TerraSim Announces Major Product Releases and More at I/ITSEC 2010

November 19, 2010

Pittsburgh, PA - TerraSim, Inc. will feature cutting edge technology innovations in its terrain generation and source data preparation software products at I/ITSEC 2010 at Booth 1469. I/ITSEC is the premiere conference for leaders in training and education programs from the armed services, academia, industry, and government and will be held in Orlando, FL from November 29 - December 2, 2010.

TerraTools® 4.0: The Most Powerful Terrain Generation Software

Packed with new features and updates requested by our customers, TerraTools 4.0 is the most technologically advanced terrain generation software available. TerraSim is pleased to announce that TerraTools 4.0 will be on display at I/ITSEC and will be available to customers in the first quarter of 2011.

TerraTools Core is the only fully multi-threaded commercial terrain product providing users with up to eight fully independent processing threads on a single runtime license.

64-bit Native Mode for Large Scale Database Processing

TerraTools 4.0 introduces 64-bit native mode for the fastest processing of large scale database builds.

Each thread has unlimited access to workstation memory, allowing a single workstation to generate databases that span hundreds of geotiles significantly faster than legacy multi machine based systems.

Generating Both Quality and Quantity

TerraTools-generated simulation databases use the most advanced adaptive terrain surface computation to ensure that databases run smoothly in any supported runtime. Large area databases are developed for terrain efficiency, unlike legacy systems using block-based construction techniques. This efficiency allow complex exercises with thousands of SAF entities across hundreds of geocells to run with minimal hardware resources.

Ground Simulation and Beyond

TerraTools 4.0 includes new features in Batch Mode processing that automate the construction of broad areas. TerraTools Batch processing also supports the assembly of large area geospecific phototextures for the most advanced visual simulation requirements.

The Leader in Correlated Constructive and Serious Game Simulation

TerraTools now supports export to the largest number of virtual, constructive, and serious game formats on the market. Exported terrains are correlated by design, not translation.

All exporters are fully supported with product documentation, training materials, and help desk support – so that our customers can reach their goals.

  • Virtual: OpenFlight, OpenSceneGraph for MÄK VR-Vantage
  • Constructive: OneSAF OTF, JointSAF or OTBSAF CTDB, GDB for MÄK VR-Forces, JCATS
  • Serious Game: VBS2, Steel Beasts Professional.

At I/ITSEC, TerraSim will announce new support for additional constructive and serious game runtimes.

Automation with Urban Details™

TerraTools Urban Details™ processing automatically places urban clutter, generates complex buildings with interiors and furniture models, and builds complex roof types like domes and parapets for the most advanced portrayal of urban areas.

Urban Details processing is included for no additional cost in TerraTools Core, and results can be exported to any supported runtime format.



Advances In Source Data Preparation

Updates to TerraSim's source data preparation products allows users to cut the key cost drivers in modeling and simulation workflows. TerraSim's newest product Xtract™ recovers legacy source data and processes it for reuse in any modeling and simulation product. Our latest 2.0 release of RoadMAP from TerraSim® seamlessly detects, delineates, and attributes road networks and other linear features from aerial and satellite imagery.

For complete details on these new developments and more, visit TerraSim at Booth 1469. TerraSim system developers and database engineers will be on hand to provide live demonstrations, describe current and future TerraTools, Xtract, and RoadMAP enhancements. Come discuss how TerraSim can support your correlated geospatial database construction needs.
