Calytrix and Trian Graphics - Redefining Terrain

Calytrix Technologies and TrianGraphics are pleased to announce their joint R&D partnership to develop innovative, yet simplified approaches to creating and managing correlated terrain exports for the Titan Vanguard synthetic environment. Titan Vanguard delivers a new and highly innovative approach to global terrain. Out of the box Vanguard provides the entire globe's terrain rendered at 15 cm accuracy, as well as truly "point-and-click" tools for rapidly generating visually stunning scenery that can instantly be used by Vanguard synthetic forces and first person mode. In Vanguard, the user can simply go to any location on the globe, import open-source building locations or rapidly place roads, buildings and objects into the 3D world in real-time with just a few mouse clicks.

TrianGraphics offers Trian3DBuilder, a powerful Database Generation System to create terrains and 3D content from real-world data with a high level of automation. The software also offers a comprehensive editor to improve and enhance data, which can then be exported into a multitude of correlated formats. In Titan Vanguard 2017.2, not only will we deliver a CIGI interface but users will also be able to export their Vanguard terrain into open-standard ShapeFile formats. Working closely with TrianGraphics will be expanding on this new capability to deliver:

  • Correlated exports for existing formats and simulation systems. Standards and systems will include:
    • OpenFlight, FBX, OpenSceneGraph
    • Standards
    • VBS3
  • Advanced 3D Building Capability
    • OpenFlight, FBX, OpenSceneGraph
    • Standards
    • VBS3
  • Complex road networks including bridges
  • Global airports using real-world data of runways, markings, lighting...

Together Calytrix and TrianGraphics are developing new techniques to reduce the complexity and cost of terrain generation for all classes of users. For more information please contact Calytrix at [email protected] and TrianGraphics at [email protected]
