Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) has released VBS Blue IG, its high-performance, CIGI-compliant, 3D whole-earth image generator.
With the release of VBS Blue IG, the company's second major product, BISim aims to use game-based technology and its knowledge of military customers' needs to disrupt the image generator market.
VBS Blue IG is a 3D planetary simulation that is cloud-enabled, geo-specific with round-earth procedural rendering and editing. It is designed for all applicable use cases from land, air and sea, including multichannel IG configurations as well as virtual reality-based training applications. VBS Blue IG's uniquely versatile engine is able to provide new training capability for military and defense organizations to visualize and rehearse complex joint military operations anywhere in the world.
VBS Blue IG has already been demonstrated for a range of different simulation and training uses including a virtual reality-based flight and air crew trainer for the US Navy, a multichannel simulation for JTAC/FAC training, developed in collaboration with system integrator QuantaDyn Corp., and an augmented reality flight simulation concept demonstrator developed with TRU Simulation + Training Inc. VBS Blue technology is also used for research and demonstrations related to the US Army's synthetic training environment One World Terrain project for rapid modeling of geo-specific representations of megacities in synthetic environments designed for cloud-based collective training.
