Virtual Systems Integration Lab (VSIL)
The Virtual Systems Integration Lab (VSIL) includes the Virtual Systems Editor (ViSE) tool for configuring, executing, controlling, and monitoring simulations.
Cybernet’s Virtual Systems Integration Lab (VSIL) is an integrated simulation platform for the development, modification, and prototyping of vehicle systems and components. VSIL was developed by Cybernet and the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Research Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC). VSIL leverages commercial virtual-design technology pioneered in the automotive industry to simulate Army vehicles and perform rapid trade-off analysis for soldier safety and operational effectiveness. VSIL tests subsystems in new designs and is easily maintained because it reuses existing components and subsystems. VSIL includes the Virtual Systems Editor (ViSE) tool for configuring, executing, controlling, and monitoring simulations.
VSIL users can:
- Consolidate simulation tools currently in use
- Reduce the time, cost and resources needed for developing a new system
- Design and work with virtual models
- Enhance vehicle performance and soldier safety
- Reduce cost and improve efficiency in the hardware design process
- Enable tradeoff analysis for cost and performance evaluation early in the design process
- Reduce demand for costly prototypes, resulting in lower non-recoverable costs
- Collaborate under the design environment for multi-designer input and analysis
