The defence training solutions provider has onboarded a Dallas-based competitor.
InVeris Training Solutions has confirmed its acquisition of SURVIVR — a privately held, Dallas-based provider of virtual reality training to police and emergency services.
SURVIVR’s suite of virtual reality technology has previously been selected by a range of law enforcement departments and the US Air Force Security Forces.
The company's offering will be incorporated into InVeris’ VR-DT solution, in a bid to accelerate the development of new capabilities.
The integration of InVeris’ BlueFire simulated weapons technology with SURVIVR and InVeris’ VR-DT virtual reality de-escalation and safety training solutions, is expected to foster the development of a next-generation immersive, 3D, scenario-based training.
“All police forces – large and small, urban and rural – need and deserve the most realistic, effective training,” InVeris CEO Al Weggeman said.
“This acquisition by InVeris strengthens our product offering to better prepare law enforcement officers for real-life situations in their community.”
Brian Hoang, SURVIVR’s co-founder, who will now serve as InVeris’ director of VR/AR strategy, welcomed the new deal.
“Joining InVeris enables us to combine the best aspects of both systems, providing an unrivalled solution for existing and future customers,” Hoang said.
