Quantum3D Inc. delivered its IDX80 image generator with MANTIS simulation software to Virgin Galactic’s New Mexico Spaceport facility. Virgin Galactic chose Quantum3D’s turnkey image generator to mirror the Quantum3D image generator that was deployed several years ago at their sister company, The Spaceship Company, in Mojave, California.

With newer technology, Quantum3D supplied its standalone IDX80 with six channels utilizing NVIDIA’s P6000 GPU technology to drive six Barco F50 projectors for Virgin Galactic’s spaceship simulator. Quantum3D, based on additional requirements from Virgin Galactic, deployed a separate standalone PC that is being used to simulate a chase plane view as seen from a VIP standpoint during flight.

With Quantum3D’s IDX80 Image Generator and its MANTIS simulation software, Virgin Galactic Spaceport can use Quantum3D technology to train pilots in a variety of simulations, from instrument/cockpit familiarization to 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, and many more.
