ATLANTA, 4 Dec. 2007.Concurrent Computer Corp., a provider of time-critical Linux operating systems, integrated software, and computer solutions for mission-critical applications, announced that its ImaGen visual server powered by RedHawk Linux has been selected by Saab Aerosystems of Sweden as the image generator (IG) of choice, to be recommended for visuals in Saab-built simulators including the Gripen simulator program. The company announced that it has received its initial purchase order from Saab on behalf of one of its customers.

"Compared to the other IG solutions we evaluated, Concurrent's ImaGen proved to be the best choice for commercial off-the-shelf-based visual simulation given its high-quality real-time visuals at an economic price," says Jörgen Degerstedt, manager Training Simulators at Saab Aerosystems.

Concurrent ImaGen visual servers provide multiple channels of visualization and graphics performance ideal for applications requiring enhanced realism and the ability to process very large amounts of input data. Typical applications include civil and military simulation and training, mission planning, scientific and medical visualization, architectural design, and energy exploration.
