Advanced Technologies Division

Headquartered in Orlando, Florida, the the Advanced Technologies Division (ATD) of SDS International with a field office in Connecticut. The ATD specializes in state-of-the-art PC-based visuals/sensor simulations and training simulation products for military and commercial customers.

The division performs extensive R&D and provides R&D expertise and support services directly to government and prime contractors. As a small business, we have rapidly become recognized as an industry leader in the development of cost-effective, high-fidelity, PC-Based Image Generation (PC-IG) systems for application on emerging and legacy simulators.

PC-Based Reconfigurable simulators, High-fidelity PC-Based IGs, and associated high-fidelity geo-specific, photo-realistic databases, and world-class real-time 3D models represent our core business areas.
