TEWKSBURY, Mass. , June 26, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- Raytheon Company's (NYSE: RTN) Solipsys has released a three dimensional extension for its Tactical Display Framework (TDF 3D), a real-time visualization capability used in command and control, homeland defense, surveillance and air traffic management systems.

TDF 3D enhances the Tactical Display Framework software product by displaying tracks, history, sensors, overlays, pairing lines and imagery in three dimensions.

"TDF 3D provides the user with powerful controls to navigate the 3-D view of the battlespace," said Mark Trenor , president of Raytheon Solipsys. "With TDF 3D, the operator can offset, slide and fly through the view, orbit the area of interest, zoom, and auto track objects."

TDF has been deployed since 1997. Written in Java for maximum portability, it has become the standard in command and control display systems used in many military applications, including the U.S. Air Force AWACS (Airborne Warning and Control System aircraft), U.S. Central Command Air Forces' Battle Control Center, the U.S. Navy's Zumwalt-class destroyer, and the U.S. Army JLENS (Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System) program. TDF 3D ensures the continued warfighter demand for TDF-based systems by bringing three dimensions to strategic and tactical situational awareness.
