Quantum3D ExpeditionDI Selected by U.S. Marine Corps for Immersive Infantry Simulation, Mission Rehearsal and Training Program at USMC Warfighting Lab

Quantum3D ExpeditionDI COTS Man-Wearable Immersive Platform for Un-Tethered Dismounted Infantry Training Combined With Bohemia Interactive's VBS2 Software Supported by U.S. Army RDECOM STTC and CG2 Selected by USMC for Immersive Infantry Simulation for Organic Rehearsal and Training (I2SORT) at USMC Warfighting Lab

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - November 26, 2007) - I/ITSEC 2007 -- Quantum3D®, Inc., a leading provider of COTS, open architecture, realtime visual computing solutions, today announced at I/ITSEC 2007 that the Company's ExpeditionDI™ Immersive, Man-Wearable, Un-tethered Open Architecture, COTS Platform for Dismounted Infantry synthetic environment training and mission rehearsal has been selected by the U.S. Marine Corps for use in the Immersive Infantry Simulation for Organic Rehearsal and Training (I2SORT) Program at the USMC Warfighting Lab in Quantico, Virginia. I2SORT, which will employ Bohemia Interactive's Virtual Battlespace™ 2 (VBS2™) software and synthetic environments, is supported by the U.S. Army RDECOM STTC and CG2®, a wholly owned subsidiary of Quantum3D.

I2SORT is designed to provide scenario-based training for Dismounted Infantry across a range of virtual training environments including Mobile Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT). I2SORT is intended to complement live training by providing elements of the Contemporary Operating Environment that are too difficult or expensive to replicate at home station training.

For I2SORT, the ExpeditionDI systems employ wireless connectivity to provide un-tethered, man-wearable, fully immersive, individual and collective Dismounted Infantry training and mission rehearsal capabilities. The I2SORT program will utilize a squad of thirteen (13) un-tethered, field-ready ExpeditionDI-based infantry simulators to research the application of immersive, virtual reality training as an integral part of a Marine infantry unit's organic training capability. The I2SORT synthetic environment and runtime software is based on VBS2, the state-of-the-art simulation software package developed by Bohemia Interactive®, a leading supplier of COTS game-based virtual environment training software and solutions for a wide range of applications.

"The USMC's selection of ExpeditionDI and VBS2 for I2SORT demonstrates the flexibility and power of COTS, open architecture solutions for training and mission rehearsal applications," said Ross Q. Smith, Quantum3D Co-founder and President. "All of us at Quantum3D are pleased to be working with the USMC, RDECOM STTC and Bohemia Interactive in support of I2SORT and the USMC's employment of ExpeditionDI for deployable, immersive, man-worn, un-tethered mounted and dismounted infantry training and mission rehearsal."
