Quantum 3D displayed here the ExpeditionDI wearable simulator, also known as 'immersive dismounted infantry training platform'; the system was recently ordered by the U.S. Army to help preparing U.S. forces for missions to foreign theaters. The $50 million contract was awarded to Intelligent Decisions, where Quantum as a subcontractor, is expected to deliver several thousands systems over 18 months. The evaluation of the trial batches is scheduled to begin at Ft. Bennings in January 2012, supporting the Army's Force Generation (ARFORGEN) cycle.
