A NSW company is enhancing the state’s reputation as the “smart state” by turning virtual into reality, creating advanced simulation technology to train the world’s leading military forces.

Bohemia Interactive Simulations (BISim) has been growing since 2001, becoming a global leader in simulated training for military and civilian organisations.


The company has secured contracts with the Australian Defence Force, the New Zealand Defence Force, the US Marine Corps, the US Army, the UK Ministry of Defence, the Swedish Armed Forces and the Canadian Armed Forces.

NSW Minister for Trade and Industry Niall Blair said that BISim and its products offers a fantastic example of how the next generation of defence industries will look in NSW.

"BISim have carved out an international reputation as one of Australia’s most innovative defence firms," Minister Blair said.

"Their game-based technology allows our military to have front-line training experience without the associated risk or cost.

"It’s breakthrough technology that is taking the military world by storm."

BISim's leading technology is Virtual Battlespace, which provides high quality, flexible and cost-effective virtual training, and is currently a flagship product for the US Army’s Games for Training program, which serves to train individual soldiers and small-to-medium units in a shared environment, providing varying levels of immersion.

BISim's technology will be on display at Australia’s largest maritime event PACIFIC 2017, to be held next week in Darling Harbour, along with 13 other NSW companies being supported by the NSW government.

The NSW government has also assisted BISim establish a presence at the defence aerospace innovation hub at the Williamtown Aerospace Centre.
