Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) alongside stand partners will showcase a range of training solutions built on the BISim product line for land, sea and air use cases at ITEC 2019 (stand ID40). The International Forum for the Military Simulation, Training and Education Community (ITEC) is being held in Stockholm, Sweden, at the Stockholmsmässan from May 14 to 16.
Existing BISim products serve as the base for the latest developments made in partnership with partners TerraSim, SimCentric Technologies, QuantaDyn Corporation and Novatech, and feature hardware provided by AFV Sim and Schenker. Demonstrations at ITEC 2019 will utilize BISim technology as the simulation platform for a range of new capabilities for different 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.
In addition to the latest training solutions, BISim will also be demonstrating advances made to their new cloud-enabled, whole-earth simulation engine, Virtual Battlespace Synthetic Training Environment (VBS STE), which supports future military training requirements. VBS STE was first demoed in November 2018 at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) as technology being developed through funded research and development for One World Terrain. BISim is under contract to prototype further U.S. Army STE concepts.
Some of the specific demonstrations available at the BISim booth include BISim’s new whole-earth simulation engine VBS STE demoed on Schenker’s laptops, as well as a VR-based Part-Task Flight Trainer, developed for the U.S. Navy and leveraging VBS Blue IG, BISim’s 3D whole-earth image generator.
