Quantum3D, Inc. has been selected by Reiser Simulation and Training GmbH to provide image generators and synthetic visual databases for Reiser's civil full flight simulator (FFS) for 4t class helicopters. The planned FFS will be used for helicopter training primarily in civil urban traffic environments and in offshore scenarios.

The Independence® IDX 8000 series offers both out-the-window and night-vision capability to drive the 15 visual channels in Reiser's simulator. Pilots will be trained on Quantum3D developed high-resolution synthetic visual database providing extremely realistic cues in critical near-ground helicopter search and rescue scenarios. The first version of this training platform will target the Airbus Helicopters model H145 (formerly known as the Eurocopter EC145T2). The FFS including its visual system will be qualified to CS-FSTD(H) Level D.

"Helicopter pilots face challenging missions every day, and our goal is to provide the most realistic training experience including NVG missions with their real goggles which will maximize their safety and professionalism," said Frank Thieser, managing director, Reiser Training Service GmbH. "After an extensive evaluation, Quantum3D's IDX 8000 and MANTIS® technology and capabilities give us the most realistic, robust, and highest-performing solution for our application."
