Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What does MILO stand for?
Multiple Interactive Learning Objectives
When we first designed and released the MILO simulator systems in 2004, it was unique because, for the first time, you could use one computer-based system to accomplish several training tasks in the same location at once, including classroom-based lessons, instructional presentations, interactive-individual and group testing, and scoring, physical hands-on firearms and use of force training exercises and scenarios. This multiple training and testing capability lead to the acronym MILO.
What funding and finance options are available?
MILO does not directly finance or lease systems. Most agencies and customers use public or private funds to procure MILO systems for law enforcement and public safety training. Some agencies use grants and awards provided by DOJ and other federal sources for training systems specializing in de-escalation, critical incident management training, and decision/judgmental training under stress. We offer financing and leases through third-party finance companies specializing in large equipment financing for our commercial and private customers. Click here for more information.
