“We are proud to support this exhibition and thus help India’s prestigious Science City bring science closer to the people. As a global technology leader, Barco is also on a continuous mission to encourage young people to take an interest in science and technology. We are honored that Science City chose our solutions to achieve that same objective.” said Mandar Gupte, Sales Director at Barco.
“Colonel Sunil Damle (Amitabh Bachchan) briefs his army about Tiger Hill while planning the Kargil operation. He uses a sand model. The concept of DSM is the same. Instead of making a physical hill, you use satellite data and because the software is 3D, it reconstructs the terrain. The model, equipped with an analysis tool and other software, helps plan the operation on a real-time basis,” says Mr. Praveen Bhaniramka, Co-founder & CEO, VizExperts referring to the 2004 War drama Lakshya, when asked to simplify the Digital Sand Model Technology.
“We create a 3D model of terrain and fields using the maps and data obtained from satellites. Currently used by Indian army and BSF, it helps our forces to know about the area before venturing into it. We also created a virtual training exercise for soldiers of paramilitary forces which can be used with our GeorbIS 3D GIS platform.Using data provided by sensors fit in the sea, we can predict the height and speed of the waves,” says Mr. Praveen Bhaniramka, Co-founder & CEO, VizExperts.
“Digital Sand Model is a revolutionary solution for operation planning, mission briefing and training, for the Indian paramilitary, police, and the armed forces,” says Praveen Bhaniramka, Founder and CEO, VizExperts.
DGS&D performs the role of concluding rate contracts to be operated by the consuming departments of the Government for items of common use. DGS&D has been identifying such items, whose anticipated annual purchase by Government Organisations is normally more than Rs. 25 lakhs a year, and bringing such items on DGS&D Rate Contract.
The Buyers gain certain advantages while purchasing goods through the DGS&D Rate Contract scheme such as purchasing goods in bulk at lowest competitive price, saves time and effort in frequent tendering, allows the buyers to purchase goods as and when required, reduces inventory carrying cost by improving availability of goods and gives assurance as to the quality of the goods available.
The Suppliers also gain certain advantages by using a DGS&D Rate Contract such as, increasing the purchase quantity of their product without going through the tendering process helping them to save on administrative and marketing efforts and the use of DGS&D Rate Contract helps in enhancing the image and respectability of the Supplier.
DGS&D has a separate Quality Assurance Wing which undertakes the inspection of the stores to ensure that the supplied goods strictly follow the specifications as recorded by the given Rate Contracts.
The pioneering work done by VizExperts in the development of the GeorbIS 3D GIS platform and its requirement across a wide range of government organisations, have secured it a space on the DGS&D rate contract.
As part of the rate contract, the GeorbIS Vu and Pro products are available as Desktop and Server variants. Functional modules called CartridGIS allow rapid extension of functionality on the base platform. These include tools for real-time sensor data integration, sensor data fusion, UAV tracking, 3D analysis tools and visualising MIS data on GIS.

Gurugram-based startup VizExperts launched its revolutionary product Digital Sand Model, an integrated comprehensive 3D GIS solution deployed successfully in the Border Security Force Headquarter, New Delhi, 2011. The company works in the realm of 3D graphics and geospatial intelligence by providing integrated products with combining technologies such as 3D GIS, 3D Graphics, simulation and gaming.
The problem it solves? When armed forces are flown from different regions to handle security operations in unknown terrains such as the recent Pathankot operation, it is extremely crucial for them to have accurate information of their own assets as well as that of your enemy— where their weapons are stationed, their movements etc. This is only possible through advanced technology solutions, however Bhaniramka found that although the army buys a lot of such technologies, but adoption is a huge challenge. “First, the armed forces are not IT savvy and often these products are so complex that they need to spend a month-long training to get started with the product,” he says.
With the Digital Sand Model, the defense personnel on a 32 inch PC, can locate their enemy, their assets etc, and plan their moves even before they reach there, resulting in significant saving of resources,” says Mr. Praveen Bhaniramka, Co-founder & CEO, VizExperts.

Mr, Praveen Bhaniramka, Co-founder & CEO, VizExperts was featured in the ‘Rising Stars‘, Bloomberg TV India channel in which he talked about how VizExperts provide a smart DSS platform to decode and transform voluminous data through superior visual computing solutions to its users. VizExperts initially started out as a company providing software solutions and services to various governmental organisations and later entered into Research and Development of products. VizExperts introduced its first product Digital Sand Model Technology which is an integration of 4 different technologies – 3D graphics, high resolution satellite data, simulation and GIS. This helps the armed forces to have a better situational awareness of various terrains and helps to improve the planning process.
VizExperts (I) Pvt. Ltd. is a 3D Graphics technology company competing over other foreign OEMS in the Indian market. We had started with the Government Organizations and gradually started reaching out to the users of technology especially the defense sector. Our key clients include the Indian Army and Security Establishments like Paramilitary and Police.
VizExperts, a 10 year technology startup has taken the Indian defence market by storm with its indigenous flagship product Digital Sand Model, an integrated OGC certified integrated 3D GIS solution. The Digital Sand Model Technology is an integration of four different technologies – 3D graphics, high resolution satellite data, simulation and GIS (Geographical Information System). The technology relies on the GeorbIS 3D GIS platform to record information on different terrains and also makes use of audio visual hardware. This technology helps to give improved situational awareness to the armed forces.
The Digital Sand Model Technology was deployed successfully at the Border Security Force HQ, New Delhi, helps in operation planning, mission briefing and training for all the security forces including the Indian paramilitary, police and the armed forces. The BSF has used this technology succesfully to gain information on various terrains and to obtain a direct feed the situation in any terrain. The start-up was recognised for its services to the BSF during the farewell ceremony organised for DK Pathak, Deputy General, BSF at Shaheed RK Wadhwa Parade ground.
-Praveen Bhaniramka, founder and CEO of VizExperts. “We consider it an honor, to be of assistance to our country’s defence mechanism and keeping our work in line with our Prime Minister’s Make in India programme. It gives us immense pride and a sense of real purpose in what we do. We sincerely thank everyone at BSF, particularly DG BSF Shri Pathak, for giving us this opportunity to serve our nation.”
BSF officials congratulated VizExperts for their efforts and contribution. Further they stated that the Digital Sand Model technology along with the OPS Information System deployed at BSF Integrated OPS room by VizExperts, would be very useful for BSF and other forces, for better situational awareness, operation planning and informed decision making.
