It lets users experience simulations with high-quality visuals, from desktop to advanced multi-channel visual systems.

Vortex Studio also includes several specialized simulation and visualisation modules: Vortex Vehicle Systems, Vortex Cable Systems and Vortex Earthwork Systems. Vortex Vehicle Systems enables the modelling of both wheeled and tracked ground vehicles and heavy equipment based on engineering specifications. It simulates individual powertrain components, steering and suspension, allowing correct emergent behavior based on vehicle properties. It accurately simulates vehicle-terrain interactions, such as skidding, fishtailing, rollover and collision.

Vortex Studio provides a highly-realistic virtual driving experience and better training outcomes.

Vortex Cable Systems allows the addition of cables, ropes, chains, winches and pulleys to equipment, enabling the simulation of ground- and ship-based cranes, as well as towing or recovery operations and robotic tethers.

Vortex Earthwork Systems simulates earthmoving operations such as digging, trenching, filling, etc. It allows the addition of tools such as blades and buckets to vehicles, and interaction with the soil. The dynamic terrain simulation is fully integrated with the Vortex Studio game-quality visual system and is unique in the industry.

Vortex Studio is backed by CM Labs’ dedicated team of military vehicle dynamics experts, engineers, and 3D software specialists — all focused on delivering the accuracy and flexibility you need to support skills training, operations planning, engineering development, and other simulation projects.
