The modern advanced training solution called the VR-DT (Virtual Reality Decisions and Tactics) or “Verdict” was released by InVeris Training Solutions. The platform will enhance the training for de-escalation of force in a wide variety of critical, real-world situations using immersive VR technology.
The VR-DT was picked in August 2020 by California POST through a competitive procurement process for its VR Force Options Simulator needs. InVeris was awarded the $2.6 million contract to deliver 50 systems during six months with the option to extend it further to $5 million for additional systems and related equipment.
“California POST’s selection of InVeris’ new VR-DT reinforces our company’s position as the world leader in law enforcement simulation training, now delivered via virtual reality,” stated Andrea Czop, Vice President of Strategy, Sales, and Marketing at InVeris Training Solutions.
“The VR-DT will put California law enforcement on the leading edge of force-option simulation training thanks to the unique immersive capabilities of virtual reality,” he added.
The VR-DT will allow law enforcement agencies along with private and military security forces to augment readiness and provide better training to students for field experiences. The platform comes as a package of state-of-the-art hardware, scalable software, and an ever-increasing content library.
“The VR-DT builds on nearly four decades of experience designing projection-based systems, but provides even greater realism,” said Eric Perez, the company’s Director of Virtual Systems Sales.
“Two officers training in a tactical scenario will benefit from their own viewpoints and spatial orientation, while still being tested on their verbal and physical actions. Moreover, after-action review of decision-making in such situations will be enhanced thanks to the precise tracking and playback of trainee movements in their respective virtual spaces.”
Officers would be able to train in fully immersive environments using the latest wireless, high-definition headsets with impressive 360-degree fields of view and weapons tracking. Additionally, the instructor would be able to influence the scenarios, environments, and weapons through a fully customized laptop.
These virtual experiences are expected to increase the student’s psychological immersion and focus when dealing with on-field situations. The technology will help enhance the conveyance of proper decision-making skills that can potentially save numerous lives in California and beyond.
