Training for first responders and the military must be diverse, comprehensive, and adaptable, which is why agencies around the world have trusted MILO since 1994 for their most challenging learning objectives. But missions and operational environments change, and so does training.

Holistic training must be Live, Virtual, and Cognitive—a continuum that is flexible, non-linear, and highly adaptive to each agency, and to every individual. 

MILO has embarked on a global paradigm shift in training that recognizes the need for deeper cognitive training objectives and systems that facilitate that.  With the building of the cognitive division and the acquisition of Shooting Range Industries, MILO now has the products, creativity, drive, and background to develop innovative new training products with the latest technology, tailored to specific customer demand and needs, whether those needs are for tactical firearms training, de-escalation and active bystander training, or something completely new to meet rapidly evolving objectives.

MILO Live — a global provider of state-of-the-art shooting range and live-fire training systems and solutions, designed and tested to ensure ultimate shooter safety. MILO can design the range and provide the firearm training equipment that’s right for the needs of your organization. Whether you need a modular ballistic enclosed live-fire simulator to meet Military Live Fire Training requirements, or a customized range to meet the specific needs of law enforcement within the constraints of time and space, MILO Live can offer state-of-the-art live shooting ranges for military, law enforcement agencies, firearms professionals, and private enthusiasts in need of an improved capacity to provide live fire training. Our commitment to excellence has not changed and we will continue to be the same trusted partner used by agencies around the world.

MILO Virtual — a simulation training systems provider for government, military, law enforcement, and police agencies, for critical incident training, de-escalation, decision support training, traditional tactical judgment training, and firearms proficiency training. With simulations, scenario-based training, and mission-specific interactive judgment training, MILO Virtual can meet your robust training needs — any time, anywhere, any space, any place. From the portable MILO Range M-SATS (Mobile-Situational Awareness Training System) to the fully immersive MILO Range Theater and Shoot House systems, MILO Virtual provides hundreds of complex dynamic video training scenarios, graphics-based firearms skill-builder drills, and industry-leading tactical training features. MILO Virtual is your team in the center, focused on virtual integration with live and cognitive divisions to the left and right.

MILO Cognitive — an evidence-based approach to advanced learning solutions, including curriculum, custom content, outreach, and partnerships to expand your training program and keep you on the cutting edge of research and regulatory guidance. MILO Cognitive will help your agency overcome training challenges and integrate deep learning methods like stress inoculation and counter-bias training, using brain science and strategies and informed by a team of researchers, master practitioners, and best-in-class partners, including the NeuroLeadership Institute and the Simulated Hazardous Operational Tasks (SHOT) Laboratory at Washington State University. With MILO Cognitive, your comprehensive training program will target specific training objectives with applied science solutions, supporting the whole officer and the complexity of their mission.

Featured MILO Range Solution and Simulator

Customizable Solutions and Firearms Simulators

MILO has set the international standard for interactive use of force, tactical judgment and firearms training systems, and range design. We are a world-leading firearms training simulator and range design provider for government, military, law enforcement, and police agencies worldwide.

Our customizable simulations deliver safe and realistic training options that allow you to effectively train your teams in both the use of firearms and less-lethal force options.  We have both simulation (MILO Virtual) and live-fire (MILO Live) training options available, with (MILO-Cognitive) components to integrate at any point. We are continuously working to improve our systems’ capabilities, 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 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 vivid MILO simulations prepare officers to identify, process, and comprehend information about how to respond to any situation, whether it requires the use of their firearm or not.

While MILO’s “skill-focused” modes are akin to a very advanced firing range, the HD and 4K video scenarios offer a depth and breadth of police and military skills training otherwise unavailable. These are fully emotionally immersive role-playing scenarios, shot in high-definition or 4K video, featuring branching decision trees that simulate real-world encounters. Every scenario can be run in interactive low-light/flashlight conditions on the fly. Training weapons can be furnished to match whatever your officers need — handguns of all models (including options with both live-fire and dry-fire rounds), tactical rifles, shotguns, even less-lethal options (TASER, OC spray, batons, etc.). With a MILO use of force simulator, your trainees can go beyond just target practice.

But the focus isn’t just on shooting skills because force won’t always be the right choice. Instead, 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, police officers’ split-second decision-making ability is often even more crucial in maintaining public safety and effectively de-escalating the situation. MILO custom 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 use-of-force training simulator is that it allows officers to identify human behavior cues and zero-in on the often subtle opportunities to change the course of an interaction, perform effective de-escalation, create some space, and avoid the need to use possibly deadly force. An immersive simulation also makes it possible to fully explore every possible outcome of each force option or tactic. We enable your trainers to teach your use-of-force policy and the laws and regulations behind them with research-based tools, including curriculum in the most immersive technology available. As those policies change, so will your firearms training simulator. We invest time in understanding your needs and policies upfront and then work closely with your team to develop and deliver the appropriate training solutions. 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 and their instructors to develop their ideal immersive virtual firearms training system that will enhance training for years to come.
