Independence® IDX 9000

The ultimate in realism and performance

“A new standard for the most powerful real-time image generation available in simulation, training and mission rehearsal applications with GeoScapeSE® WWDB, the industry’s first seamless worldwide coverage utilizing drop in high-resolution insets, the SoCal sample database and from our growing library of airfields, the San Francisco International Level D airport.”

Able to meet or exceed the requirements of virtually any image generation application, the Independence IDX 9000 provides the best value in open architecture, advanced IG solutions available today. IDX 9000 is perfect for any simulation system: fixed-wing and rotary-wing aviation, FAA Level D Full-flight simulators, weapons and gunnery systems, hardware-in-the-loop sensors, automotive research, development and driving simulators, military ground vehicles, fixed base and forward air traffic control, ship’s bridge, mono & stereo scientific visualization and virtual reality.
As the top-of-the-line model in the Independence IG series, the IDX 9000 leads the way in providing the industry’s highest compute performance density. Incorporating server-class mother boards with the latest Intel Xeon Scalable processors, and up to four NVIDIA’s RTX GPUs on each 4U node, the IDX 9000 delivers cutting edge performance.
With its smaller package and increased performance, IDX 9000 sets the standard for rapid deployment, field upgradeability and scene realism. The IDX 9000 delivers performance, fidelity, reliability, quality and overall value. With its NVIDIA Quadro Sync technology, the IDX 9000 can scale up to any large system, with over 50 synchronized channels.

  • Long Term Support

    3 year warranty or 10 year service support under Quantum3D’s obsolescence guarantee program.

  • Density

    The IDX 9000 achieves unmatched levels of visual computing density by combining a server-class motherboards with the latest Intel Xeon Scalable processors, and up to four NVIDIA’s RTX GPUs on each 4U node, and Quadro Sync Precision Video Synchronization into a compact 4U Rendering Units (IGU).

  • Open Architecture

    The IDX 9000 supports industry-standard CIGI 2.0, 3.x and 4.0 messaging protocol over dedicated Gigabit Ethernet, and industry-standard database formats including OpenFlight, NPSI, CDB, and CTDB.

  • Worldwide Database

    The IDX 9000 supports Quantum3D’s World Wide Database (WWDB) - a continuous flight, worldwide terrain, modeled with 15m geo-specific imagery. Drop-in Hi-Res insets are customer-enabled using CatalystSE DBGS tools.

  • High Resolution Channels

    Super High-resolution, multiple-input, projectors (e.g. 4K x 2K) are supported with no additional effort.

  • Sensor Enabled

    The IDX 9000 supports QUEST®2 and viXsen for correlated, physics-based NVG, IR, Day Camera EO Simulation applications and Stimulated NVG applications.

Independence IDX 8000
