  • (1888PressRelease) December 14, 2010 - Bohemia Interactive Simulations, the foremost military serious games organisation and Caspian Learning, the leading rapid simulation and serious games company have leveraged their strategic technology partnership to create an exciting new simulation product that will change the way 3D simulations are created and distributed within the military. VBSWorlds brings a unique offering to the military sector which helps to solve current training and simulation issues experienced by defence customers around the world.

    Bohemia Interactive Simulations is the leading provider of 3D virtual battlefields for training to the military. They have been serving the military simulation community for almost a decade and have brought their gold standard and industry leading simulation product "VBS2" to the partnership. VBS2 - Virtual Battlespace 2 - is a fully interactive, 3D, PC-based synthetic environment specifically developed for military training, mission rehearsal and analysis.

    Caspian Learning has brought its multi award winning and globally unique rapid 3D simulation authoring software, Thinking Worlds, to the partnership. Thinking Worlds enables the new technology to capitalise on both the its true thin client and mobile delivery mechanisms and its rapid simulation and scenario editing capabilities.

    VBSWorlds was unveiled to great excitement last week at I/ITSEC. VBSWorlds is the first major product launch from the Joint Venture created by Bohemia Interactive Simulations and Caspian Learning earlier in 2010. VBSWorlds solves major issues affecting military clients by enabling 3D simulations to be:
    Theatre Responsive - developed in rapid timescales
    Integrated - interoperability with and re-use of the vast VBS2 art library
    Networked - can be housed and delivered through secure intranets
    Mobile - can be consumed through standard web browsers and on new mobile devices such as iPad and iPhone

    Peter Morrison, CEO of Bohemia Interactive Simulations, said "We are both delighted and hugely excited by the opportunities that VBSWorlds has opened up for us and our clients. Fusing Caspian Learning's rapid development and visual authoring capabilities with our own technology and experience has enabled us to take new types of 3D simulations out to our customers in locations even closer to theatre through thin-client content delivery or even on mobile devices like iPads and iPhones."

    Graeme Duncan, CEO of Caspian Learning stated "There are many similarities between our organisations and a fusion of our products seemed like the next natural step forward for us. I am massively excited by the response of customers shown at IITSEC and look forward to working with many of them in the near future."
