VirTra Systems participated in the International Law Enforcement Educators and Training Association (ILEETA) Trade Show in Chicago on April 19 – 24 and has received positive reviews regarding their simulators on Policemag.com after they showcased their IVR-300 HD training system. As an organization, ILEETA is known worldwide for their commitment to the reduction of law enforcement risk through the enhancement of training for criminal justice practitioners. Policemag.com, the online law enforcement magazine, is recognized as an industry leader in the police community.
The author of the article, David Griffith, states, “The visuals on the VirTra are stunning, but what really sets the IVR-300 HD apart from many other simulators is its sound quality. Stone (Spencer Stone, VirTra’s business director of law enforcement) was playing a helicopter effect at ILEETA, and it sounded like one was landing in the training area. For more realistic bass sounds, the training stage features a series of transducers. The effect is very realistic.”
VirTra Systems, a developer and manufacturer of immersive virtual reality (IVR) products, offers several different lines of simulators for both the military and the law enforcement industry. Their patent-pending, state-of-the-art technologies come in an array of prices for all budgets and range from single screen simulators to full 360 degree enclosures that can be customized for all levels of marksmanship training and use of force training. Currently, the VirTra products are used by law enforcement agencies and military divisions both within the United States and internationally.
On April 29th, VirTra announced that they have expanded their management team by hiring Mr. Don Andrus as their new president. Mr. Andrus, a Military Police veteran with the Air Force, has an extensive history of developing companies including 24 very successful years with May Department Stores. Commenting on becoming a part of the VirTra Systems management team, Mr. Andrus stated, “VirTra Systems has a reputation for making the most realistic firearm training simulators in the industry. This critical training component will help save lives for Military and Law Enforcement first responders. I am very excited to be part of a high growth, high-energy company.”
