The latest version of this end-to-end solution includes hundreds of product enhancements designed to expedite application development for training, operations and simulation analysis. Presagis' M&S Suite 13 saves users time and money by seamlessly uniting 3D modeling, terrain generation, simulation and visualization software into one tightly integrated package. Presagis serves market leaders in aerospace and defense, public safety and security, critical infrastructure, transportation, and academia.

Typically 60 per cent to 80 per cent of project budgets are spent on integrating disparate homegrown and third-party solutions. With its unique features, M&S Suite 13 enables users to create simulation content and scenarios faster while achieving greater realism and better performance – all within a development environment that is easier to use and more tightly integrated. Its toolset provides an open, scalable, and reusable M&S environment. Additionally, new licensing options offer customers the commercial flexibility they need.

"Our customers are increasingly looking for ways to lower the costs associated with developing their simulation applications and consolidate the number of tools they use in order to focus efforts solely on their core businesses," said Stephane Blondin, vice president, Product Management and Marketing at Presagis. "M&S Suite 13 was developed based on input gathered from client surveys, user groups and beta programs, which streamlined development and produced superior simulation-based applications for training, operations and analysis."

Components of Presagis' M&S Suite 13 include:


—  Creator – State of the art 3D modeling: The modernized user interface
    with fully customizable desktop expedites 3D model development by making
    it faster to build, modify, and validate models.

—  Terra Vista – Terrain generation simplified: A completely redesigned
    user interface simplifies the terrain generation process via a logical
    and step-by-step workflow. Terra Vista 13's novel approach to database
    creation enables customers to build terrain databases faster than ever

—  STAGE – Faster scenario generation and more out-of-the-box platforms:
    Including more than fifty new civilian and military platforms and a new
    auto-population tool, STAGE provides a complete simulation development
    environment. STAGE 13 also features a new STAGE Lite version and a range
    of optional modules to meet a wider range of commercial project

—  Vega Prime – Visualization sharpened: More realism than ever is made
    possible through enhanced rendering performance, more light points,
    depth pass and 3D clouds. In addition, Vega Prime 13 now natively
    supports the distributed interactive simulation (DIS) and high-level
    architecture (HLA) communication protocols, as well as the CIGI standard
    as part of the base product.
