BISim Terrain Conference

Jun 30, 2020

The BISim Terrain Conference offers defense professionals an opportunity to see the latest modular, cloud-capable technology for creating, editing, enhancing, correlating and managing geospatial source data for military simulation.

Hosted by the terrain experts at TerraSim, a BISim company, this 2-day series of presentations and demonstrations will introduce attendees to BISim’s modular, cloud-enabled World Server technology. TerraSim presenters will show how users can take full control of their terrain data, and demonstrate how easily the World Server technology can be modified to suit a multitude of simulation needs. Attendees will also see examples of how to use TerraTools and VBS Geo to support a range of use cases including building out urban areas and airfields. In these one-hour presentations, we’ll invite you to ask questions of our product experts and our special guests.

The sessions will run twice each day at 8:30 am EDT (2:30 pm CEST) and 1:00 pm EDT (10:00 am PDT). The afternoon sessions will cover the same material as the morning session, so participants only need to sign up for one session each day (unless you really love the topic so much that you feel you should attend twice).

Learn more about each day’s sessions and register to attend below.

Day 1: Addressing the Terrain Problem: Intro to BISim’s World Server Technology

REGISTER HERE for Day 1 Morning Session, Wednesday, July 15 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am (EDT)

REGISTER HERE for Day 1 Afternoon Session, Wednesday, July 15 @ 1:00 pm -2:00 pm (EDT)

In these sessions, we’ll look at BISim’s novel approach to managing global terrain data for simulation with a deep dive into our World Server technology. The World Server technology is designed from first principles to leverage cutting-edge networking, cloud deployment, procedural enhancement capabilities, and is built on open standards to facilitate easy enhancement with future technology advancements. We call it a technology, not a product, because it offers a foundation for our COTS products (VWS and, in the future, a version of TerraTools) but also can be a starting point for a fully customized terrain serving and storage solution. You’ll see how BISim’s World Server technologies stand apart from traditional terrain servers and how our tech helps address the challenge of managing dozens of disparate data sources through a modular, open approach.

Day 2: From Space to Grass and Ocean Floor: Building Terrain for Simulation

REGISTER HERE for Day 2 Morning Session, Thursday, July 16 @ 8:30 am - 9:30 am (EDT)

REGISTER HERE for Day 2 Afternoon Session, Thursday, July 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm (EDT)

In these sessions, we’ll showcase the suite of tools that BISim and TerraSim provide customers for working with all kinds of data sources — legacy or emerging. Whether you want to refine and quickly edit procedural terrain in VBS4, correlate to game engines like Unity or Unreal, or import new data sources including LiDAR and drone captures, we have the tools to efficiently prepare that data for a simulated world. Join TerraSim, BISim and special guests for demonstrations of our product suite and find out more about our open, extensible and cloud-enabled terrain services.
