Lockheed Martin enhances precision in virtual training

Lockheed Martin said it has launched Prepar3D® v3, allowing users to build or experience advanced simulation environments and tools that simplify development and augment the training experience.

Prepar3D v3 enhancements simplify training scenario creation by employing a Simdirector drag-and-drop technique. The user interface is also improved, with expanded gauge and panel training through Autodesk® Scaleform® support. A new avatar mode enables users to experience the simulated environment in the third or first person for increased realism and situational awareness.

Prepar3D continues to partner with hundreds of third party developers and partners in an active community that continuously enhances the software. Prepar3D v3 features memory and performance improvements to provide greater fidelity and increased realism. Users can now utilize next generation hardware to achieve a heightened experience that was never before possible.
