TerraSim Revolutionizes Complex Building Generation for VBS2

November 29, 2010
I/ITSEC 2010
Orlando, FL

TerraSim, Inc. will demonstrate a significant advance in the generation of geo-specific buildings for use in the Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BIS) Virtual Battlespace 2 runtime.

Currently, VBS2 users who develop geo-specific 3D models are restricted in the overall length and width of a constructed building, as well as the number of geometry vertices which can exist in a single model. These constraints making it almost impossible to place large buildings like skyscrapers and commercial complexes in the VBS2 runtime.

Unlike TerraTools, most alternative COTS modeling systems do not address the generation of collision volumes, AI routing paths, and trafficability information required for VBS2 buildings.

To address these critical issues, the TerraTools 4.0 VBS2 exporter will automatically decompose complex models into allowable VBS2 .p3d models with all required layers automatically built.

TerraTools supports models built with the most widely used low-cost modeling tools such as Google SketchUp and Autodesk 3ds MAX and Maya. With this new TerraTools functionality, users can produce fully functional hybrid buildings with extraordinary real world appearances. These models are then able to be correlated with all other runtimes supported by TerraTools.

TerraSim will announce this game changing technology at the 2010 VBS2 Presentation Session on Wednesday December 1, 2010 in NTSA meeting room 4745. Demonstrations will be held in the TerraSim I/ITSEC Booth 1469 from November 29 - December 2, 2010.

About TerraSim

TerraSim is a US owned high-technology company that provides software solutions and services for advanced visual simulation and database construction using a variety of geospatial source data.

TerraSim's TerraTools® automates construction of dense urban environments for operations planning and situation assessment as well as produces exercise databases covering hundreds of one degree geocells. TerraSim also provides database construction services and advanced technology development for both civilian and military customers.

TerraSim's source data preparation products cut the key cost drivers in modeling and simulation workflows. TerraSim Xtract™ recovers legacy source data and processes it for reuse in any modeling and simulation product. RoadMAP from TerraSim® seamlessly detects, delineates, and attributes road networks and other linear features from aerial and satellite imagery.

TerraSim's TerraTours® product supports highly interactive geospatial query using 3D visualizations linked to a variety of collateral source data. Using GISLink™ technology, TerraTours automatically georeferences and displays information in any web-enabled document.
