MetaVR develops PC-based commercial software for military simulation and training, featuring high-speed 3D visualization, 3D content, and creation of networked virtual worlds using real-world data. Our real-time visual systems provide the fidelity of geospecific simulation with game-quality graphics. Users can build high-fidelity virtual worlds (from photographic imagery, elevation and feature data) with our terrain generation tools, add dense culture and pattern-of-life scenarios with our scenario creation tool, and render the resulting geospecific synthetic environments, at 60Hz, with our real-time 3D visualization application, Virtual Reality Scene Generator (VRSG). MetaVR visuals, terrain, and 3D models are used for applications such as UAS trainers, manned flight simulators, mission planning and rehearsal, close air support JTAC simulation training, and urban operations training.

FACNAV is a multi-role Digitally Aided Close Air Support (DACAS) and Digitally Aided Fire Support (DAFS) kit. FACNAV has been designed to meet the changing requirements of ground troops, while CAS functionality provides JTACs with the most advanced data link capabilities available today, e.g. VMF, L16 and AFAPD. FACNAV also provides a wide range of radio, sensor and weapon systems Integration both for ground based and airborne assets to help minimize third party collateral damage and avoid blue-on-blue incidents. Utilizing near real-time ISR information and analysis and mensuration tool integration allows for more accurate decision aking. FACNAV was first deployed in 2007. Teleplan Globe AS is based in Norway. For more information see www.teleplanglobe.no.
