The VBS software provides a comprehensive virtual training environment for tactical training and mission rehearsal for land, sea and air.
“The purpose of the project was to integrate a realistic simulation of the SPIKE weapon system into the VBS software. This will allow the SPIKE operators to train more effectively on tactical scenarios developed by the instructors,” said Mr Robert Elvish, NSPA Air and Land Combat Systems Programme Manager.
The contract was awarded in September 2021 to Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BIS), manufacturer of the VBS software. Several software iterations were released over the course of 2022, leading to the delivery of the final software package in December 2022.
