InVeris launches new augmented reality training system

InVeris Training Solutions unveiled its new SRCE training product, an untethered augmented reality device that enables four operators to train with simulated weapons and tactical gear.

InVeris Training Solutions unveiled its new SRCE training product, an untethered augmented reality device that enables four operators to train with simulated weapons and tactical gear.

Integrated live-fire and virtual weapons specialist InVeris Training Solutions launched its new simulated training system SRCE (See, Rehearse, Collectively Experience), enabling four operators to train with simulated weapons and tactical gear in an augmented and untethered environment.

It is hoped that the development of the new product would enable militaries and law enforcement agencies to undertake use-of-force training anywhere in the world.

The new product allows operators to see, rehearse and collectively experience tactics and procedures. SRCE achieves this using real-time location, movement and orientation and biometric sensing to generate a realistic training environment and improve operator capability.

The SRCE also allows instructors to observe the training scenario through a tablet and camera which provide insight into the training environments. Throughout the simulation, InVeris explained that hostile actors, decoys and hostages are placed in the simulation digitally without need for human actors.

"Augmented reality delivers the best of the virtual and real worlds in a way that's fully lifelike, seamless, customisable and economical," said chief executive of InVeris Al Weggeman.

 "Physical training facilities can be scanned and augmented to become instant shoot houses by integrating outside content in just minutes. More importantly, we can compare and measure individual and team performance with high precision real-time location tracking of every participant, weapon and even ammunition round."

Following the training scenario, the SRCE provides an after-action review (AAR), which uses performance data to generate statistical analyses including showing muzzle direction, weapon discharge, missed rounds, eye tracking and head placement. This enables users to do virtual walk throughs of their training module after the completion of the exercise.

The product also includes integrations such as heart sensors to monitor heart rate, breathing, gaze and life-signs.

In August, InVeris Training Solutions 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.
