3D perception Delivers 3 Atlas Visual Display Systems to Saab Gripen E Test and Evaluation Simulators

Hvalstad, Norway, 1 Dec 2021 – 3D perception AS (“3DP”) today announced the delivery of 3 Atlas Northstar™ visual display systems (VDS) to the defense and security company Saab.

The newly delivered display systems are a turn-key solution comprised of 3DP’s latest generation nBox+ display processor, a modular dome screen, and four CompactView 4K40 high-resolution 4K projectors with night scenario capabilities. The high-resolution and completely seamless VDS is automatically aligned via sensors embedded in the dome screen, expediting and simplifying maintenance procedures. 

The advanced upgrade configuration is a result of a close cooperation between Saab’s team of system architects and 3D perception from concept to final design and implementation to meet the demanding standards for training of pilots as well as serving as a testbed for future editions of the Gripen C/D system.

“Working with 3D perception has been really good,” said Saabs Program Manager Daniel Ohlsson. “Their system delivered on all requirements, and they continue to support us through our integration process.”

3D perception’s Northstar Simulation Display System 
3D perception’s advanced Northstar™ visual display solution combines an advanced rack-mount multi-projector display processor, nBox™, with 3DP Certified Projectors™ and image auto-alignment technologies in the form of Aurora™ sensor-instrumented smart screens, or StarScan™, a screen-independent, precision 3D scanner and imager. Northstar is Image Generator (IG) independent and requires no software on or modification of the IG.  

The company is demonstrating their Northstar technologies from Nov 29th to Dec 2nd in Orlando, Florida at I/ITSEC, the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training conference.
