KaTron’s TERRAtron™ is a next-generation Terrain Simulation Server software that provides terrain database services for all kinds of simulation applications. TERRAtron™ processes very large scale gridded elevation data and enables real-time queries on these data.

TERRAtron™ is the perfect solution for applications requiring real-time terrain analysis/information like sensor, communication and navigation simulaton.

TERRAtron™ processes terrain databases based on industry standard formats like OpenFlight and NIMA DTED and converts these to a triangular grid format without any loss of precision.

This enables optimized terrain loading and multiple simultaneous real-time terrain query operations
