Andrew had the opportunity to train in the Threat Dynamics virtual training facility. “It was pretty much like being in the Matrix.”.
Manufactured by VirTra Systems, the simulators available at the Threat Dynamics facility included a 100 degree – one screen – system, and a 300 degree system, which utilized five screens and projectors. Hundreds of scenarios could be played out on either system, including responding to a school or workplace shooting, high-risk traffic stops, or simply a random encounter with bad guys in a dark place. In addition, virtual ranges can be set up – from single bullseye targets to a full duplicate of the Army’s rifle qualification course. Up to four shooters can use the program at once.
