Quantum3D®, Inc., (San Jose, Calif.), has joined the Army. The infantry will use the company's ExpeditionDI™ as part of the Virtual Squad Training System (VSTS) deployed at the Battle Command Training Center (BCTC), Schofield Barracks, Hawaii.

The ExpeditionDI systems employ wireless connectivity to provide un-tethered, fully immersive, individual and collective dismounted infantry training and mission rehearsal capabilities. VSTS is designed to provide scenario-based training for dismounted infantry across a range of virtual training environments, including mobile operations in urban terrain. VSTS is intended to complement live training by providing elements of the contemporary operating environment that are too difficult or expensive to replicate at home station training.

The initial VSTS consists of five un-tethered, field-ready soldier simulators that employ Quantum3D ExpeditionDI platforms along with four tethered soldier simulators, a Semi-Automated Force workstation (SAF), a BattleMaster station, an Instructor Operator Station (IOS), a Scenario Authoring station and an After Action Review (AAR) station. The tethered soldier simulators, BattleMaster and SAF stations all use Quantum3D Quicksilver® PC-based Image Generators.

The VSTS virtual environment runtime software for the soldier systems, as well as the BattleMaster IOS, is SVS® from Advanced Interactive Systems®, a leading supplier of virtual training software and solutions for dismounted infantry and first responder applications. The VSTS system is supported and integrated by JTSI, Inc., a small-business provider of information technology services, products and support to the U.S. Government.
