HOUSTON , April 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- VirTra Systems, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: VTSI). Major General Perry V. Dalby (USA-Retired), VirTra Systems' chief executive officer, today announced VirTra Systems has received an order for its advanced IVR(R) small arms training simulator from Phelps County Sheriff's department in the State of Missouri .
The 300-degree law enforcement situational awareness and use-of-force firearms simulator employs fully immersive scenarios that instantly branch based on the trainee's performance. Phelps County Sheriff will also use VirTra Systems' successful patent-pending Threat-Fire(TM) Belts along with handgun training conversion kits, and a host of other simulation accessories.
Major General Dalby commented, "We are pleased that Phelps County Sheriff has chosen the IVR HD-300 small arms simulator for its deputies.
"One must remember that our law enforcement officers are on the 'front line' of our nation's Homeland Security. The Sheriff's Department has demonstrated its commitment to its citizenry by upgrading its training program with the most realistic small arms simulator of its kind. VirTra Systems believes that immersive training improves an officer's awareness of his or her surroundings, and avoids the potential for developing 'tunnel vision' during training that is inherent in older, single-screen simulators.
"VirTra Systems' immersive firearms simulators are now used in every branch of the military, the Army Research Laboratory, the U.S. Marshal's Service, police departments and training academies nationwide, and a growing list of international customers," concluded Major General Dalby.
