3D simulations will support virtual hands-on training delivered at Federal Law Enforcement Training Center sites.

This new project is a natural fit for our technology because homeland security and defense organizations share many of the same training requirements

NGRAIN®, the leading provider of interactive 3D simulation software and solutions for maintenance training and support, today announced that it has been selected by the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) to deliver a Small Arms Virtual Task Trainer (VTT™) solution. Instructors will use the solution to train professionals who take basic and advanced firearms courses delivered at all four FLETC training sites. Professionals trained with the solution will include personnel from 91 federal agencies.

The solution incorporates 14 interactive 3D models of weapons such as the M16A4, M4 Carbine and Remington 870 Shotgun. The Small Arms VTT will enable students to develop operation and maintenance skills, such as cycle of operations, field stripping and weapons assembly.

By showing internal views of weapons and demonstrating complex relationships between parts, the NGRAIN solution will enable FLETC instructors to train students to standard in the most efficient manner possible. With the VTT solution, students will be able to interact with the virtual equipment and explore parts in real-time, as well as practice procedures while receiving automated feedback and guidance.

In addition to supporting instructor-led courses at training sites in Glynco, Georgia, Charleston, South Carolina, Cheltenham, Maryland, and Artesia, New Mexico, the solution will also be used for self-paced student learning across the web, providing more opportunities for review and practice.

“Over the past decade, military organizations have been using our solutions to communicate large amounts of information in less time with greater knowledge retention. This new project is a natural fit for our technology because homeland security and defense organizations share many of the same training requirements,” says Gabe Batstone, CEO, NGRAIN.

The VTT is a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software solution that incorporates instructional design best practices to deliver a customized training package. The Virtual Task Trainer leverages NGRAIN’s unique approach to interactive training – the 3KO® (3D Knowledge Object™) – an interactive 3D simulation that contains and visually communicates knowledge about the equipment it represents. Organizations can also use the NGRAIN Production Suite to rapidly develop their own VTT solutions.
