BISim signs a Software Value-Added Reseller agreement to resell The DiSTI Corporation’s GL Studio as an integrated Human Machine Interface (HMI) tool for their VBS4 virtual desktop trainer and simulation host.

Orlando, FL – The DiSTI Corporation, the world’s leading provider of graphical user interface software, has expanded their Software VAR contract portfolio to include Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim). BISim is a global software company at the forefront of simulation training solutions for defense and civilian organizations.

“DiSTI is highly regarded as a world leader in simulated instrumentation, and we’re pleased to be able to offer sample instruments to customers in future versions of VBS4 as well as a route for customers to add highly detailed instrumentation,” said Oli Arup, BISim’s Senior VP of Product Management.

VBS4 provides a comprehensive virtual desktop training environment with whole-earth rendering for tactical training, experimentation, and mission rehearsal. The software performs as a powerful simulation host for any image generator and offers a massive step-change in modularity, openness and ease-of-use. VBS4 features the performance and terrain-enhancing capabilities of BISim’s new engine, VBS Blue. VBS4’s new workflow and capabilities enables users to start training faster, make edits and updates to training scenarios and terrains with greater ease and collaboration. Using VBS4, users can simulate training scenarios anywhere on the virtual Earth. The VBS Simulation Software Development Kit supports VBS4. SDK provides developers with a library of APIs and source code to customize virtually every aspect of VBS4 and produce custom applications.

For 20 years, The DiSTI Corporation’s GL Studio has been a pioneer in the development of graphical user interface software. As a leader in UI design and the user interface software industry, DiSTI helped set the technological standards for creating high-quality user interfaces. Customers around the world rely on GL Studio’s suite of products to deploy HMIs for their products, including critical systems in avionics, automotive, transportation, and medical, to maintain their capabilities and have a competitive advantage in the market.

“All of us at DiSTI are very excited to have this new VAR relationship in place with BISim,” said Christopher Giordano, VP of UX/UI Technology at The DiSTI Corporation, “The integration of GL Studio with VBS4 is key for our mutual customers’ success in Simulation & Training. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial working relationship with the entire BISim team globally.”
