SAN JOSE, Calif., Aug. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Quantum3D, Inc., a leading provider of visual computing solutions for government and commercial applications, has been awarded Military Embedded Systems' Editor's Choice Award in the August issue for its ExpeditionDI®, the industry's first self-contained, wearable and fully-immersive close combat infantry simulator training platform.
"OpenSystems Media editors are constantly combing through thousands of new product releases and submissions to find the select few to which we will present an Editor's Choice award," said Sharon Hess, managing editor at OpenSystems Media. "We've chosen to recognize Quantum3D for its innovative ExpeditionDI – a realistic, immersive 3D training experience deployable on-base or in-theater – where both individual war fighters and infantry squads can be exposed to the sights and sounds of a battlefield in a safe environment."
Deployed and in use for over five years, ExpeditionDI is equipped with a high-resolution Head Mounted Display (HMD) and fully integrated wearable computing pack, and responds simultaneously to multiple body and weapon movements. These advanced technologies enable an infantry squad to move through and interact in a virtual environment while fighting and communicating as they would in a real-world combat situation. For further flexibility, ExpeditionDI can be used for individual or coordinated squad-based training, and can be wirelessly networked into large scale joint training operations.
"It is an honor to be recognized with an Editor's Choice Award from Military Embedded Systems," said Arthur Yan, president, Quantum3D. "The ExpeditionDI training platform represents the future of military training, enabling soldiers to easily and effectively simulate squad-based close-combat exercises to ensure readiness for real-world battle scenarios, and ultimately save warfighter's lives."
