This agreement will allow Immersion, a partner of choice for Esterline, to expand its innovative solutions portfolio through new visual simulation products and offer its customers a new line of immersive systems – the TREALITY TD-Series. Combining mobility, cost-efficiency and performance, this Esterline product targets the simulation and training market, and military operations, in particular.
According to Mark Saturno, vice president, global sales, Esterline Simulation Visual Systems, ‘’Since its creation in 1994, Immersion has associated itself with the most innovative and high performing players to market the best virtual reality, visual simulation and augmented reality technologies.

The TREALITY® TD-Series is a unique and innovative line of visual simulation products. This dome immersive system offers many benefits, including portability as the number one advantage. Easy to deliver and install because of its light structure, no external assistance is required for its deployment. This new product is designed to fit in an ISO container, making installation possible in any location.
The second benefit is related to the quality of simulation. It is as close to real operations as possible, with a 220º field of vision, coupled with a semi-rigid display technology that delivers optimal viewing. This mobile immersive system has multiple applications, including flight simulation (aircraft, helicopter, etc.; driving simulation (cars, trucks and public transport vehicles); ground warfare and military operations simulation; naval operations simulation; and mining operations simulation.
Immersion markets three models of the TREALITY® TD-Series line: the TD322, TD350 and TD522. Each product includes three to five video projectors. Main differences are related to resolution and vision field.
