Solid Terrain Modeling, Inc. and Simthetiq Inc., Fusing the Best of Both Worlds with SolidSim©

December 2, 2013

 Fillmore, CA USA  |  Montreal QC, Canada


Solid Terrain Modeling, Inc. and Simthetiq Inc. today announced the release of their new collaborative product – SolidSim©. Designed to bring together the power of physical terrain modeling with the flexibility of a virtual terrain database, SolidSim© provides both military and non-military operators with a communications tool for improved training,  operational analysis, and planning.


By integrating their expertise and the strengths of their technologies, Solid Terrain Modeling and Simthetiq have enabled the projection of Simthetiq’s accurate and dynamic data – such as object location based on real-time positioning technologies, wind patterns or rich terrain data – onto a physical Solid Terrain Model for improved awareness and decision making.


SolidSim© offers data-fusion and display for any number of training and operational requirements – scaling complex virtual terrains onto an accurate visual cue, distilling complex environmental data and providing greater context and capacity for analysis.


Simthetiq CEO, Vincent Cloutier, said at the announcement: “Our collaboration with STM offers something different to all our clients – we can expand the value of training beyond the virtual world and offer an end-to-end solution that is just as easy to exploit for operations as it is for exercises.” He added: “Simthetiq is very keen to see where this collaboration takes us and the state of modern training and simulation.”


“Because both companies offer best-in-class solutions that cross shared industries, developing SolidSim© was a natural alliance,” said Mark Fisher, CEO of Solid Terrain Modeling. “We’re thrilled to be working alongside Simthetiq on the continuing development of this new product and look forward to pushing the technology forward.”


SolidSim© will be on display at booth #764 during I/ITSEC 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL from 2-5 December. For more information, contact
