InVeris Training Solutions, the leading provider of integrated virtual and live-fire training systems and services for domestic and international law enforcement customers, announced today that it has acquired SURVIVR, a privately held, Dallas-based Public Benefit Corporation devoted to public safety.
With the addition of SURVIVR to its industry-leading readiness training solutions portfolio, InVeris continues to build on its long-standing commitment to deliver effective, reliable, and innovative products and services for when split-second decisions matter.
“SURVIVR’s premier virtual reality police training system and patented technology complement recent research and development by InVeris. It will be incorporated into our VR-DT solution to expand future capabilities,” said InVeris CEO Al Weggeman.
“All police forces – large and small, urban and rural – need and deserve the most realistic, effective training. This acquisition by InVeris strengthens our product offering to better prepare law enforcement officers for real-life situations in their community,” he added.
“SURVIVR’s virtual reality technology has been chosen by various law enforcement departments and the U.S. Air Force Security Forces,” noted Brian Hoang, the company’s co-founder who will now serve as InVeris’ Director of VR/AR strategy.
“Joining InVeris enables us to combine the best aspects of both systems, providing an unrivaled solution for existing and future customers,” he stressed.
Simulation training, which provides trainees with real-to-life experiences, has been an important component of law enforcement and defense training for decades. Combining InVeris’ BlueFire® simulated weapons technology with SURVIVR and InVeris’ VR-DT virtual reality de-escalation and safety training solutions will form a new generation of immersive, 3D, scenario-based training. Similarly, instructors can use dynamic branching for a wide range of responses based upon the trainee’s verbal statements and physical actions. The objective for these solutions is simple but critical to all concerned: Good training saves lives.
InVeris Training Solutions combines an agile approach with unmatched expertise in training technology to design and deliver customized, cutting-edge, first-rate training solutions that keep law enforcement, private and commercial range clients safe, as well as military prepared and ready to serve.
With a portfolio of technology-enabled training solutions, and a team of 400 employees driven to innovate, InVeris Training Solutions is the global leader in integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training solutions.
With its legacy companies, FATS® and Caswell, InVeris Training Solutions has fielded over 15,500 live-fire ranges and 7,500 virtual systems globally during its 95-year history.
