Realistic environments provide real experience. But realistic simulation training must go beyond just the precise and accurate rendering of real-world conditions—from battlefield sandstorms and erratic city-street traffic to the unique response characteristics of a fire truck loaded with 8,000 pounds of sloshing water, a military MRAP in full armor, or a bus blowing a tire at highway speeds.
In order to be effective, simulation technology must also evoke the emotional reality of taking fire while inspecting an IED, coordinating multiple agencies after a plane crash, or walking into a heated domestic disturbance in a dim apartment. But a training simulator can prepare the trainee to work under the stress of these scenarios. They can learn to focus on performing at top-level, regardless of the environment, while maintaining awareness of their surroundings.
For more than forty years FAAC has created high-fidelity, highly accurate simulations for the military, first responders, law enforcement, municipal transit authorities, and research institutes. FAAC simulation training solutions are integrated, modular systems of hardware and software, configurable as single stand-alone units or multi-component, networked systems capable of accurately simulating complex multi-user/multi-unit/multi-agency scenarios.
FAAC solutions go beyond the simulation hardware and software. The real value in any immersive simulator training solution is in the opportunities it creates for instructors to pinpoint exactly where their students are succeeding and falling short. FAAC offers tools to facilitate the review and analysis of trainee performance, and create custom scenarios unique to your needs. As your policies and real-world conditions change, so will your simulation training solution.
FAAC embraces a “Customer for Life” philosophy. We invest time in understanding your specific needs, in terms of equipment, scenarios, policies, and people, so we can develop and deliver the appropriate turnkey solution. We’ll help you find the best way to integrate this custom simulation training solution into your programs. And we will support you in maintaining and evolving this solution as your challenges change over time.Because ultimately, it’s not about the technology – it’s about the quality of training.
We don’t sell equipment; we partner with agencies and their instructors to develop and create the ideal tools and training solutions for the most realistic—and effective—training experience. Our goal is to provide technology and expertise that results in a deeper learning experience. A skill learned within a simulation environment is more likely to translate into real-world behavior than a skill learned in a normal classroom setting. Simulation technology also allows the trainer to focus on specific areas where the student requires additional practice, and to rehearse scenarios until outcomes are improved. In this way, your company or agency can continue to develop and improve the learning process for the employee, ultimately leading to increased safety and confidence.
