French Air Force using Cesium for Unreal for VR helicopter training

The French Air Force is augmenting training for helicopter pilots, crew members, and medics with VR simulations using Cesium for Unreal. The French Air Force’s Heli Lab taps into the service’s drone imagery and videos of an area of interest, using Reality Capture to build that part of the world in 3D. The team adds these high-res insets to Cesium World Terrain and Photorealistic 3D Tiles, accessed via Cesium ion SaaS and streamed as 3D Tiles to Unreal Engine; the lab is now shifting to Cesium ion Self-Hosted, to securely host classified areas.
