InVeris Training Solutions has released details of its all-new Virtual Reality Decisions and Tactics advanced training solution (VR-DT), also known as “Verdict”. The system uses the latest fully immersive VR technology for training de-escalation of force in a wide variety of critical, real-world situations. California’s Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (CA POST), which oversees training statewide, will serve as the solution’s launch customer.
The VR-DT was chosen in August 2020 by California POST following a competitive procurement process for its VR Force Options Simulator requirement. InVeris will deliver 50 systems during a six-month period as part of a US$2.6M contract award with the option for up to US$5M in additional systems and related equipment. InVeris will supply 100 scenarios with branching options initially, plus 10 state-mandated ones per year of the contract.
The VR-DT enables law enforcement agencies, as well as private and military security forces, to maximise readiness and correctly educate students for field experiences. The system combines state-of-the-art hardware, scalable software and a content library that is always increasing. A variety of officer weapons and equipment can be accommodated, including simulated pistols, rifles, shotguns, batons, TASERs, OC sprays and flashlights. The adjustable and modular system works anywhere, from one to two-person sessions.
