Cost Benefits

Equipment use is simulated so single or restricted use items such as ammunition, Taser cartridges and batteries are not wasted, saving costs for training sessions. Firearms, Taser and PAVA can all be simulated within the system.

Unique point of view analysis

The scenario can be viewed by the instructor from the trainee’s perspective so that the trainer and the rest of the training group can see exactly what the user saw at the time the action was taken. The whole training session can be recorded for review or evidencing later from any perspective within the scenario. The highly immersive platform allows sight, sound to be simulated and officer body positioning can be integrated into the analysis.

Portability

The system can utilise up to a 10m x 10m training space (smaller can be used) so can be set up in any reasonably-sized open space. The kit can be taken or sent to the users on location keeping users operational - If they are needed, they simply take off the kit and get going. Networking allows trainers to stay in central locations and train remotely.

Full control over training scenarios

An instructors’ console will allow them to configure and then adapt the scenario according to how the participants are doing. This includes configuring the environment, characters and weapons during training setup and changing character behaviour, aggression, actions and even lighting conditions while the scenario is playing live. The same scenario can have different outcomes for users that have trained with it previously or a fully repeatable situation can be configured for formative assessment purposes. The National Decision Model is built into scenarios to assess against and instructors can pause, re-start or intervene in the scenario, giving guidance or reflection.

Effective hardware

The AVRT platform is built on reliable consumer technology to avoid the need for costly custom-built VR hardware. Added to this are custom weapons and real-world props to enhance the realism. Durability and effectiveness are built-in.
