SAN JOSE, Calif., March 21, 2012 /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 January/February issue for its Mantis Real-Time Scene Management software. Mantis supports a wide range of PC hardware configurations to match any simulation application, including fixed- and rotary-wing flight simulation, ground vehicle simulation, tank simulation, mission rehearsal, sensor simulation, and more.

According to OpenSystems Media, "Our editors review product releases and submissions to recognize the latest and most innovative technologies. Quantum3D's innovative Mantis Real-Time Scene Management platform was chosen and recognized for its move into a multi-platform style that lets customers use the PC hardware they deem most suitable, while continuing to offer the simulation application savvy it always has for various applications."

Previously sold exclusively with Quantum3D's renowned Independence® IDX series of image generator, Mantis is now available as a standalone, software-only product, enabling customers to create their own PC hardware configuration that best meets their application needs, whether instrument/cockpit familiarization, ground vehicles, hardware-in-the-loop simulations, UAV trainers, or maintenance simulators. Mantis delivers high-resolution imagery and features a full range of special effects, sensors, weather, and lighting, along with mission-critical functions such as height-above-terrain and line-of-sight intersection testing.

"We are excited to be once again honored by the editors at Military Embedded Systems, this time for our Mantis flight simulation platform," said Arthur Yan, president, Quantum3D. "Mantis has been used for years in many of our high-end virtual simulations with Quantum3D's Independence IDX Image generators, including the IDX 4000, IDX 6000, and IDX 7000. We are very excited to now offer Mantis as a standalone product, giving users the flexibility to create their own PC hardware configuration or choose the fully configured Independence IDX series of image generator for an endless variety of simulation applications."

With additional plug-ins, Mantis can support even more effects, including ocean effects, and rotorwash – for an even greater sense of realism. In addition, Mantis is equipped with a suite of features to support communication functions, interfacing to peripheral devices and displays, and multi-channel synchronization. For further flexibility, Mantis is fully customizable to provide unique effects and specific features to meet the demands of any simulation and training needs.

Mantis is based on Windows for easy configurability, management and use, and leverages industry standards such as CIGI to interface with host devices. For more information on Mantis, visit Quantum3D's website.
