Bohemia Interactive Simulations at I/ITSEC 2017

Nov 14, 2017

This year at I/ITSEC 2017, Bohemia Interactive Simulations is launching VBS Blue IG, a high-performance, standards-based, 3D whole-earth image generator providing day/night/sensor scenes across multiple synchronized displays to support the full spectrum of land, sea, air and space use cases. Visit BISim and partners at booth #2235 to see live demonstrations of the latest simulation technologies.

Demonstrations at Booth #2235


BISim will showcase a joint operations demo using VBS Blue IG, our new 3D whole-earth image generator. This joint operations scenario involves multiple motion platforms for land and air vehicle simulations integrated with VBS Blue IG and working with the latest commercial off-the-shelf Virtual Reality hardware. VBS Blue IG features deep integration and correlation with VBS3 as a simulation host to support reuse of existing VBS3 content and scenarios. Watch a video showing VBS3 and VBS Blue IG correlation.

VBS Control

VBS Control Editor is an intuitive AI development tool, allowing for rapid development of AI behaviors for VBS3 and, through the Gears framework, other software applications. VBS Control provides full and direct control of AI and is designed to deal with both entity level behaviors as well as higher levels of abstracted behaviors such as squad, platoon or company level. Watch a video.

Artificial intelligence military training



VBS3 provides a virtual training environment for land, air and sea training and mission rehearsal applications. VBS3 is the de facto standard in game-based military simulation and meets hundreds of training use cases. It interoperates with legacy simulations, protecting and extending existing investments in LVC training technologies and also new standards such as Open Source Virtual Reality (OSVR). Visit our Youtube page for more videos.

Operation Blended Warrior

BISim is proud to sponsor Operation Blended Warrior (OBW), I/ITSEC’s collaborative LVC event conducted between U.S. Department of Defense and industry. This is the third year BISim has participated in OBW and VBS Blue IG is one of the virtual simulation environments in use during OBW. Watch the OBW vignettes at booth #449. Read the Playbook.





At I/ITSEC 2017, TerraSim, a BISim company, will demonstrate VBS Blue IG terrain generation support, powered by TerraTools. VBS Blue IG is a next gen image generator that provides whole-earth rendering technology for out-the-window and sensor scene visualization. TerraTools makes it easy to add new high-resolution terrain areas and custom data sets to VBS Blue IG. For integration with other runtimes, TerraTools also simplifies the export of correlated terrain data to many other export formats. See demonstrations at booth #2235.
