Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) and partners will showcase a broad range of training solutions built on the company’s product line for land, sea and air use cases at ITEC 2019 in Stockholm, 14-16 Many.
Existing BISim products serve as the base for the latest developments made in partnership with partners TerraSim, SimCentric Technologies, QuantaDyn and Novatech, featuring hardware from AFV Sim and Schenker. Demonstrations will use BISim technology as the simulation platform for a range of new capabilities for various products and training applications, including a VR flight trainer, high-performance image generator, high-fidelity, part-task gunnery training, and a VR RHIB driver trainer.
“At ITEC we will be demonstrating our suite of integrated technologies along with training solutions to highlight the flexibility of our VBS simulation platform to adapt to the broadest range of training requirements [….] VBS products offer comprehensive cutting-edge technology that military organisations need, to ensure the best possible simulation-based training and readiness preparation of personnel for land, sea and air domains,” commented BISim Chief Product Officer, Cory Kumm.
BISIm will also showcase advances made to its new, cloud-enabled, whole-earth simulation engine, Virtual Battlespace Synthetic Training Environment (VBS STE), which supports future military training requirements. VBS STE was first shown at I/ITSEC in Orlando last November, as technology being developed through funded research and development for One World Terrain. BISim is under contract to prototype further US Army Synthetic Training Environment (STE) concepts.
Specific demonstrations available at the BISim booth include:
• BISim’s new whole-earth simulation engine VBS STE, demonstrated on Schenker laptop;
• A virtual reality (VR)-based part-task flight trainer developed for the US Navy, leveraging VBS Blue IG, BISim’s powerful 3D whole-earth image generator;
• A JTAC trainer created by QuantaDyn Corporation using VBS Blue IG;
• A VR RHIB Trainer developed by Novatech and the University of Portsmouth for the Royal Navy, using BISim’s VBS3;
• A high-fidelity CV9040 trainer developed by BISim with VBS3 for the Swedish Armed Forces.
Additionally, the company’s presence at ITEC includes several presentations and events. Senior Vice President, Product Management, Oliver Arup, will present on the development of cloud-enabled simulation technologies for the US Army’s STE initiative. BISim is also holding a VBS Information Session in which military and industry members are invited to learn about the latest updates to the BISim product line and to hear about upcoming releases.
