BISim at I/ITSEC 2019: VBS4 - Virtual Training Force Multiplier

Nov 14, 2019

BISim offers a comprehensive, cutting-edge technology suite for a broad range of multi-domain training uses. At I/ITSEC 2019, visit BISim’s booth 2534 to see live combined arms demonstrations of VBS4, our next generation whole-earth virtual desktop trainer and simulation host.

VBS4 offers a massive step change in modularity, openness and ease-of-use as well as the performance and terrain enhancing capability of BISim’s new engine, VBS Blue. VBS4’s new workflow and capabilities amplify your training efforts by enabling users to start training faster, make edits and updates to training scenarios and terrains with greater ease and collaboration, and simulate training scenarios anywhere on the virtual Earth. Watch the VBS4 video here!

Visit BISim and our booth partners at Booth 2534. Contact to schedule meetings and product demos.


At I/ITSEC 2019, BISim and partners will showcase a range of new products, capabilities and training applications at booth 2534.

These include the following demonstrations:

Combined Arms Demo featuring VBS4 - BISim will showcase VBS4 for a large combined arms training scenario involving a mechanized company, supported by attack helicopters and UAVs.

Mixed Reality Reconfigurable Aircraft - BISim will showcase the mixed reality visual capabilities of VBS Blue IG together with Varjo’s XR-1Bugeye Technologies’ RVCT cockpit and ZedaSoft’s simulation host for AH-64 pilot and gunner positions.

VR Flight Trainer - Take a test flight of the T-45 VR Part-Task Trainer, developed by BISim for the U.S. Navy. The VR-PTT replicates the crewstation, avionics, and flight dynamics of the T-45 aircraft using VR technology, FLEX-air (serving as the simulation host and providing all systems modelling, avionics, flight models, animations, and interactions) and visual environment by VBS Blue IG, BISim’s powerful 3D whole-earth image generator, to provide training at the point of need. Visitors to the BISim booth will be able to take a test flight using newly integrated Valve Index and VRgineers’ Xtal headsets.

Motion-Equipped Driver Trainers - BISim will showcase MotionSystems MIL-203 motion seat and its Reconfigurable Cockpit Module using VBS3 and VBS4 for several different vehicle simulations including tank, armored vehicle and boat simulators.

At I/ITSEC, TerraSim will demonstrate the VBS World Server, which underpins terrain data streaming and editing for VBS4. Our World Server is based on open standards for streaming terrain data to VBS4 and any other runtime system. A modular architecture allows the use of plug-ins for emerging and legacy terrain data formats, and enables advanced capabilities including real-time terrain editing.

We will also be demonstrating the latest features in TerraTools including the capability to use UAV survey imagery for 3D terrain reconstruction and updates to support the latest releases of VBS3, VBS Blue IG, VBS4, OneSAF, CDB and more.


TerraSim Inc., a Bohemia Interactive Simulations Company, is a leading geospatial technology company that develops advanced software solutions to automate the generation of 3D terrain databases. Our software support export to the widest range of visual, constructive, and serious game runtimes in the industry.

At I/ITSEC 2019, CM Labs will be highlighting an all-new, VBS3-based driver training scenario with advanced vehicle physics. This demonstration—enabled by the Vortex Studio for VBS integration—has been deployed with full-motion and realistic controls on CM Labs’ Vortex Advantage simulator hardware.

Vortex® Studio for VBS3 is a ground-breaking development in military training simulations, a software integration allowing VBS3 users to enhance scenarios with Vortex Studio’s powerful dynamics. Users can create high-fidelity simulations of vehicles for training and mission planning in both on-ground and amphibious situations.


For over 20 years, CM Labs has provided cutting-edge, physics-based simulation capabilities that have set industry standards for interactive 3D simulation and visualization. Through Vortex Studio, CM Labs provides enhanced simulators for training, mission rehearsal, prototyping, and testing applications

Individual & Team maneuver for VR/AR training. Serious Simulations will demonstrate VBS4 support for real-time animation of avatars, sourced from MOCAP data of human movements. Applying a uniquely efficient real-time inverse kinematic (IK) solver, plug-ins developed for BISim’s VBS4 enable the avatar to have actual movements of the human being trained, not standardized, pre-programmed animations. Serious Simulations will demonstrate its IK solution in the context of its ready2train® tactical maneuver simulator. It also will feature its patented real weapon instrumentation solutions for AR/VR/MR integration, including miniature edge computers, and data sensing “skins”, as well as industry unique wireless HMDs and simulated hand grenades.
