Bohemia Interactive Simulations has landed a five-year contract from the U.S. Army to provide perpetual licenses of the company’s Virtual Battlespace 3 desktop training platform.
BISim said Tuesday it will also deliver upgraded versions of VBS3; provide online training course support; develop additional features; and update existing VBS3 functions under the contract.
VBS3 is based on commercial video game technology and is designed to provide a virtual environment for land, air and sea training.
The training package includes a content library, scenario development tools and after action review features.
BISim served as a subcontractor under the Army’s Games for Training program in 2013 and delivered VBS2 under the service branch’s Game After Ambush contract in 2009.
