The UK's Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) has secured a £7.2 million contract with Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) to deliver DVS2 - a training environment capable of simulating multiple military environments and operations. Personnel will be able to train anywhere in the world, across multiple terrains and with a range of weapons and equipment.
Front-Line Commands are set to receive the game-based simulation for immersive training opportunities that can be used individually, as a team or for training alongside NATO allies. DVS2 has already begun its rollout across UK military sites home and abroad. With over 60 countries using similar or compatible technologies, including 14 NATO allied countries, UK military personnel can train with their peers and other militaries around the world in a secure training network. By using this technology, the Scottish and Northern Irish Yeomanry successfully conducted manoeuvres and Fires training with the Australian Light Cavalry over 9,000 miles away.
DVS2 has high flexible networking options for distributed training and integrating with external simulators, such as complex flight or gunnery simulators.
