LONDON, UK — Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) has fully integrated SYNTH3D terrain data into its VBS4, VBS Blue IG and Mantle products. This integration provides customers a best-in-class global simulation experience showcasing terrain, buildings, and vegetation. These rich details are derived from satellite imagery and significantly enhance the realism of urban landscapes in VBS.

Peter Morrison, Chief Product Officer of BISim, said “We are excited to announce the availability of terrain data in VBS, which will open new training use cases for both our desktop training and image generation products. The integration of terrain data also highlights the flexibility of our Mantle terrain pipeline to ingest geo-specific source data and render it at high resolution, in multiple runtimes.”´s AI-based rapid mapping and 3D terrain data generation solution turns current, large-scale and high-resolution satellite and sensor data into realistic and contextualized 3D simulation and training areas. As a result, built-up areas in VBS are now rendered with unparalleled real-world accuracy, redefining the standards for virtual environment detail and immersion. Semantic material information is also embedded, enabling realistic sensor simulation for the entire terrain out of the box. buildings in VBS4 renderings in VBS4 buildings in VBS4

VBS with´s SYNTH3D data fully integrated means enhanced training and mission rehearsal use cases are now possible, as daily updated satellite data of entire countries can be used to provide the most current 3D terrain databases for realistic terrains.
