Marines to get battle ready with VirTra simulator

VirTra Systems Inc. won a contract from the Marine Corps for its small-arms training simulator that should pave the way for continued procurement of the devices, company officials said.

The Marine Corps lease arrangement, worth more than $500,000, includes accessories such as VirTra Systems' training conversion systems for light and heavy weaponry, and customized, close-quarter battle scenarios specific to the Marine Corps.

Perry Dalby, VirTra Systems' chief executive officer, said the Marines chose VirTra Systems IVR 4G-300 simulator for this work. It will be used at an undisclosed facility, he said, to offer basic small-arms training and "fourth-generation urban warfare experience."

Fourth-generation warfare refers to a military contest between conventional and unconventional forces, specifically, combat between an army fielded by a recognized government and one outside of the control of the nations in the region where fighting is taking place.

VirTra Systems of Arlington, Texas, offers situational awareness firearms training systems to military agencies The company also produces multisensory promotional virtual reality systems and 3-D theaters.
