The $12.3 million, five-year contract was an extension of BISim’s previous three-year contract to deliver enhancements to VBS3, which is used as a training environment for Marines’ learning tactics, techniques and procedures across the globe.

The Marines recognised they had made a significant investment in VBS3 technology and, ultimately, saw opportunities to continue improving on that investment,” said John Givens, BISim's President of US operations. “The USMC have taken interest in a number of new products in the works at BISim, which will further enhance the Marines' training capability.”
