Quantum3D to supply image generator for TAI’s new T-625 flight simulator

Quantum3D is to provide its visual solution in support of a flight simulator for Turkish Aerospace Industries' (TAI) new T-625 helicopter design.

Quantum3D is to provide its visual solution in support of a flight simulator for Turkish Aerospace Industries' (TAI) new T-625 helicopter design.

The contract to provide a complete visual system was awarded by a Turkish global software and systems provider Havelsan.

Quantum3D will supply its Independence IDX 8000 Series image generator that is built on the latest visual computing technology, including Intel's latest Xeon CPUs and NVIDIA's Quadro P-series GPUs.

The image generator also features the company's MANTIS scene generation software on a PC-based hardware platform for real-time visual simulation.

When used together with Quantum3D's GeoScapeSE World-Wide Database, IDX 8000 is said to provide a solution with an ability to fly to thousands of airports, cities, and other destinations around the globe.

"Being a part of this programme with TAI only adds to the momentum of success we've been seeing recently as the emerging visual platform of choice in the rotary-wing segment."

Quantum3D Business Development and Sales vice-president Brian Overy said: "Helicopter simulation is one of the most demanding applications from a visual system perspective.

"Being a part of this programme with TAI only adds to the momentum of success we've been seeing recently as the emerging visual platform of choice in the rotary-wing segment."

The T-625, which was initially named 'Ozgun', is being built as part of a programme initiated in 2014 to replace the Turkish Armed Forces' ageing fleet of Bell Helicopter UH-1H Hueys.

The simulator will support the first prototype airframe, which is currently under development, with volume production anticipated to begin in late 2018.
