BISim to Integrate Pitch Talk for VBS


Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim), a global developer of advanced military simulation and training software, announced today that it has reached an agreement with Pitch Technologies, a leading supplier of commercial tools and services to the modelling and simulation community, to bundle Pitch Talk with BISim’s desktop training software products starting with VBS3. VBS Radio and VBS Radio Pro will be upgraded to use Pitch Talk as the underlying technology, and a separate, stand-alone variant will also be available. All existing VBS3 customers will receive this upgraded technology for free as part of their standard VBS3 update and support package.


Pitch Talk is a new communications framework to support distributed simulation. It covers a wide range of applications, from pilot and crew to theater-level command and control training. Pitch Talk enables high-fidelity simulation with unlimited channels of radio, intercom, audio and chat, making it easy to design, centrally manage and deploy exercises.
