Enabling Your Modern Training Strategy


We know what it feels like to manage complex training scenarios
with large teams, increased task demand and limited budgets.

If you’re like us, you’ve felt the pain of conducting complex training events.
With many restrictions like timing, funding, and safety considerations, we understand your frustrations can be high.
When combined with limited feedback and analysis to ensure the ROI on these training events, you shouldn’t have to risk the mission-readiness of your team.

You’ve likely wondered if there’s a better way to run your training events leveraging newer technology to provide more opportunities to train and prepare your teams.
Finding this better way is what Augmented Training Systems is all about.

At Augmented Training Systems, we get it.

We uniquely understand how necessary effective training is to the safety and health
of the public as well as limiting trauma and stress to first responders.

This is why we developed a modern training platform to immerse first responders into virtual and augmented reality training experiences.

This makes it possible for first responders to gain the necessary skills to respond in high-stress situations, enhancing their confidence and performance in these spaces with more robust training opportunities and advanced metrics proving they are mission-ready.

Our team is composed of a multidisciplinary group experienced in:

  • VR/AR UX design & research
  • Training psychology
  • Military leadership
  • Entrepreneurship

Where It All Started.

Hurricane Harvey Response Team Looks To Virtual Reality.

When we began to realize that we could develop simulations that impacted people psychologically, we began to really question what other ways could virtual reality be used to assist human performance? We had been approached by the city of Austin who were struggling with training for large-scale events. Then, Hurricane Harvey happened, which devastated the coast of Texas. 

  • The city of Austin was part of that response team. And, one of the entities that was being deployed in that kind of event was this thing called the ambulance bus. It’s called an AMBUS. It’s about an 18 Wheeler sized bus that’s for mass casualty events to help transport people and help treat individuals. It’s deployed in these events  like hurricane response. The city of Austin reached out to us realizing that they did no’t have enough training on the AMBUS in regards to how it functions,  how it’s equipped and where things are located within it.
  • It was critical to quickly enable the AMBUS team on how to perform in an incident when on the bus and while using the assets of the bus in those events. We were approached by the city to develop some training for the ambulance bus. This began by having a discovery session with the city. Together, we spent a couple of hours trying to figure out what the training should look like and what it should consist of.
  • Then we moved on to what traditional training would look like. How do we incorporate both a traditional training and evidence around what should be in simulations and pair them and match them with what needs to be learned and understood in the ambulance bus space. That provided amazing results for the City of Austin and launched Augmented Training Systems into the existence.
