IES Interactive Training’s MILO Range PRO Use-of-Force Training Simulators Now Offer up to 16 Laser Device Capability
Significantly expands number of trainees and force options training devices available over other systems in the market
Ann Arbor, Mich—IES Interactive Training has long been recognized for industry-leading innovations, responsive solutions, and high-quality, robust force-option training simulators for law enforcement and public safety agencies around the world. In keeping with this decade old tradition, IES has developed and introduced the first interactive force-options training simulator, the MILO Range PRO, that has the capability to register, identify, replay and store up to 16 individual laser devices on a single, portable system. This capability allows agencies to break-out of the 4 or 6 “lane” limitation on other law enforcement simulators, and utilize the system to accommodate the way they actually train and operate instead of modifying training to fit within the limitations of the system.
“Law enforcement force options technology, particularly in the area of less-lethal weapons, have advanced greatly in the last few years, with new technologies being developed and introduced at a stunning pace” commented Robert McCue, IES Director of Business Development. “Tasers, directed energy devices, pepper-ball, the FN-303, patrol rifle and long-range target interdiction weapons have become standard operating equipment in many cases with our nation’s first responders. We thought it was important to build a system that embraced that reality, rather than limiting trainees to a simple 4 or 6 lane option typically suited for shoot-don’t-shoot training with limited lesslethal options.”
This innovation, exclusively from IES Interactive Training, allows agencies who have or are acquiring IES MILO Range systems to outfit trainees with up to 16 individually identifiable laser-fitted force option devices. The system will identify each device by a unique code, recording what device was deployed by whom, when and how it was used, and the fall of fire and reaction time for each. This information is then replayed immediately to the trainee or team, and can be stored for later review, summarized in the report generator, or captured externally to agency training records.
“The 16 device capability, unique to the IES MILO Range systems, is another first in a long history of bringing innovations to the law enforcement use-of-force simulation training system market” said McCue. “We have been listening to what training officers tell us they need and where other systems fall short, resulting in a training simulator that is truly designed by officers for officers.”
“All IES MILO Range and MILO Range PRO systems can easily add this capability to their systems through a simple plug and play installation, thanks to the system’s modular design and standard’s based technologies.” said Jason Lamons, IES Director of Operations. “This enables trainers to add more force-options to the training environment without leading trainees into a decision event through the exclusion of other force options because they don’t have enough unique laser device capability on their systems."
To add this capability to your current IES MILO Range PRO system, or to inquire about trading-in or upgrading your current simulator, regardless of brand, call IES Interactive Training for more details and information.
