Quantum3D Government Systems Selected by CAE to Upgrade the BOWST Training Aerial Refueling Simulator
Milpitas, CA – November 20, 2018 – Quantum3D Government Systems (Q3DGS), a leading provider of Training and Simulation services for commercial and government applications were selected today by CAE to provide upgrades to CAE’s Boom Operator Weapons System Trainer (BOWST) aerial refueling simulators at 9 installations. Quantum3D Government Systems will upgrade the simulators from Q3DGS’s IDX 6000 to Q3DGS’s state of the art IDX 8000 image generator.
The current BOWST aerial refueling simulator uses the Quantum3D Independence IDX 6000 image generator with five channels, GeoScapeSE® WWDB (Worldwide Database), and advanced weather and ocean plug-ins. The simulator leverages advanced shadows, spotlights, aircraft lighting, and refueling receptacles to provide realistic cues and support the high demands for depth perception required by boom operators
The BOWST simulator upgrade will improve the cybersecurity posture of the BOWST IG. It will also upgrade and improve the operating system from the current Windows Server 2008 and Windows XP Embedded operating systems. Q3DGS will also support CAE in the hardening of the utilized operating system with the applicable STIGs that do not affect IG operation.
Quantum3D Government Systems President, Mark Matthews stated, “We look forward to supporting CAE and the US Air Force with the enhanced upgrades of our IDX 8000 image generator system that will provide the users with an improved realistic training environment and long-term sustainability.”
