Hyundai Rotem Deploys Concurrent ImaGen(TM) Visual Servers for K-Series Tank Platoon Simulator Program
ATLANTA, Feb. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Concurrent Real-Time (NASDAQ: CCUR), a leading provider of real-time Linux® solutions for mission-critical applications, today announced that Hyundai Rotem, a worldwide leader in ground weapon systems, has deployed 176 ImaGen(TM) visual servers powered by the RedHawk(TM) Linux real-time operating system. The ImaGen servers will be used in the Phase I deployment of image generators for the K-Series Tank Platoon Simulator Program. The full deployment is expected to include approximately 350 ImaGen servers over one year.
Hyundai Rotem is the main contractor of the K-Series Tank Platoon Simulator Program, which is the first virtual tactical tank simulation trainer developed under the Defense R&D Program of Korea Defense Acquisition Program Administration. Hyundai Rotem has played a critical role in strengthening South Korean defenses by developing the K1/K1A1 tank and its family of vehicles.
KCEI Co., Ltd., a value-added reseller based in South Korea, helped orchestrate the deal for Concurrent. “We initially selected Concurrent during the program’s development phase in March 2008 when we evaluated multiple PC-image generation systems,” said Hyun Joon Ko, president, KCEI Co. Ltd. “We found Concurrent’s ImaGen to be the best technology and value available on the market. We chose Concurrent for the deployment phase on the strength of their latest state-of-the-art IG platforms and their outstanding technical support.”
Each tank simulator’s ImaGen configuration will include eight channels rendered by award-winning Presagis® Vega Prime® visualization software, utilizing the latest NVIDIA® graphics technology. The integrated solution based on RedHawk Linux real-time OS and Vega Prime imaging software offers a high-fidelity, commercial-off-the-shelf PC image generation system with unprecedented jitter-free performance.
“Hyundai Rotem’s selection of Concurrent for the K-Series Tank Platoon Simulator platform, through our partner KCEI, demonstrates our ability to provide and support state-of-the-art commercial-off-the-shelf, Linux-based visualization solutions,” said Ken Jackson, Concurrent vice president, Real-Time. “KCEI is a respected supplier of PC-based visualization solutions. Our win will extend Concurrent’s real-time visualization capabilities in South Korea and surrounding markets served by KCEI.”
KCEI also has a service contract with Hyundai Rotem to support the K-Series Tank Platoon Simulator Program, with Concurrent providing second tier support to KCEI for Concurrent’s ImaGen visual servers.
