Ozark, AL., July 16, 2019
CATI Training Systems, please visit CATI at the 2019 Fort Rucker Aviation Industry Day,
July 24-25, 2019 at THE LANDING on Fort Rucker AL. CATI has teamed with SGB Enterprises Inc.
and Immersive Display Systems Inc. to create a highly capable, low-cost Flight Training Device
(FTD) demonstration. The FTD will feature a UH-60M single seat cockpit complimented by a four-meter,
six-channel dome display system. Visuals will feature CATI X-IG® image generator running the
PLW Modelworks’ San Francisco database. Additionally, CATI will showcase our latest solutions for
training, simulation, synthetic environments, and virtual reality featuring X-IG® Version 4.2 and a
Virtual Reality (VR) helmet-mounted display system, the SA147/S provided by SA Photonics.
To schedule a meeting or demonstration, please contact Vincent Hill, VP of Business Development.

About PLW Modelworks
PLW Modelworks utilizes proprietary software to create industry leading 3D city
models from any type of imagery provided by imagery providers around the globe.
PLW city model buildings are accurate in location, structure, dimension, and detail.
Buildings are represented as individually selectable, individually attributed objects.
Flat surfaces and crisp edges define the true 3D building shape in a precise and lightweight
representation for better performance. Highresolution texture mapping presents each building
with its actual appearance, providing the instant recognition essential for applications where real-world
accuracy matters. PLW Modelworks will work with you to provide a custom 3D model solution that
exceeds your expectations.
About CATI Training Systems
CATI is headquartered in Ozark, AL, was initially incorporated in 1992 as Carmel
Applied Technologies, Inc. CATI entered the competitive visual system providers
market in 1997 with an OpenGL™ Silicon Graphics (SGI) based image generator,
X–IG®. CATI Training Systems continues to provide engineering services and
products for government, commercial, and civilian organizations around the
Today, CATI′s image generator solutions and UAS Training devices are all PC–
based. CATI′s image generators are specifically designed around industrystandard
OpenGL™, a high-performance graphics Application Programming
Interface (API), and OpenFlight™, the 3D standard format for the visual simulation
The open design of X–IG® and X–Gen®, run on 100% Commercial-Off the
Shelf (COTS) PC–based hardware and software. This allows us to offer high-performance,
versatile capabilities for various types of training, testing, and
experimentation. X-IG® and its suite of associated tools and programs offer
superior image fidelity, realism, and ease of integration with most simulation
Every system CATI delivers provides unmatched ease of use, open architecture,
COTS tools, and flexible interface options as well as low acquisition, overhead,
and life cycle support costs.
