to allow users to create self-paced courseware and instructor-led classroom training. Its redesigned Software Development Kit also enables third-party development of custom add-ons.

Sandy Samuel, vice president, Training and Simulation Solutions, Lockheed Martin, said: ‘Training meets reality with Lockheed Martin's Prepar3D simulation software and v4 provides unprecedented realism. While initially the premier tool for training both commercial and military aviators, Prepar3D has grown to drive simulation for almost any vehicle in the air, at sea, underwater or even in the depths of space.’
