Extended Reality (XR) Environments

BlueHalo is a world leader in simulation and training for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) and a trusted provider of virtual operator-in-the-loop simulators for various weapon systems (Stinger Missile, M4 Rifle, Carl Gustaf gunner).

Virtual-Stinger-Trainer

Virtual Stinger Trainer (VST)

The VST is the first and only fielded Virtual Reality based MANPADS training device that provides Stinger Team Crew Training that supports portable or fixed training sites. VST provides the Stinger Team (Team Leader and Gunner) operational and tactical training in a 360° immersive, realistic battlefield environment, including visual aircraft recognition (VACR). The VST instructor station provides a selection of instructor defined training scenarios that include varying terrain, moving aircraft targets and countermeasures. VST includes a detailed AAR/scoring presentation of Gunner actions.

Reconfigurable Virtual Trainer (RVT)

Reconfigurable Virtual Trainer™(RVT)

The RVT provides operational and tactical small squad training in a 360° immersive, realistic battlefield environment, including visual aircraft recognition (VACR). RVT is highly transportable and scalable to fit most training needs. The system’s visual system, weapons, and training assets are untethered and provide full freedom of movement within the training arena. RVT allows users to dynamically reconfigure each training scenario to immerse trainees in any geographic area in the world 24/7.

IMTS

Improved Moving Target Simulator (IMTS)

IMTS is a fully immersive Man-Portable Air-Defense System (MANPADS) operator training system. IMTS features a 38’-diameter dome providing trainees a 360° high-resolution view of the synthetic world around them along with 3D sound of the environment. Up to three MANPADS teams plus a machine gun team can simultaneously train against threat aircraft and ground vehicles. IMTS weapons match form and function to actual weapons while providing real-time position and orientation tracking against targets in the dome. Operator performance is continually measured by the Instructor Operator Station (IOS) and includes recording and playback for after-action review.  Instructors can rapidly tailor training exercises to set trainee locations in the virtual world and configure the environment’s time of day, weather and atmospherics.

VAMPIRE® UAS Embedded Training

VAMPIRE® is a fully embedded UAS training simulation for all operator functions and emergency procedures for family-of-systems sUAS, including Raven®, Wasp™, and Puma™. VAMPIRE® runs on fielded Panasonic Toughbook and Ground Control Station with no modification to fielded hardware and software, so you can train as you fight – any where, any time.

Vampire® Bi-Directional Advanced Trainer (BAT)

VAMPIRE® BAT is an embedded trainer that runs on fielded One System Remote Viewing Terminal (OSRVT) hardware and trains operators on basic OSRVT operations as well as bi-directional capability. It simulates operator interaction with UAS without a requirement for live flight and uses geo-specific terrain and tactical scenarios to train operators in advanced OSRVT operations. The trainer also includes embedded training videos and Interactive Multimedia Instruction (IMI). VAMPIRE® BAT runs on fielded Panasonic Toughbook and Ground Control Station with no modification to fielded hardware and software, so you can train as you fight – anywhere, any time.

VAMPIRE® Institutional Training System (ITS)

An extension of BlueHalo’s successful VAMPIRE® embedded training system, we offer a classroom training enabler for sUAS with Vampire ITS.
