PRODUCT PORTFOLIO

BISim’s product portfolio enables users to create, simulate and visualize realistic multi-domain, battlespace training scenarios to help enhance warfighter readiness.

From desktop simulation and image generation to terrain development and editing to cutting-edge AI and XR, we offer a comprehensive portfolio for your simulation and training needs.

The BISim team has a 16 year heritage in delivery of high-fidelity, game-based simulation using the VBS engine. Leverage the following applications, all built on the VBS platform, to immerse trainees in tailored and engaging virtual environments.

Simulation

Our flagship virtual desktop trainer VBS3 is used in 59 countries for tactical training, experimentation and mission rehearsal. BISim’s next generation desktop trainer VBS4 is an all-in-one application with whole-earth rendering for myriad multidomain collective & individual training use cases, and tools for easy terrain editing and mission planning.

VBS4 VBS3

Visualization

Deploy VBS Blue whole-earth rendering technology with game-like visuals on VR, AR, MR & XR devices or traditional multichannel simulators, driven by either CIGI-compliant hosts or VBS4. Our whole-earth image generator VBS Blue IG leverages video-game technologies to bring high-fidelity game graphics to military simulation and training.

VBS Blue IG

Terrain

Develop highly detailed and accurate geo-specific virtual environments with TerraTools from TerraSim, a BISim company. Use the VBS World Server with VBS4 and VBS Blue IG to stream terrain data layers to applications locally or from the Cloud.

VBS Blue IG

High-Performance, 3D Whole-Earth Render
WHAT IS AN IG?

An image generator (IG) provides the visual data (such as terrains, buildings, weather, models, etc.) for multi-channel simulators. Driven by a host simulation, IGs enable many views for different screen configurations so simulators can replicate views and sensors from inside tanks, helicopters, and ships. VBS Blue IG is a state-of-the-art, WGS-84 round-earth, blended procedural and imagery-based visualization solution designed for part-task trainers, VR/AR solutions and full-mission simulators.

WHAT IS CIGI?

CIGI (aka the Common Image Generator Interface) is a set of simulation industry standards by which image generators and hosts are developed, so that different systems interoperate efficiently and effectively. VBS Blue IG supports CIGI, which has enabled BISim to integrate with other simulations for the land, sea, air and space training domains.

WHAT IS A HOST SIMULATION?

A host tells the IG what happens during the simulation and what participants should see. It communicates with different, interconnected simulators, and “talks” with each connected simulator to make sure visuals match each other in different systems. VBS Blue IG works with any CIGI-based simulation host or VBS3, which offers seamless correlation.
