By: Isaak Zulkarnaen

California-based Training and simulation technology provider, Quantum3D has bagged a contract from Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) to supply the MANTIS image generator (IG) for the South Korean company’s new generation fighter aircraft training simulator.

This turnkey image generator system will include hardware, software, installation and OEM training, a database generation system, a comprehensive database and spare parts.

In addition to MANTIS’s many features, the image generator will have radar detection capabilities. The IG shall provide full region-of-interest out-the-window visual scenes and will provide the pilot with a real-time visual environment of day and night scenes. The system will also come with correlated sensors and radar channels. 

The state-of-the-art hardware, combined with the latest performance enhancements to the MANTIS image generator software will result in an IG capable of driving 4K resolution projectors with 16x antialiasing. This leads to the generation of extremely realistic training environments with minimum distracting aliasing artifacts.
