The DVS2 contract win for BISim highlights that games technology has matured to the point where it has totally eclipsed proprietary image-generation systems as a source of visualisation.

Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) has been selected by the UK MoD to provide its flagship VBS4 and VBS Blue IG products under a five-year enterprise licence contract. The contract covers the British Army, RAF and RN.

Defence Virtual Simulation 2 (DVS2) follows DVS1 that BISim was awarded in 2016 and which used VBS3 (the forerunner to VBS4).

As the prime contractor and design authority, BISim now carries on this role until 2027.

BAE Systems-owned BISim will deliver DVS2 as a managed service. According to the company, the MoD will benefit from capability enhancements with a regular cycle of software updates.
