Virtual Reality Training
Verify mission-readiness of your team
with virtual reality technology
that makes training affordable and accessible,
anytime, anywhere and with anyone.
First Responder Training Challenges:
- COVID impact on ability to train large teams.
- Budget cuts that limit training for complex emergencies.
- Logistical hurdles to organize large training events.
- Lack ability to track, measure and verify mission-readiness.
- Inferior training leads to decreased confidence in teams and equipment.
Virtual reality and augmented reality trainings for first responders directly address these challenges.
First Responders Experience High Stress & Trauma.
Funding constraints and high op-tempo often prevent first responders from training, especially for complex emergencies requiring large collective events. Continuous operations can cause first responders to lose their edge on critical skills. A loss of confidence can lead to higher stress, and ultimately undermine their physical, mental and emotional well being.
This is why we developed the HERO Platform to provide virtual and augmented reality training for first responders. Having access to virtual reality training for first responders can significantly reduce stress of scheduling and attending training. And, the platform provides performance analysis feedback to help both the trainee and commanders have confidence they are mission-ready.
We Understand That You Need A Better Way To Train First Responders

Austin/Travis County EMS AMBUS
This case study came from a collaboration with US Ignite as part of their Smart Gigabit Communities program. The Just-in-time VR Training for Ambus EMS was a success because it improved training outcomes at lower costs. See the results below and take a closer look at the AMBUS virtual reality training for first responders available now.
Increased Memory Recall
Improved cognitive and physical memory
of mission-critical tasks and up to a 45% reduction in errors.
Decreased Time on Task
Training resulted in up to a 29% reduction in time-on-task
and a 91% acceptance rate among cadets who participated.
82% of Austin EMS cadets felt prepared for the testing
of selected topics after participating in the AR & VR training.
Our trainings can be implemented at a 90% reduction
of the original cost of a traditional moulage-style training.

We Train Heroes
Every day, these men and women go out into a challenging and dangerous environment. Yet, budget constraints and high op-tempo’s prevent them from training as often as desired.
We understand that first responders are expected to be the heroes in these dangerous emergency situations. In order to do that, they need realistic training that is affordable and accessible anytime, anywhere and with anyone.
The problem is the available training for complex emergencies like active shooter, infectious disease, or mass casualty incidents is resource intense and challenging to verify mission-readiness.
At Augmented Training Systems, we developed a virtual reality and augmented reality training platform for first responders so that they can be the heroes in the moments that matter and return safely home to their families.
