|After 25 years in the simulation industry and an upbeat presence at ITEC Primary Image closed its doors just a few months later in September. A team of core engineers refused to be put down by the unfortunate events suffered by Primary Image and formed a new company, aptly named XPI Simulation, to continue developing Primary Image products. The company is employee owned and committed to supplying what simulation customers ..: top quality, low price, reliable equipment and excellent service.
Alan Davenport (ex-M.D of Primary Image) has taken a role as part-time Chairman with Dave Fulker and Simon Skinner bringing a wealth of simulation experience and technical know-how taking the lead roles as executive directors.
XPI purchased the rights to Fabriano to continue supporting key customers and fulfilling the niche markets that PCs still canít reach. It also purchased the IPR to key products such as the Marshalling simulator and the Driving Sim. Most importantly it acquired the rights to Tempest, its powerful software API. Tempest brings advanced lighting effects, software image warping and new features, soon to be announced, to Fabriano and COTS PC platforms.
Current contracts cover a wide range of prestigious projects from Concorde flight simulation to intelligent traffic behaviour for car driving.
