VirTra simulators to be located at 35 major international airports, ports of entry and training facilities across the U.S.

Tempe, AZ, September 14, 2017 --(PR.com)-- VirTra, Inc. (OTCQX: VTSI), (the “Company”), a global provider of training simulators for the law enforcement, military, educational and commercial markets, today announced the Company has signed contracts totaling more than $2.6 million with the United States Department of Homeland Security for the United States Customs and Border Protection. The contracts include the sale of multiple virtual training systems and accessories, including VirTra’s immersive V-300TM for just over $2 million and a renewal of their simulator service contracts totaling over $600,000. The V-300 judgmental use of force simulators will now be located at 35 major international airports, ports of entry and training facilities across the country.

With more than 60,000 employees, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is one of the world’s largest law enforcement organizations and is charged with keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the U.S. while facilitating lawful international travel and trade.

“The U.S. Customs and Border Protection safeguards America’s borders protecting the public from dangerous people and materials,” said Jason Mulcahy, general manager of VirTra, Inc. “Their officers interact with more than one million people per day. VirTra’s high-quality immersive training systems will help prepare those officers to handle the hostile and crisis situations they can face while teaching strategic, tactical engagement and de-escalation skills in a safe, controlled and cost-effective manner.”

The V-300 is capable of simulating hundreds of different scenarios that can convey body language and other non-verbal threat cues that are a crucial part of progressive judgmental use of force training. The V-300 also has multiple screens that offer a 300-degree view, and includes peripheral vision and weapons that closely match those used in the field to enhance the transferability of the training to real-life situations. Each training scenario in the VirTra V-300 is based on real-life incidents and is professionally produced with content that is carefully vetted by subject matter experts to rigorously test a trainee’s critical thinking skills, weapons skills under pressure, and psychological responses to the stresses of life-like situations.
