Products Overview

Training and Simulation Platforms

Fixed Wing and Rotary Wing Flight Simulators

Following pilot trainings can be provided on the trainer aircraft simulators:

• Getting on and off-board the aircraft
• Internal controls, controls prior to take-off and after landing
• Engine start and stop
• Instrumental and visual navigation, approach, touch and go and landing
• Taxiing procedures
• Normal and emergency procedures
• Acrobatic moves, stall, spin
• Night/day formation flight
• Simulated ammunition firing

UAV Simulator

The UAV Simulator is designed for operator and pilot, mission commanders, and image interpreters training across a range of mission profiles. The UAV simulator is designed to simulate a generic aerodynamic model integrated with sensors and camera simulations to provide mission specific or operational training. The UAV Simulator can be customized for your UAV model and visually adapted to any terrain or environment worldwide. The UAV Simulator can operate either in standalone mode, or networked with other training systems for team-based training. The system is designed for portability and transportability for deployment worldwide or setup in classroom environment.

Artillery Forward Observer Training Simulator (AFOS)

The Artillery Forward Observer Simulator (AFOS) is a computer based trainer for Forward Observers and Fire Direction Center Personnel. The AFOS trains the Observer on targeting, fire requests and management of firings across a range of training scenarios. The AFOS can simulate varied training environments, including a variety of static and moving targets, custom terrain and land views and realistic weather effects. The AFOS uses accurate ballistic physics models and integrates realistic visual cues and sound effects to create a realistic training environment. Upon completion of a training exercise, the built-in After Action Review system will allow trainees to review and evaluate performance and identify areas for improvement.

Forest Fire Fighting Training Simulator

Forest Fire Fighting Training Simulator (FireFLY) has been created to train forest engineers, who undertake the most significant job in forest fire fighting, using simulation technologies. Simulator has been designed to improve organization and coordination capabilities of chiefs in charge of fighting forest fires. Forest engineers can assume the roles of Team Commander, Font Leader, Front Chief or Fire Chief during fight against forest fires. They strengthen their duties and responsibilities in these roles in real fires. Simulator is intended to improve their skills without waiting for actual forest fires to occur.

Software Image Generation


Quantum3D’s MANTIS is a real-time scene management software application. It employs a powerful client / server software architecture that provides high-bandwidth, low-latency separation between simulation and graphics processing. Advanced rendering techniques create realism achievable only with high-end image generators.

MANTIS® Commander

Take the hassle out of developing a custom multichannel Image Generator (IG) with MANTIS Commander. Commander brings ease-of-use and maintenance capabilities as found in Quantum3D’s flagship Independence® IDX series, and makes them available in an economical software suite suitable for any size IG based on COTS components. With a convenient central user interface, Commander simplifies system management tasks such as configuration, start-up, and maintenance.

Sensor Simulation Solutions

QUEST®2 is one of the newest plug-ins developed by Quantum3D which will extend Quantum3D’s Real-Time Scene Management Software, MANTIS®, to include shader-based, simulated sensor post processing. This new plug-in for MANTIS will work with Quantum3D’s Independence® IDX 8000 or any hardware that meets the MANTIS software specifications. Using the highly programmable vertex and fragment shaders available in current generation GPUs, QUEST2 renders simulated sensor effects in software. 

Turnkey Image Generation Solutions

Independence® IDX 8000

A new standard for the most powerful and compact real-time image generation available in simulation, training and mission rehearsal applications.

Independence® IDX 80

Equipped with Quantum3D’s award-winning MANTIS® software, the Independence IDX 80 provides exceptional value and performance for small and medium complexity visual systems with up to 8 channels.

Synthetic Environments

CatalystSE™ DBGS

CatalystSE DBGS is a custom configurable, PC based, open architecture, Commercial-Off-the-Shelf (COTS) database solution that enables customers to develop, modify and maintain wide-area, high resolution, geo-specific synthetic environments.

GeoScapeSE® WWDB

GeoScapeSE is a library of diverse common source materials that are used to create simulated environments for visual training purposes. GeoScapeSE has two main databases: GeoScapeSE WWDB (World Wide Database) and CONUS (Covering the Entire Conterminous United States) OTW (Out-the-Window).


Facets are real-time 3D models that provide the ultimate in flexibility and affordability. The Facets library contains over 900 unique models from 51 model categories. It enables any model, with any conceivable configuration and level of detail, to be instantly incorporated into a customer’s image generator.

Custom Visual Database

With a highly experienced synthetic environment team, Quantum3D is able to quickly customize all terrain databases to customers’ specifications, greatly enhancing the company’s image generation solutions.
