VirTra has a presence in all corners of the United States, but we also have an international presence in 40 countries. Just recently, our newest addition is a distributor located in Spain that provides federal law enforcement with effective training tools. There are three separate locations across Spain that are receiving training with VirTra simulators and hardware.

Over the past several years, some European countries have sent out RFPs for simulation training solutions but noticed when vetting them that many of the responding companies were unable to deliver the features that they claimed they had. The latest tender had a clause that any capability claimed by a company that seemed ‘questionable’ must be proven within one week in Europe. If a company was caught lying about their capabilities, they would be blacklisted as all information is public.

VirTra was able to establish a presence in Spain while proving that we can handle large requests by having the capabilities we promise. Because of the addition of the clause in the final tender, VirTra was the only company to submit a proposal as other companies were worried of the threat that their response, if deceptive, would become public information.

An article published within the same month as the purchase has detailed the obtainment and uses of the simulators arriving within the next few months. The order includes V-ST PRO® simulators with 4K capabilities, V-Author® scenario authoring software, Threat-Fire® consequence devices, Axon® TASER® training cartridges and more.

Expanding our presence worldwide and helping other countries like Spain help VirTra further reach our goal of providing life-saving training to law enforcement – and training doesn’t have borders. The training content on our simulators is available in French, Spanish and Arabic so overseas clients can benefit from the same tools as our officers at home. Additionally, content can be localized in any language as needed.

VirTra is a global provider of virtual firearms training simulators designed to better prepare military, law enforcement,  and security personnel for life-threatening situations they may potentially encounter on the job. Since September 2017, the company has signed contracts for international agencies worth more than 8.25 million dollars and has doubled its International presence since 2013 and is currently doing business in 29 different countries worldwide.

What These Contracts Include

VirTra not only provides these end users with the de-escalation training systems, service and warranty, but also personally installs each system and trains the end users trainers in order to better prepare personnel for their duties. The systems include the V-100, V-ST PRO, V-180 and V-300LE and V-300MIL units, many of which utilize the V-Author software suite. These use of force simulator systems are designed to mentally challenge trainees in a fast-paced simulated environment, giving them the opportunity to practice responding to some of the most dangerous scenarios imaginable and train per their countries standards. Agencies utilizing these high-tech gun simulators, rather than live round training, have seen this military and law enforcement training option as cost-effective solution producing higher calibrate results in the field.

V-Author PRO

International clients are drawn to the unlimited possibilities that the V-Author PRO Scenario Authoring Suite offers them. It is an easy-to-use, customer created scenario tool that includes industry-leading content which features: green-screened actors that can either interact on the same screen or separate screens both simultaneously and independently, ballistic penetration with real-world props, visual effects, and animated targets. In just a few hours, custom photographs can be turned into a specific military or law enforcement use of force training scenario that would otherwise be unavailable. Creating content with VirTra V-Author PRO is an extremely efficient cost-savings solution. Once the necessary images are in-hand, there is no need to regularly travel to specific locations and shut down these locations in order to safely train inside.

Branching Out

VirTra has enjoyed an American presence for decades, and as military, law enforcement, and security personnel across the world begin to utilize this same firearms simulator technology for their own specific training needs, VirTra’s tribal knowledge continues to grow and allows for more innovation with every new version and upgrade.  By working with the Ministry of Interior (MOI), Ministry of Defense (MOD) and security companies in other countries, the company is able to bring more ideas, options and additions to the advancements of their products and services. VirTra technology is used to help save lives, reduce mistakes, save on ammunition, and reduce logistics and transport time.

As the importance of higher next level training becomes more necessary, VirTra’s judgmental use of force simulators has become more adopted around the world by law enforcement, military, and security as a result.

Tempe, Ariz. — March 20, 2018 — VirTra, Inc. (OTCQX: VTSI/VTSID), a global provider of training simulators for the law enforcement, military, educational and commercial markets, today announced that it has received three delivery orders for law enforcement simulators under the previously announced indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract by the United States Department of State (DOS). These orders are valued at approximately $4.6 million and will consist of 49 training simulators, related accessories and training. The IDIQ contract could result in up to $40 million in revenue for law enforcement training simulator equipment and services over the order period, which expires in April 2021.

“This is a historic day for VirTra as we have been entrusted to supply critical training simulators for Pakistan,” said Jason Mulcahy, general manager of VirTra. “We are honored to have been selected by the U.S. Department of State and look forward to the opportunity to supply world class training solutions with deliveries projected to occur in the second and third quarters of 2018.”

The simulators will be delivered to the U.S. Department of State and are expected to be donated to Pakistan in support of U.S. Foreign Assistance programs. The simulators are anticipated to be used in basic and advanced weapons training for developing proficiency in marksmanship, use of force judgment skills, close quarters shooting skills and other related skills which law enforcement personnel face in the execution of their duties.

With this contract, VirTra’s advanced simulators are now installed in 27 countries, plus the United States.
