Prepar3D at ITEC Update

Wes Bard from the Prepar3D team showcases the training technology.

Lockheed Martin attended ITEC, Europe’s premier training and simulation technology show, where it demoed Prepar3D v. 1.1. Held several times daily, the Prepar3D ® demo showcased the power of the software, including its new features.

Demo highlights included:

  • Bathymetric detail … Prepar3D ® now offers even more detailed depictions of water. Schools are using Prepar3D ® to help students learn about undersea life. With bathymetry, students can add rich details to their underwater worlds, learning about coral reefs, fish and more.
  • Sensors … newly added military sensors provide enhanced fidelity – an element of realism that’s newly realized for this technology
  • New scenarios … the team showcased a fresh search-and-rescue exercise undertaken by a very detailed, highly realistic SH-60 helicopter. The helicopter itself was developed by Aerosoft and included a clear depiction of North Wales geography.

The examples demonstrated how users can integrate elements designed by other developers to quickly, easily and affordably to customize training solutions for their specific needs. Customers at the show appreciated the flexibility and scalability of Prepar3D ®, with many showing interest in the software development kit tutorials. The team is looking forward to continuing to showcase the benefits of Prepar3D in the future.
