UNIGINE Bell 206 is "The Most Impressive Simulator" at I/ITSEC 2013

Orlando, FL - December 2-5, 2013 - Orange Country Convention Center

As a result of unique developments in the 3D visualization field made by UNIGINE Corp., the rescue Bell 206 helicopter simulator powered by UNIGINE Engine was recognized as the best new generation simulator that uses modern photorealistic 3D graphics technologies.

I/ITSEC (Interservice/Industry Training Simulation & Education Conference) 2013, the world's largest modeling, simulation and training conference, was held in Orlando, FL. More than 500 companies have introduced their developments in defense, medicine, education and training industries. The total number of visitors has exceeded 14,000 people.

Despite the fact that our company has participated with this project for the first time, we have successfully introduced the rescue Bell 206 helicopter simulator based on UNIGINE Sim virtual reality platform. The simulator was developed in cooperation with CogSim Technologies, Canadian company, that granted the hardware part and the helicopter's dynamic model.

A simulator attracted keen interest from developers and exhibitors due to unique graphics solutions. It was represented as a real Bell 206 Ranger helicopter cockpit with the exact reproduction of the controls and dashboard. 6 Full HD monitors provided a visualization system, which reproduced the environment of the National Park Olympia (Washington, USA) in real-time, which is 68 644 km2 of leaf and softwood forests, fields, rocks, oceans, etc. The high level of immersion was achieved by a number of state-of-the-art visual technologies, such as dynamic sky, volumetric clouds, sun shafts, DOF, ambient occlusion, and many others.

Within 4 days spent at the exhibition, our project has received many positive reviews from visitors and potential customers who was interested in further cooperation. The exhibition demonstrated that UNIGINE Corp. once again proven to be the perspective international company on the 3D simulators market.

All of the visitors concurred:
"This is the most impressive simulator throughout the show!"


The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) promotes cooperation growth for the military forces, industrial corporations, research communities and various representative institutions for the purpose of improving the quality of education and educational programs, identifying common training issues and developing multiservice programs.
