Presagis Awarded Boeing Contract
Presagis, Montreal-based provider of modeling, simulation and embedded display graphics software, was awarded a contract from Boeing to provide its Lyra image generator system to support the development of the next-generation Apache helicopter simulator (AH-64D) at Boeing’s Mesa, Ariz. facility. Boeing will use Lyra in its new Block III Apache Engineering Development Simulator (EDS), the virtual simulation of the Apache weapon system. The system, Presagis said, enhances the Block III Apache simulator, including realistic rendering of special and environment effects, weather states and rotor effects, as well as entity and large-area terrain management features. Boeing will deploy the Lyra Sensors image generator, which allows the simulator to generate infrared and night-vision-goggle simulations.
