MILO Range Simulator Accessories
MILO offers a broad range of tools and accessories for your MILO Range training simulator to expand your training options and enhance trainee experiences.
The Last Maestro
MILO offers “The Last Maestro™”—a groundbreaking, research-based platform to train law enforcement agencies, police officers, and military personnel, in empathy and resilience through the power of immersive technology.
Unlike passive mindfulness training, Maestro’s Virtual Reality training actively primes the brain by engaging all four systems of learning—cognitive, emotional, experiential, and behavioral, allowing trainees to disrupt the sympathetic (fight or flight) response before, during, and after training events and stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system, restoring first responders to a composed state before returning to duty.
Training with Maestro forms new neural networks in the brain, linked to emotions and behaviors that members of the police and military often subconsciously suppress.
The Last Maestro enables officers to practice fostering resiliency by accessing and building upon their reservoir of emotional, mental, psychological, and spiritual resilience through brief, powerful experiences eliciting a healing emotional response. An immersive Virtual Reality visual engages the participant’s autonomic and somatic nervous systems, while gamification keeps the individual focused on the experience and reduces the chance that they will remain focused on their existing trauma and stress conditioners.
The end result is a comprehensive soldier and officer fitness—a resilient law enforcement professional who responds to interactions with empathy, resilience, and mindfulness, and experiences increased positive mental health with less chance for long- and short-term post-traumatic effects.

MILO Range REACT!
MILO offers the industry’s first authentic wireless haptic feedback distraction device to replicate the stress-related challenges and physiological changes that occur in the human body during high-intensity training. Designed to look and be worn like a standard police body camera, the MILO Range React! trainee distraction device can be activated by the instructor at any time during a MILO scenario-based training event. The device will strobe flash, vibrate, and activate a piercing 80-120db alarm, with the purpose of distracting and stressing the trainee so that they can problem solve and resolve the crisis situation with minimal force and danger to themselves or community members.
The device is intended to replicate many of the challenges facing law enforcement officers in today’s world, with flashing cell phone cameras, distracting video recording devices, yelling and interference from bystanders, and externally introduced stressors that can cause officers to make mistakes in judgment and reaction.
The system also comes with a wrist-worn biometric feedback device, which allows the MILO system to track and record the trainee’s heart rate, and then replay that in the debrief in a graph synched to the scenario timeline so the trainee and instructor can see at what points the officers stress level increased.
Together, these two powerful tools make up the MILO Range React! Trainee Distraction device, which provides real results and measurable performance improvements. Unlike cruel and outdated trainee electroshock belts and electronic pain penalty devices that may leave the trainee with a dangerous “shoot first” mentality that can lead to negative outcomes, the MILO Range React! option will provide trainees, instructors, and administrators purposeful experiences and useful performance indicators by replicating the kind of distractions and stress-inducing events officers face on the streets in the real world of public safety.
Handguns and Pistols
MILO Range Simulators include lethal weapons options that provide trainees authentic weapons experiences in all scenarios with no permanent modification to the weapons.
Lethal weapons options include handguns and carbine options that are operated with either MILO dry-fire laser inserts for dry-fire (no-recoil) operation, or with MILO’s line of drop-in wireless recoil kits (WRK) for simulated shot recoil powered by CO2 or High-Pressure Air (HPA.).
Dry-fire lasers are fitted with different ring sets for each pistol caliber including .38, 9mm, .40, and .45 Auto.
WRK kits exist for dozens of widely used law enforcement and military weapons.
Each weapon can be assigned a unique laser ID to be associated with a particular trainee so that performance and participation can be tracked in the on-board statistics and management databases during MILO training sessions.
Carbines, Patrol Rifle and Long Guns
MILO Range Simulators support rifles, including shotguns and other long-barrel weapons systems, with both drop-in CO2 WRK recoil kits and dry-fire lasers. These options install in minutes and require no permanent modification to the weapon. Each weapon can be assigned a unique ID to be detected and individually identified during training sessions.
Dry-Fire Training Weapons
All MILO Range Use-of-Force products support almost every commonly used service weapon via included drop-in laser inserts or optional WRK kits, making the system ready to train right out of the box.
MILO Range Simulators support any double-action handgun that the agency provides, paired with a MILO Range dry-fire laser insert.
Other options include the“Red” Glock 17R, a special, inert training weapon with a re-setting trigger for dry-fire training made by Glock™ for use on MILO Range Training Systems, and SIRT™ brand dry-fire training pistols. All MILO systems work with Sirt training pistols, and many MILO models come with them included as part of the system.
Other Firearm Training Options
MILO also offers training-only weapons and WRK recoil simulation kits that quickly modify live service weapons into laser-based training weapons for use on the MILO Range simulator.
Please call for custom options—we also build and design new kits and lasers for different requirements.
Lowlight and Flashlight
The MILO Range Theater, Pro, and Advanced systems allow you to quickly toggle into lowlight/flashlight mode in all of the interactive training scenarios on the MILO systems, and many of the interactive skill-builder and course of fire exercises. Based on your training needs, the ambient lighting level can be adjusted “on the fly” from full darkness to varying levels of dusk to dawn ambient light.
Trainees and students can then deploy their low-light devices and react to challenging stimuli in the scenarios as they would in real-life, practicing and demonstrating proficiency with all issued equipment in all types of lighting conditions.
All MILO Range Theater, PRO, and Advanced systems include standard-duty flashlights and can support any flashlight model via custom-sized filters. The flashlight feature is completely wireless and does not use lasers, allowing the agency to train with any number of flashlights simultaneously.
MILO RANGE KINETIX
All MILO Range Theater, Pro, and Advanced systems now allow the addition of the MILO Range KinetiX options that provide new interaction and functionality for a variety of training objectives. This is an exclusive feature found only on the MILO Range Product line.
The MILO Range KinetiX can detect and respond to a variety of trainee verbal and non-verbal actions, providing a higher level of interactivity. MILO Range KinetiX is designed to detect and respond to a variety of trainee verbal and non-verbal actions, including:
- Baton Swings
- Punches, Strikes, and Kicks
- Defensive & Offensive Movements and Positions
- Customized Poses and Gestures
- Tactical Movement and Positions
- Speech and Verbal Commands
- Hand and arm movements and commands
MILO Range KinetiX takes the realism of training, interactivity, and responsiveness to an entirely new level never seen before in any type of firearm or use-of-force training systems. It can provide real-time point-of-view (POV) adjustments to the scenario and graphics field of view based on trainee movement and position.
This interactive, motion-based feature provides innovative training experiences for many tactical applications including corner clearing training, defensive tactics and cover as well as many crisis management and de-escalation training exercises.
LESS-LETHAL: Taser and Electronic Control Weapons (ECW)
The MILO Range Taser options offer the same degree spread that real Taser cartridges provide. MILO offers complete training models (non-live) for the X26P and X2 with removable cartridges and XDPM power modules.
Each Taser and ECW device used on the system can be assigned and detected during scenario training events by each trainee, with scenarios branching to a logical outcome when properly used and deployed.
Look for the X7 Taser coming soon…
Return Fire Shoot-Back System Options
The MILO Range systems offer the next generation in simulator shoot-back and return fire technology. The MILO Digi-Fire Tracking Return-Fire Cannon allows instructor-controlled aiming and firing capabilities on an all-electric platform—no dangerous compressed air tanks)—that allows the gun and pan/tilt unit to operate for weeks on one charge. The 9″ widescreen fire-control computer can be plugged in or used for up to 3 hours without any AC power allowing for use in locations other than your simulator room, including outdoors. All components recharge in approximately 2 hours. Li & NiMH technologies eliminate battery memory effect and the smart chargers turn themselves off when complete.
Digital A/V technology provides the option to both view and record audio and video during the training session from the subject’s point of view. The video files can then be played back immediately, transferred to the main simulator, and projected down range during debriefing, or archived to a flash drive for later viewing at any computer or for training documentation. Live remote viewing of the training sessions from another location is also possible.
MILO Return Fire System fires a 1/2″ group at 25 feet. The 6mm plastic projectile far exceeds the accuracy of the current foam “paintballs” used by other vendors. This accuracy translates into safety—while safety glasses should always be used, you will hit exactly where the red dot is located.
The MILO Return Fire System uses no air, CO2, leaky hoses, o-rings, and requires no travel to a paintball shop for repairs. There is no need for D.O.T. tank inspections, and no need to chase down inaccurate foam balls.
MILO RANGE ANYWHERE- “Un-Tethered Instructor”
The MILO Range Anywhere is an exclusive wireless hand-held device that offers instructors the ability to get out from behind the desk and work more closely with their trainees out in the training area or on the live-fire range. This freedom allows a sharper eye on the training and provides a one-on-one experience with the student. The familiar Windows® user interface is available on both the handheld PDA and a tablet PC and allows complete session control and system set-up. The MILO Range Anywhere is a great option for large simulator training rooms and live-fire ranges.
LESS-LETHAL: Projectile Based Devices and Tools
There are many simulated less-lethal projectile options available including all models of Beanbag and Chemical projectile weapons. Each weapon can be assigned a unique ID to be identified separately from all other weapons during scenario training events.
LESS-LETHAL: Oleoresin Capsicum (OC) Spray/Mace
Every MILO Range training Simulator includes hand-held, laser-modified OC devices similar to the MK5 canister used by law enforcement agencies around the world. Additional models and adapters are also available, including push-button and trigger laser activation. MILO Range systems offer simulation OC devices for both thumb-and trigger-fired OC devices. Each OC device can be assigned a unique ID to be uniquely identified during training.
LESS-LETHAL: Baton and Impact Devices
Batons and other less-lethal impact devices can be used on any MILO simulator. When a trainee decides that baton is the appropriate less-lethal device during a given scenario situation, the software response is activated by an instructor hotkey or automated by the system if equipped with the optional MILO KinetiX™ device. Baton training on the MILO system is fully interactive and includes the same branching and reactions as laser-based weapons and other less-lethal training options.
