Transas Makes Breakthrough In Visualization Technologies

Wednesday, April 17, 2002
Transas is introducing the next generation of its visual presentation system based on the new Transas visualization technology.

The new software, which has been named Seagull_Vis 4000, represents the synthetic environment in the most realistic form, and also includes a number of advanced effects designed specifically for marine applications developed to further improve the efficiency of simulator-based training.

In this visualization version, extensive work has been performed to achieve the best possible quality of the running time representation application using the latest developments in the OpenGL technology.

Specifically, the new Transas visualization system incorporates a super-quality 3-D sea model with dynamic bump mapping surface texturing.

In Seagull_Vis 4000, the visibility of space objects is naturally influenced by pre-set general meteorological visibility conditions, such as fog, rain, and snow; as well as the pre-set cloud density. Moreover, the sky representation has gained additional realism thanks to new fractal methods of cloud layer density modeling.

Atmospheric precipitation now includes realistic 3-D rain and snow models with pre-set or dynamically changed speed and density.
