Adaptive Virtual Reality Training Reveals AVRT v3 for Simulated Dismounted Combat Training

The Adaptive Virtual Reality Training (AVRT) system for Military training V3 made its first UK appearance anywhere in the world at Larkhill with the British Army and supported by the UK’s Export Support Team (EST). Attendees at the demo sessions included representatives from across the UK MOD, Overseas Armed Forces, UK Emergency Services, Further Education and Industry. This deployment of the brand new version of the system for simulated dismounted combat training included one of the largest free-roam VR military training environments the UK has ever seen at 400 square meters, as well as the capability for up to 12 soldiers to train together in the same virtual environment (5 soldier’s hardware was included at the Larkhill demo).

Soldiers are able to move freely and naturally around the training space, using real-world weapons that are familiar to them and provide active feedback. The AVRT system allows military instructors to create varied training scenarios using the building blocks that the system provides such as detailed 3D environments, highly configurable scenario actors and variations such as lighting, location and terrain. Digital enemies are either AI-driven or fully instructor-controllable to deliver scenarios to existing curricula or frameworks. Soldier vs soldier (PvP) within this system adds yet another element of capability. The AVRT system is commercially available now and is in use by the Singapore Army having purchased the system in summer 2023.

Andy Higgs from AVRT said: “It’s great to be here at Larkhill with representatives from all over the British Army and beyond. The AVRT Training system is an incredible tool for the trainer’s toolkit and we’ve had so much interest from the attendees. This setup has demonstrated that simulated dismounted training is a truly realistic option for our armed forces and can be easily deployed to provide scalable, de-risked, cost-effective and purposeful training for soldiers.”

The Adaptive Virtual Reality Training (AVRT) platform is a cutting edge, fully immersive and wireless free-roam VR system. Designed for the training of Emergency Services, Military and High-Risk operatives, in scenarios that may be difficult or prohibitive to simulate otherwise. The system has been developed in a truly Human-centric way, with feedback from over 5000 Military and Law Enforcement personnel from the UK and beyond. Integrated real-world weapons and objects, detailed environments and an extensive library of characters, weapons and situations allow instructors to build a training simulations that are tailored to the exact learning outcomes desired, delivering existing curricula and frameworks out of the box. First person and full 3D replays, body positioning and metrics such as distances and shot placement all come together to provide effective assessment methods that aren’t possible with traditional training provisions.
