Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) is a global software company at the forefront of simulation training solutions for defence and civilian organisations.

The company uses the latest game-based technology and a large, experienced in-house team of engineers to develop high-fidelity, cost-effective training and simulation software products and components for defence applications.

VBS4 is BISim’s flagship product – a fully featured desktop trainer and simulator with hundreds of use cases and integration possibilities. VBS4 provides a comprehensive virtual desktop training environment with a whole-earth rendering for tactical training, experimentation, and mission rehearsal.

BS4 is a whole-earth virtual desktop trainer and simulation host that allows you to create and run any imaginable military training scenario.

The VBS4 workflow steps the user through Prepare – Execute – Assess phases, facilitating fast and effective skills enhancement.

In VBS4, users create ‘Battlespaces’ that are a collection of terrain edits, mission plans, scenario files and after-action reviews. Each Battlespace is centred on a specific location on the virtual Earth.

Scenarios can be modified in real time and replayed in the After-Action Review for lessons learned. VBS4 scenarios can be fully constructive (AI controlled), fully virtual (human controlled) or a mix of both.

The software performs as a powerful simulation host for any image generator and supports a wide range of individual, team, and collective activities up to the battlegroup level.
