TEMPE, Ariz. — VirTra, Inc., a global provider of training simulators for the law enforcement, military, educational and commercial markets, has been awarded an indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract from the Department of State for the Republic of Mexico with a value of $1.6 million.
Under this new contract, the company will deliver VirTra Driver Training Systems (V-DTS) and use-of-force simulators with drop-in weapon recoil kits to numerous state police academies and correctional facilities in Mexico.
