MILO Range has set the international standard for interactive use of force, tactical judgment training, and firearms training systems. We are a world-leading simulation provider to government, military, law enforcement, and police agencies worldwide. What sets MILO apart is that we don’t just offer a firearms simulator, but a fully customizable solution for use of force and judgment skills training, scenario-based crisis resolution rehearsal, and situational awareness training.
Customizable solutions and simulators
Our customizable simulations deliver safe and realistic training options that allow you to effectively train your team. We are continuously working to improve the capabilities of our systems, so you can be sure you are investing in a state-of-the-art solution that will perfectly fit your needs for years to come. Every officer is expected to walk into an emergency situation and make the right call. But a high-stress environment naturally constricts our perspective and limits our ability to reason beyond the moment. Immersive, emotionally engaging MILO simulations prepare officers to identify, process, and comprehend information about how to respond to any situation using cognitive load theory practices and OODA methodology. This is why using a firearms simulator results in a quality of training that can’t be achieved in a classroom.
While MILO’s “skill-focused” modes are akin to a very advanced firing range, the HD video scenarios offer a depth and breadth of police skills training otherwise unavailable. These are fully emotionally immersive role-playing simulation scenarios, shot in high-definition video, featuring branching decision trees. Every HD scenario can be run in an interactive low-light/flashlight conditions. Training weapons can be furnished to match whatever your officers need — handguns of all models, tactical rifles, shotguns, and less-lethal options (TASER, OC spray, batons, etc.)
But the focus isn’t just on shooting, because lethal force won’t always be the right choice. Unlike simple firearms training simulators (or “FATS,” as they’re commonly known), MILO offers scenario-based police training that requires the trainee to choose the appropriate tactic, whether or not that requires the use of a weapon. While marksmanship will always be of the utmost importance in our training simulators, police officers decision-making ability is often even more crucial in maintaining public safety. MILO Range’s custom immersive police firearm training simulators take police firearm training a step further, enabling law enforcement to have a controlled response in any situation. (MILO also offers solutions like DrivingForce, the industry’s only fully integrated police driver training and force-options simulator solution.)
Over and over again trainers and instructors report that the real value in their immersive MILO use-of-force training simulator is that it allows officers to zero in on the often subtle opportunities to change the course of an interaction, avoiding the need to use possibly deadly force. An immersive simulation also makes it possible to fully explore every ramification of each force option or tactic. We train your trainers to train your policy. As those policies change, so will your MILO firearms simulator. We invest time in understanding your needs and policies up front, then work closely with your team to develop and deliver the appropriate training solution. We’ll help you find the best way to integrate this custom solution into your training procedures, and support you in maintaining and evolving this solution as your policies and challenges inevitably change over time. We don’t just sell use-of-force simulators; we partner with agencies, subject-matter-experts, and seasoned instructors to develop customized immersive virtual firearms training solutions for any agency.
