US firm Quantum3D has been selected to provide Image Generation technology as part of the first flight simulator being delivered to Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) in support of its new T-625 helicopter design.
The simulator will feature Quantum3D's Independence IDX 8000 Series Image Generator (IG), which is Quantum3D's IG solution featuring its MANTIS scene generation software on a PC-based hardware platform, the company announced today.
Initially named "Ozgun", the T-625 is part of a program initiated in 2014 to replace the Turkish Armed Forces' aging fleet of Bell Helicopter UH-1H Hueys.
This simulator is to support the first prototype airframe, currently under development, with volume production anticipated to begin in late 2018.
The entire visual system (including displays) for the simulator is being integrated under contract with HAVELSAN, a global software and systems provider based in Ankara, Turkey.
Quantum3D's new IDX 8000 image generator is built on the latest in visual computing technology, including Intel's latest Xeon CPUs and NVIDIA's Quadro P-series GPUs for the best performance, maximum reliability, and the highest levels of scene quality and realism available today.
The IDX 8000 includes MANTIS - Quantum3D's advanced software for real-time visual simulation.
