Bohemia Interactive to unveil new simulation tech at I/ITSEC

A company with U.S. headquarters in Orlando has built a virtual reality-based world that allows the military to train soldiers in combat using any American city as a backdrop.

Bohemia Interactive Simulations plans to unveil its newest effort, which incorporates Google Earth data to replicate any U.S. city, at next month’s Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference in Orlando.

“We have made it easy to build out any area of the earth” virtually, said Peter Morrison, Bohemia Interactive founder and co-CEO. VBS Image Generator “pulls from several data sets.”

The defense conference brings together all military branches with private companies that show off their latest work in hopes of making connections and potentially landing contracts.

Bohemia has 68 of its 250 employees in its Orlando office and has, in the past, used the conference to land work with the U.S. Army and U.S. Navy.

Central Florida is home to the simulation arms of most of the U.S. Armed Forces branches, including the U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force.

I/ITSEC also helps companies like Bohemia make contacts that can lead to follow-up contracts. That’s how the company landed a contract with U.S. Marine Corps.

“It’s really the easiest way to access government contractors,” Morrison said of the conference.

I/ITSEC debuted in 1966 and has since grown to become one of the largest simulation and modeling shows in the world.

It has undergone several name changes and features some of the biggest names in simulation, including Lockheed Martin, Rockwell Collins and hundreds of military contractors.

The show’s location puts it right in the middle of Orlando’s robust simulation cluster.

I/ITSEC allows companies from around the world, from military, to medical, to movie industries to demonstrate their products at one venue.

That is what has brought Bohemia Interactive to the show since 2006, when the Prague, Czechoslovakia,-based company first entered the U.S. market.

So far, Morrison said, the company has seen I/ITSEC as a success.
