Lockheed Martin released a virtual training software Sept. 30 which will allow private pilots, commercial organizations, and those in academia to more easily create or experience their own simulated environments and tools.
Prepar3D version 3 (v3) features a SimDirector drag-and-drop method. Another improvement is an enhanced interface featuring extended gauge and panel training which is achieved using Autodesk Scaleform. A newly developed avatar mode immerses users in a third or first person simulated environment which delivers improved realism and situational awareness.
Prepar3D v3 also boasts memory and performance improvements which lead to the increased realism and reliability.
The first version of the PrePar3D was launched in 2010. The full earth simulation allows users to create training exercises in various locations, including suborbital and underwater environments.
Software improvements will routinely be made by Lockheed Martin and the hundreds of third party developers that it is partnering with.
