Simulation Tools

Virtual Reality enables to animate and control the objects composing a scene. This can be user control, external application control, pre defed scenario control, external user control, internal inter object cooperative control or any combination ...

This leads to a very powerfull simulation tool.

  • We developped a mission planning and rehearsal simulation generator.

  • A GIS gathers the information and produces a complete, self contained, platform independant, stand alone and diffusable simulation environment.
  • Main goals achieved:

  • Click button generation for the 3D model and simulator
  • Stand alone, cross platform use of the simulator, no specific software needed
  • Simulator is runable on a laptop. (deployment target is middle class PCs- PII/PIII)
  • Generation process speed, and in simulator objects editing, enables last minute change, or adding of information.

In simulation

  • Geometric and graphic rendering of large areas
  • Recorded FlyPath or free flight capacities
  • Free external viewpoint observation
  • Embeds model exploration tools (telemetry, navigation, etc...)
  • Lighting, fog, colors parameters settings
  • Procedural objects (an electric line can be define at the last minute from within the simulator for example)
  • HUD handling.


Simulation external observer

Virtual Reality enables the user to immerse himself in a known environment, and to manipulate tools, objects and concepts he's used to in real life.

Here, for example, the cockpit frame is an important indicator.

The simulator enables the user to pick a vehicle from a library. It can be a terrestrial vehicle or airborne. The behavior will be vehicle dependant ...

All this creates a great adaptability of the tool.


The realism is an important point in this kind of simulation. As an example, the simulator takes the sound into account, a 3D spatialized one of course ...
