Vortex Studio delivers high-fidelity vehicle dynamics and equipment simulations

Globally, military training budgets are tightening while requirements to deliver cost-effective, high-quality training are increasing.

Vortex Studio is a COTS real-time simulation platform offering high-fidelity modeling for military training applications including ground vehicles, heavy equipment and maritime operations. It is an efficient tool for rapidly building, testing and validating simulation content and is simple to integrate into existing simulator frameworks or game-engines.

Driving Simulators

Rapidly build experiential training for drivers both on and off-road with built-in, high-fidelity vehicle models.

  • Tracked and wheeled vehicles, any configuration, with trailers and weapon systems.
  • Advanced tire-track and ground interaction models
  • Complete power train, suspension, steering and braking systems modelling

Logistics Simulation for military applications

Logistics & Heavy Equipment

With core capabilities and subject mater expertise in construction and logistics equipment training, there is no better solution.

  • Lifting and earthmoving equipment simulation for Army Engineering
  • Logistics, maritime lifting and port equipment training
  • Integrated visual-simulation platform designed for equipment training

Maritime Operations

Naval training can involve topside deck equipment, launch and recovery, subsea robotics or towing applications.

  • Combine mechanical dynamics, hydrodynamics, and cable simulation to simulate operations at sea
  • Simulate deck and top-side equipment such as cranes, launch and recovery systems
  • Integrated wave and hydrodynamics models with optional high-fidelity vessel dynamics
