Simthetiq Provides Key Components in US BOSS Contract
MONTREAL, Canada (February, 2013)
Simthetiq has recently finalized the sale of 3D simulation entity models for the Boom Operator Simulation System (BOSS) being produced by FAAC Incorporated for the Air National Guard (ANG). Their highly realistic and fully exploitable models will be a central part of the BOSS training program.
The BOSS is a high fidelity trainer for ANG boom operators that replicates the KC-135R Block 40 boom pod. The BOSS provides a realistic simulation environment that utilizes highly immersive 3D models from Simthetiq with simulation software and an emulation of the actual aircraft boom controls provided by FAAC. The system is intended for squadron level training to be co-located with operational KC-135 air refueling wings.
Simthetiq CEO, Vincent Cloutier, stated: “This contract is yet another example of the growing partnership between Simthetiq and leading simulation companies, such as FAAC, and is a sign of the confidence shown by our clients in the high quality and agile 3D content we provide. Our content improves the fidelity of any simulator or training device and, more importantly, is a key component in supporting the training needs of a modern military.”
