With Apex Officer’s virtual reality military training simulator, the military and their soldiers can prepare for thousands of different training scenarios in a safe, immersive, and controlled environment.

Apex Officer, an international provider of virtual reality training simulators for the police, law enforcement, military, first responder, commercial and educational markets, officially launched their virtual reality military training simulator for training soldiers and new recruits.

Apex Officer is providing the United State military and their soldiers with the opportunity to experience the newest technological revelation in training: virtual reality. The military and Defense agencies are taking advantage of virtual reality technology such as Apex Officer so that soldiers can accumulate thousands of hours preparing for various training situations in both a safe and controlled environment.

Apex Officer’s team has spent years working with their early military customers and partners to ensure their training content is superior in quality, realism, immersion, and relevance. Apex Officer also employs a number of subject matter experts that helped guide the development of their military and combat training system and scenarios.

“Apex Officer’s virtual reality training platform is a game-changer for training technology and is transforming the face of military and Defense training,” said Chase Dittmer, chairman and CEO of Apex Officer. “Outdated technology is preventing soldiers from training effectively and efficiently. Our training platform was designed on the frontlines by soldiers, for soldiers to save time, money and, most importantly, save the lives of our brave armed forces and the civilians they have protecting.”

The Apex Officer virtual reality military training system is capable of simulating an infinite number of different training scenarios that can convey everything from body language and other non-verbal threat cues that are a crucial part of progressive use of force and de-escalation training. The Apex Officer training simulator utilizes virtual reality technology and offers an immersive 360-degree view and includes peripheral vision and training tools that closely match those used in the field to enhance the transferability of the training to real-life scenarios.

Apex Officer’s VR training simulator features a wide range of VR Training Weapons (VTW) designed specifically for virtual reality military training. These virtual training weapons are similar in size, shape, and appearance to their real-life counterparts, but do not cause harm to their owners. They are used during virtual reality combat training and simulations which are designed to instruct new soldiers (or other personnel) in the skills and techniques needed for front line action.

“As the variety and type of threats to our armed forces and citizens alike continues to grow, many Defense agencies are looking towards innovative technology to better train their soldiers in a safe and cost-effective manner,” said Chase Dittmer. “Unlike competing training simulators, Apex Officer’s VR training platform provides a truly immersive, fully integrated, and real virtual reality experience.”

Train the Trainer

In addition to Apex Officer’s virtual reality military training simulator, the company also provides training to instructors on how to use Apex Officer’s platform. Apex Officer’s Train the Trainer program is designed to give the instructor/training manager the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully design, develop and implement various training simulations using static, dynamic and interactive training principles.
