InVeris Training Solutions Unveils New SRCE Augmented Reality Weapons Training System
In Augmented Reality News
December 1, 2021 – InVeris Training Solutionsa provider of integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training systems for military, law enforcement and commercial shooting ranges, this week unveiled its augmented reality-based autonomous weapons training simulator ( AR) SRCE (See, Rehearse, Collectively Experience).
“Augmented reality delivers the best of the virtual and real worlds in a completely realistic, seamless, customizable, and cost-effective way,” said InVeris CEO Al Weggeman. “Fitness training facilities can be scanned and augmented to become instant filming rooms by integrating outside content in just minutes. More importantly, we can compare and measure individual and team performance with location tracking in real time with high precision of each participant, weapon and even ammunition.
SRCE’s proprietary scanning technology allows instructors to capture the space intended for use as a filming room using a tablet or other device with a high-resolution camera. Hostile forces, suspects, decoys, hostages and other parties can then all be delivered digitally, eliminating the need for opposition actors. As a result, InVeris states that SRCE’s ability to create a virtual shooting house on the fly lends itself to active fire training and mission rehearsal.
Wearable, untethered technology, including an AR head-mounted display, provides realistic immersion without compromising freedom of movement and is fully compatible with InVeris BlueFire Simulated Weapons. The solution appears to be using a modified Magic Leap 1 headset that includes the company’s proprietary top-mounted scanning technology. Other features and interaction capabilities of SRCE’s immersive environment include:
- Support for up to four trainees simultaneously in a real or virtual 3D environment, posing realistic stress in a safe training setting;
- Allows participants to scan and practice in rooms up to 100 square feet.
- All trainees see their own physical characteristics, weapons and magazines, including their real co-located training partners;
- Interactive and customizable avatars that can provide unexpected and adjustable training scenarios;
- High-fidelity BlueFire weapons, including recoil, magazine replacement, weapon tilt detection, lock-on, and instructor-controlled simulated failures;
SRCE also includes an interactive After Action Review (AAR) feature that collects performance data for statistical analysis, including muzzle direction, weapon discharge, misses, eye tracking and the placement of the head. Body sensors monitor a trainee’s heart rate, breathing, gaze and other biological signs in real time. Learners can even step back through their previous session, seeing every item played around them as a visualization to review operational performance. As a result, AAR also helps improve training fidelity and retention by enabling replay of various aspects of a training session, including:
- Several points of view
- Multiple Views of Trainees
- Bird’s eye view
- moving camera
- Barrel/muzzle tracking
- Shooting trajectory
- Placement of shots
- Direction of the head of the trainees
- The trainee’s perspective
- Active timeline
