Powerful Tools to Configure and Customize Your IG

VBS IG SDK allows developers to customize and extend VBS Blue IG by providing a framework and suite of tools.

Open and Modular Development Framework

VBS IG SDK includes a library of APIs and source code allowing developers and integrators to customize virtually every aspect of VBS Blue IG and produce custom applications. The APIs form a modular C plug-in architecture that enable developers to integrate third-party technologies effectively and efficiently.


Tools to Simplify Processes

VBS IG SDK features tools such as VBS IG Studio designed to simplify the configuration and deployment process for multi-channel client-server management. The user interface helps guide the setup process through a wizard-based system, allowing developers to easily save and reuse IG settings, identify views, reconfigure views in real time, and manage build copying and launching on remote VBS IG agents.

Supports Industry Standards

VBS IG SDK provides native connectability via industry standards such as DIS, HLA and CIGI to simulation hosts. Use new or existing terrain databases built with many commercially available tools that support the native terrain format used in VBS.


Whole Earth Rendering for Any Simulator

VBS IG SDK includes the VBS Blue IG runtime for development. VBS Blue IG provides high-fidelity and high-performance rendering from space down to blades of grass for all training domains. VBS Blue IG can be used across individual part-task trainers, VR/AR solutions and full-motion simulators with multiple synchronized displays. Using the Common Image Generator Interface (CIGI) standard, VBS Blue IG integrates with existing host software including VBS3. TerraTools from TerraSim, a BISim company, makes it easy to add new high-resolution terrain areas and custom data sets to VBS Blue IG.
