Simthetiq delivers high performance virtual terrain for Raydon gunnery trainer

MONTREAL, Canada (January, 2014)

Simthetiq is pleased to announce the completion of a contract awarded from Raydon Inc. to develop a high fidelity, geo-specific 3D environment for use in Raydon’s mission critical gunnery training solutions.

The terrain was developed in Presagis TerraVista and delivered in Openflight format. For this project, Simthetiq created a custom texture atlasing toolset to optimize performance while ensuring a high pixel ratio display. The final synthetic environment displays high resolution ground multi-textures, dynamic shadows and volumetric trees using Speedtree middleware technology.

As Simthetiq CEO, Vincent Cloutier stated: “We collaborated with Raydon to find the best response to technical requirements whilst ensuring a high degree of realism in the final product.” He added: “We look forward to seeing this terrain in Raydon’s training system.”
