Officials from simulation learning company 3Dsolve have announced that the company plans to showcase several new technologies at the 2006 Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference, which is being held at the Florida Convention Center in Orlando, from December 4-7.
Included among 3Dsolve's offerings will be its DPM-3D technology for large-scale collaborative training in complex environments, and OV3D for visualizing the network-centric battlefield. In addition, 3Dsolve will also be showcasing its recent work with the America’s Army
Game Project at the event.
3Dsolve’s DPM-3D (Dynamic Plant Model in 3D) is a high-fidelity multi-user training environment that communicates with real or simulated equipment. DPM-3D supports thousands of dynamic and interactive objects, including switches, gauges, valves, and indicator lights, as well as ambient and directional sounds of specific equipment (e.g. pumps, filters, generators, alarms). Its technology is expandable to support hundreds of simultaneous participants.
In addition, 3Dsolve’s OV3D (Operational Views in 3D) is a visual simulation tool enabling planners to create scenarios describing communications networks in a modern 3D battlespace environment, with instant visualization of these scenarios for interactive editing and presentation to senior decision-makers. Extracting from relational database descriptions, OV3D can display the hierarchical relationships, dependencies, and activities among platforms, equipment, and personnel while deployed on real world battlefield terrain. OV3D provides an instant visualization of database reports that are otherwise difficult to understand for interactive editing and presentation to decision makers.
"We look forward to introducing our most recent breakthroughs in simulation learning technologies to current and prospective partners at I/ITSEC," said Richard Boyd, chief executive officer of 3Dsolve. "I am also eager to work with other NTSA Executive Committee members to continue to advance simulation training."
