Prior to Threat-Fire™, Military and Law Enforcement simulation training lacked a key feature – consequences. Trainees could engage simulated hostile forces however, simulated hostile forces could not feasibly affect trainees – a deficiency that greatly reduced the realism of training. As part of VirTra’s ongoing effort to revolutionize firearms simulation training, VirTra invented the Threat-Fire™ to solve this problem.
The standard setting of just 30 milliseconds of electric impulse is enough to add real-world consequences that greatly enhance the effectiveness of simulation training. Threat-Fire™ easily clips-on to the trainee, uses a rechargeable battery pack, is wireless, and can penetrate many layers of clothing. As opposed to shoot-back cannons, Threat-Fire™ requires no aiming, allowing instructors to focus fully on the trainee, does not leave behind materials that require cleanup, and has low risk of personal injury compared to shoot-back projectiles.
Fully integrated into VirTra’s firearms training simulators, Threat-Fire™ represents a higher standard in simulation. Trainees learn to handle consequences in training – the best possible preparation for duty.
Enhanced training realism – Standard setting of just 30 milliseconds of impulse adds stress and real-world consequences to training.
Adjustable – Electric impulse adjustable from 0.2 to 2.5 seconds.
Safe – No eye protection or clean up required. Failsafe impulse protection.
Effective – Can penetrate many layers of clothing.
Lightweight – Patented, compact clip-on device weighs approximately one pound.
No aiming required – Trainer can focus fully on trainee.
Wireless – Managed via by instructor control panel (Requires wireless station).
Rechargeable – Powered via rechargeable battery pack.
Fully integrated – Compatible with all VirTra Systems firearms training simulators.
A vibration only (no shock) version is also available.
