Quantum3D completes Nigeria Terrain Database Development and 3D Modeling project

Milpitas, CA – October 8, 2021 – Quantum3D based in Silicon Valley, CA, and Orlando, FL, a leading developer and manufacturer of real-time visual simulation systems, has completed a custom Nigeria terrain database for one of the major aerospace companies.

The entire Nigeria landmass has been created successfully by the team of experienced Quantum3D Terrain developers and 3D modelers. All the requirements have been completed in a much shorter time than originally planned.

As requested by the customer, the Quantum3D team has also modeled 47 airfields in Nigeria as part of this project. Some of these airports are very high resolution, high fidelity, Level D compliant, and contain detailed geo-specific buildings which are surrounded by geo-typical buildings and trees. The remaining modeled airports are medium resolution and contain control tower, tower beacon, taxiway, ramps, and runway lighting, and they can easily be converted to a Level D compliant airport when needed.

This Nigeria terrain database is created in OGC standard CDB format which enables the creation and modification of run-time databases within minutes or hours instead of weeks or months.

The terrain database fully supports Infrared (IR) simulation utilizing the ViXsen and Quest2 plug-ins of MANTIS, Quantum3D’s award-winning real-time scene management and image generation software.

With the completion of this project by Quantum3D, Nigerian pilots will be able to train in more realistic terrain environments of the whole country of Nigeria.
