CM Labs and Bohemia Interactive Simulations Partner to Offer Vortex Studio Integration with VBS

This integration allows Virtual Battlespace users to easily enhance their military simulations with CM Labs’ innovative dynamics engine for vehicle and equipment simulation.

Montreal, QC, November 15, 2018 — Moving to enhance the modelling and simulation capabilities of military organizations and system integrators specializing in defense vehicle training, CM Labs Simulations and Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) today announced the launch of the new Vortex® Studio for VBS integration.

Virtual Battlespace (VBS3) provides a multiplayer, virtual training environment for land, air and sea training and mission rehearsal applications. It has become an industry standard in game-based military simulation and is used extensively in over 50 countries to train hundreds of thousands of military personnel per year. Vortex for VBS has also been tested with VBS STE, a prototype version of BISim’s next generation training and simulation software combining an enhanced VBS simulation engine with VBS Blue whole-earth rendering.

Vortex Studio is a world-leading simulation and visualization platform designed to support the simulation of tactical wheeled and tracked vehicles, as well as logistics and engineering equipment. Boasting the industry’s highest-fidelity real-time interactive vehicle simulation, Vortex Studio is built on validated models and 20 years of simulation expertise.

Supporting Vortex Studio’s mechanism models (parts, constraints, attachments, scripting), along with advanced vehicle systems, cable systems, and terrain interactions, Vortex Studio for VBS is a groundbreaking development in military training simulations. The new software integration allows these leading simulation platforms to work together, making it easy for VBS3 and VBS STE users to create and deploy high fidelity simulations of vehicles and ground equipment for applications in training and mission planning.
