Inspired Engineering Meets Applied Physics
Designed to support operational requirements for both air and ground simulation systems, physion™ provides a cost-effective platform for visualization that bridges the gaming and modeling & simulation domains. Utilizing DirectX 11 methods tailored to take maximum advantage of modern Graphics Processing Units, physion™ provides a high-fidelity rendering capability integrated with standards from modeling and simulation elements such as the Common Image Generator Interface (CIGI), OpenFlight terrain databases and data content modeled using standard Commercial-Off-The-Shelf tools. Using the Windows operating system environment, physion™ executes in a low cost, standards-based configuration.
Rendering a virtual visualization of a synthetic digital environment has evolved to be a critical component of a high-fidelity simulation in all domains. With the increased emphasis on ground-based simulations which have requirements for interoperability and interactions approaching real world levels, simulations now have to consider the third sense of touch and the interactions which occur between two physical objects.
This added complexity has created a need for increased definitions in the environmental data, and more critically, the processing system for that data which provides the appropriate reactions in the digital environment.
Finally. The product that integrates the Havok technology used in gaming (such as Call of Duty, Saints Row IV, Assassin's Creed, Halo) and film (The Matrix, X-Men, Harry Potter) into a physics-enhanced, Common Image Generator Interface (CIGI)-compliant Image Generator (IG) for military simulation and training.
Ever-increasing demands for higher fidelity simulation requires the capacity to adapt and grow as technology progresses. physion™ was designed to provide that capability - to combine the ability to use legacy infrastructure with that use of the most advanced technologies.

The content management and operational integration of physion™ is formed using industry standards which allow for the reuse of content by other systems. Operational integration is based on the CIGI standard and this integration allows for inter-operation with other systems.
Below is a small sampling of the capabilities of physion™:
Supporting industry-standard interfaces and data structures is a cornerstone of the physion™ design. physion™ makes use of available content elements from existing infrastructures designed to support the modeling and simulation domain. Content for use in physion™ can be translated from the OpenFlight formatted databases, models developed with 3D Studio Max or Maya and incorporates leading third-party capabilities such as SpeedTree.
The processing environment which physion™ provides brings physics interactions to the modeling and simulation efforts at an effective cost. Impacts due to detonations, forces applied from vehicles, and interactions with the first person simulation all add a level of realism expected by the next generation of simulation users. The application of physion™ provides this physics-enhanced realism to the modeling and simulation industry.
Nova Technologies can quickly adapt physion™ to meet any user needs – to add or adjust functionality and to integrate this physics-enhanced IG into any CIGI-compliant simulation. Nova Technologies even offers a process where the user/customer can add or modify capability of the product to meet unique and specific needs for an end user’s application. This service allows for development of new 3D content and functionality. Using the Integrated Product Development process, the user is involved from inception to acceptance and delivery of any change.
3-D content such as Databases and Models are provided with each delivery of physion™. As new content is added to the inventory users subscribed to maintenance receive the new content as part of their support agreement. Additional 3-D content can be developed under a special services agreement. Content developed for a specific user can be restricted to that unique user if required by the customer.
physion™ has been integrated into systems receiving a successful DIACAP certification.
