Unlike screen and other simulators, in the 50 x 100 x 15-ft VIRTSIM system site, the trainee's entire body is vulnerable to 360° threats from snipers, ambush teams, explosive devices, and friendly fire.

Raytheon Co. and Motion Reality Inc. entered into an exclusive value-added reseller agreement to offer virtual 3-D mission and training applications to military, law enforcement, and security forces. The agreement pairs Raytheon's defense and government systems expertise with MRI's motion-capture technology, VIRTSIM. VIRTSIM can immerse up to 12 subjects wearing wireless head-mounted displays and using actual or simulated weapons. This real-time, untethered experience is enhanced by muscle stimulation technology, and the systems can be networked from multiple locations for distributed training. The immersive 360° systems support force-on-force training and virtual artificially intelligent avatars that respond to actions and voice commands.
