Technology around the world is constantly improving, which influences the Air Force to keep up with these new developments by innovating and finding ways to effectively train Airmen.
At Dyess Air Force Base, Texas, these updates can be seen in various virtual reality training systems. Now, the 7th Security Forces Squadron is implementing the newly-improved Multiple Interactive Learning Objectives (MILO) training simulator as part of their regular training curriculum.
“The MILO is a 300-degree training simulator which fully immerses our trainees in many different scenarios they may encounter,” said Staff Sgt. Jordan Valentine, 7th SFS instructor. “This new system forces the Airmen that go through it to really be aware of their surroundings and create muscle memory, unlike our older system which has them stationary in front of one screen.”
The MILO consists of five screens, placing trainees in the center. During each encounter, Airmen are able to train on the most efficient positions to stand or walk while being recorded from above to review how they handled themselves.
