Stratolaunch selects Quantum3D’s Advanced Simulation Platform for Hypersonic Flight Training
Milpitas, CA – September 13, 2021 – Quantum3D has been awarded a new contract by Stratolaunch to train pilots in their launch vehicle for hypersonic aircraft. This contract includes the delivery of the latest IDX 90 advanced Image Generator to the Stratolaunch test and training facility in California.
IDX90 will provide cutting edge technology with state-of-the-art hardware, utilizing NVIDIA’s RTX6000 GPU and Quantum3D’s latest version 4.1.0 of the MANTIS real time scene management software. This will provide Stratolaunch with an up-to-date visual system to effectively train their pilots.
Quantum3D’s latest technology will allow Stratolaunch to train their pilots in a wide range of situations, including fault and hazard occurrences in different environmental conditions. It will also provide a platform for instrument and cockpit familiarization.
Quantum3D is continuously adding new capabilities to support today’s increasing demands for higher resolution and higher quality training and simulation environments. With Quantum3D’s enhanced performance and capabilities of IDX 90, Stratolaunch will now be on the latest technology that can be supported for years to come.
Stratolaunch designs, manufactures, and launches aerospace vehicles and technologies to fulfill several important national needs, including the need for reliable, routine access to the hypersonic flight environment to significantly advance the nation’s ability to design and operate hypersonic vehicles.
