DiSTI® Awarded over $1M in contracts to create PC-Simulations for the U.S. Navy GL Studio™ will be used to create high fidelity graphics for U.S. Navy trainers
ORLANDO, FL, July 8, 2004 - The DiSTI Corporation, a small Orlando based business, has recently been awarded two contracts worth over $1,000,000 to create high fidelity graphics for two U.S. Navy trainers. The first contract was awarded by L-3 Government Services Inc. (GSI), for an E-6B Weapon System Trainer (WST) and the second contract was awarded by American Systems Corporation (ASC) for an F/A-18 C/D Simulated Aircraft Maintenance Trainer (SAMT).
Both contractors selected DiSTI's award-winning GL Studio software to create real-time 3-Dimensional interactive graphics for student user interfaces. "The selection of GL Studio for these programs solidifies the confidence the Navy and their contractors have in the use of GL Studio." said Joe Swinski, President of DiSTI. GL Studio is a rapid application development tool for creating photo-realistic, interactive simulations of instrumentation, controls and electronic displays such as those found on modern military aircraft and modern maintenance facilities.
Both contracts rely on the use of GL Studio's high fidelity graphics, support for embedded simulations and touch screen monitors to replace more costly hardware based Training Test Equipment (TTE). This new technology provides the reliability and performance on economical PCs to provide top-shelf training for our sailors and airmen. "The Navy is seeing a great cost savings with the use of PC simulation over TTE. These high fidelity simulations are simpler to build, easier and more economical to distribute and never break down." Swinski added.
DiSTI is a software development company providing a wide range of software and services to support the development of advanced visual applications. Our solutions allow our customers to develop human machine interfaces for embedded systems, maintenance trainers, courseware, and real time visual applications. DiSTI's mission is to simplify the development of human machine interfaces with tools developers can use produce photo-realistic graphics faster and cheaper then ever before. DiSTI's products are used by the titans of industry including Anteon, Boeing, General Dynamics, L-3 Communications, Lockheed Martin, Rockwell Collins, SAIC, INDRA Thales, and SAAB to name a few. DiSTI is headquarters are in Orlando, FL, neighboring US Army PEO STRI, NAVAIR and University of Central Florida research facilities. GL Studio is sold directly and through its distributors in North America, Europe, South America, Australia and Asia.
