Following the and Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim™) partnership announced in 2023, we are proud to present at IT2EC 2024 the high-fidelity SYNTH3D™ terrain data fully integrated into VBS4. This exceptional content, covering the entire globe, showcases terrain, buildings, and vegetation with rich details derived from satellite imagery, significantly enhancing the realism of urban landscapes in VBS4. SYNTH3D terrain data within VBS – Paris, France SYNTH3D terrain data within VBS – Paris, France´s AI-based rapid mapping and 3D terrain data generation solution turns current, large-scale and high-resolution satellite and sensor data into realistic and contextualized 3D simulation and training areas. As a result, built-up areas in VBS4 are now rendered with unparalleled real-world accuracy, redefining the standards for virtual environment detail and immersion. Semantic material information is also embedded, enabling realistic sensor simulation for the entire terrain out of the box.

Peter Morrison, CPO of BISim, said We are excited to announce the availability of terrain data in VBS, and it will open up new training use cases for both our desktop training and image generation products. The integration of terrain data also highlights the flexibility of our Mantle terrain pipeline to ingest geo-specific source data and render it at high resolution, in multiple runtimes.

Bohemia Interactive Simulation´s VBS4 with´s SYNTH3D data fully integrated means the new dawn in real-world training & simulation as daily updated satellite data of entire countries can be used to provide the most current 3D terrain databases for realistic mission rehearsal.
