BAE Systems among roster of companies using NGRAIN platform to rapidly create virtual training and operations support applications

We designed the Production Suite based on years of our own experience meeting the demands of a booming new market and tight customer timelines.

Orlando, FL – I/ITSEC – December 4th, 2012 – NGRAIN®, the leading provider of interactive 3D simulation software and solutions for maintenance training and support, today announced that BAE Systems, AEgis Technologies, PulseDefence, and ST Kinetics have selected the NGRAIN Production Suite for the rapid development of interactive 3D applications. Systems integrators and simulation developers headquartered in Europe, North America and Asia are now using the development platform to create virtual task training and operations support applications.

“In the past, 3D application development was cumbersome, complex, and expensive. We designed the Production Suite based on years of our own experience meeting the demands of a booming new market and tight customer timelines. With the NGRAIN Production Suite, optimized for a studio environment, organizations can easily meet new demands, speed development and become 3D capable,” says Keith Pollock, Senior Director, Global Channel & Strategic Partnerships, NGRAIN.

The Production Suite is a software development platform that enables artists, animators and digital media developers to drive efficiency when collaborating on shared deliverables. The Solutions Builders in the Production Suite allow for the creation of full applications by setting parameters and providing context data around the interactive 3D model. The platform also includes plug-in efficiency tools, solutions builders, sample code and conversion tools to accelerate key tasks. The result is shorter development times.

The platform also includes NGRAIN Producer® Pro —a 3D authoring tool designed for professional users —which reduces the time and complexity involved in creating 3D animations, real-time practice tasks, fluid flows, equipment parts constraints, and more.

At the heart of NGRAIN is the the 3KO® (3D Knowledge Object™) file, a 3D digital model that contains and visually communicates knowledge about the system it represents. Each 3KO is optimized for web deployment and is based on NGRAIN’s technology, which dramatically compresses complex volume graphics datasets. For example, before conversion to the NGRAIN format, an outboard engine model with 880 parts has a file size of 233 MB. The NGRAIN file size of the same model is 11.9 MB.

With the Production Suite, organizations can leverage NGRAIN’s unique voxel technology, which is based on a series of discrete points in space, and does not require any manual geometry simplification or polygon reduction.
