Quantum3D receives Lockheed Martin Aeronautics order for Mantis 3D Real-time Scene Management software

Quantum3D, Inc., a leading provider of visual computing solutions for government and commercial applications, announced today that it has received an order from Lockheed Martin Aeronautics for its Mantis Real-Time Scene Management software.

Quantum3D’s Mantis software is a powerful simulation application, providing fixed- and rotary-wing flight, ground vehicle, tank, mission rehearsal, and sensor simulation, as well as simulation of a wide range of other commercial and military real-time 3D environments.

The Mantis software ordered by Lockheed Martin will equip their Simulation Systems Integration Labs at Fort Worth, Texas, Marietta, Ga., and Palmdale, Calif.

The Labs provide engineering simulation services to internal and external customers for development of control laws and avionics, verification testing of operational flight programs, analysis of lethality and survivability, and business development. The SimSIL facilities support Lockheed Martin’s F-22, F-35, F-16, C-130, and C-5 platforms.

“Lockheed Martin’s decision to expand its Mantis footprint is a testament to both the scope and integrity of Mantis’ extraordinary real-time 3D scene management capabilities,” said Arthur Yan, president, Quantum3D. “As the complexities of global defense and commercial aerospace increase, Quantum3D is committed to providing the highest-quality, most powerful, effective and cost-efficient simulation solutions anywhere in the world.”

Quantum3D’s Mantis software renders highly realistic, real-time, out-the-window and sensor scenes for fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft, ground vehicles, and sea-borne platforms, and is used for training, mission rehearsal, and engineering simulation.

Financial terms of this transaction have not been announced.
