The Army has awarded a five-year contract to Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) to deliver licenses and support of Virtual Battlespace 3 (VBS3), a comprehensive desktop training package based on commercial video game technology, for the Army's Games for Training program. The software provides a virtual learning environment for land, air and sea training and mission rehearsal applications. The system includes a content library, scenario development tools and after action review capability. In addition to delivering the software licenses, BISim will provide support and upgraded versions of VBS3, make enhancements to the existing software capabilities, provide online training course support and develop additional capabilities as requested by the Army.
"VBS3 supports a virtual training environment that is flexible, supports repetition, and is available at the point of need," said Brian Domian, Assistant Product Manager, Games for Training, U.S. Army. “The Army has been creative at adapting VBS3 for many varied training requirements and exploiting the development capabilities of VBS3 to create custom training solutions. This contract establishes a direct relationship with BISim that will enable continued collaboration over the next five years."
