UNIGINE Rescue Helicopter Demo Breathes New Life for the Simulation Industry

UNIGINE Corp. sets a new visual standard in the simulation and training industry with a preview of its next-generation technology demo. The project has the cutting-edge UNIGINE Engine under the hood and showcases a simulation of a rescue helicopter operation with an extreme level of detail while running on consumer-level hardware.

The preview was demonstrated for the first time in May at ITEC 2013 where it ran flawlessly on a single NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN card handling 3 independent Full HD (1080p) viewports.

Key Features of the Demo

  • Open space area of 262 by 262 kilometers
  • Real geospatial data
  • Double precision of coordinates
  • Urban terrain simulation
  • Dynamic weather and day/night cycle
  • Large visibility distance of 40 kilometers
  • Extremely detailed close-up view

The environment is very diverse and includes greenwood, coniferous forests, fields, rocks, ocean, shoreline, etc. The high level of immersion is achieved through a number of state-of-the-art visual technologies such as dynamic sky, volumetric clouds, sun shafts, DOF, ambient occlusion, and much more.

The demo supports Windows, Linux and Mac OS X and the final version to be released in December to coincide with I/ITSEC 2013 will showcase even more breathtaking capabilities of the UNIGINE Engine.

About UNIGINE Engine

UNIGINE Engine provides an unprecedented level of immersion due to unique mix of cutting-edge graphical technologies with features required specifically for serious games, training and simulation (such as double precision of coordinates, multi-channel rendering, zone-based streaming, stereo 3D, edge blending, non-linear image mapping, etc).

Because of a comprehensive set of these out-of-the-box capabilities, it is successfully used in over a hundred projects worldwide: military simulation and training (naval and subsea, fixed wing aircraft, rotary wing, AFV), architectural visualization, urban planning, railroad simulation and training, mining, product visualization, merchandizing research, CAD, historical reconstruction, medical simulation, VR education.
