MetaVR 3D visualisation for USAF
MetaVR will supply its Virtual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG) for the US Air Force’s Joint Terminal Control Training and Rehearsal System (JTC TRS), the company announced on 22 February.
The company has been selected to provide the visuals as part of the simulator equipment being supplied to the USAF by QuantaDyn. The partial dome simulator immerses the joint terminal attack controller (JTAC) or forward air controller (FAC) trainee in a 3D real-time virtual battlefield. The simulators can be linked to the air force’s A-10 Full Mission Trainers (FMT).
The MetaVR visual channels include geospecific 3D terrain that provides out-of-the window and sensor visuals for the dome display and emulated military equipment.
QuantaDyn’s JTC TRS solution also incorporates Battlespace Simulation’s (BSI’s) Modern Air Combat Environment (MACE) system for the instructor-operator and role-player stations, as well as BSI’s Viper DIS radio for all simulated radio. When coupled with MACE - which provides computer-generated/semi-automated forces with call-for-fire, 5-line and 9-line interfaces - the VRSG can simulate highly congested/degraded battlespaces including environments with radar, GPS and communications jamming, sophisticated integrated air defence systems, and adversaries with peer or near-peer capabilities in expansive, round-earth, geospecific virtual worlds.
Under its contract, QuantaDyn will initially install and support two JTC TRS devices in 2016, with additional options for 30 more devices.
