MetaVR is a privately held small virtual business that develops software and 3D content for building and rendering 3D simulated environments. The 3D environments are primarily used for military simulation training in systems that range from desktops to immersive domes. Since our inception, the company maintains no formal physical corporate presence rather all employees work from small home offices communicating via virtual private networks with a centralized leased data center acting as the cloud.

From the very beginning, we have focused on developing software for off-the-shelf Windows computers, Microsoft DirectX graphics environment, and the latest commercial game-based technologies to offer 3D real-time simulated visualization of the real world.

Our main goal is to provide the best, cost-effective, real-time simulation software products for warfighter training. We specialize in building and rendering geographically accurate 3D virtual terrain from real-world imagery, elevation data, and any available geospatial vector data. While striving to improve the quality of realism in simulation at the level of terrain detail needed for high-fidelity realism in contiguous air-to-ground or ocean-based simulation training exercises.

Our Virtual Reality Scene Generator™ (VRSG™) image generator, 3D terrain generation tools, and 3D terrain and 3D models are used mainly by U.S. Armed Forces and several NATO partners for applications such as flight simulators, UAS/RPA trainers, mission planning and rehearsal training, joint fires and close air support JTAC simulation training, and urban operations training.
