TEMPE, Ariz., Oct. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VirTra Systems (OTC Pink: VTSI), a leading provider of use of force simulators and firearms training simulators to military, law enforcement agencies and other organizations, today announced that it has recently received an award from the U.S. Secret Service, a bureau of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, for approximately $1.2 million.
The systems employ multiple screens, realistic video training content and an electric impulse return fire system to simulate the stress of real-world situations – ultimately to help prepare agents in judgmental use of force encounters. Using VirTra's highly-advanced systems, officers are better prepared for hostile situations with skills honed and refined in realistic scenarios before lives are on the line.
Jason Mulcahy, VirTra's General Manager, said, "It is our goal at VirTra to exceed the expectations of the customer and expand our footprint throughout the world so as to bring the greatest training benefits to the largest number of professionals. The safety of the officers employed by our customers as well as those they encounter on a daily basis are critically important to VirTra and this sale helps in all respects."
Bob Ferris, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of VirTra, commented, "We are honored to add the U.S. Secret Service to our growing list of Federal customers who've selected VirTra's training simulators and accessories. One of our key strategic objectives is leveraging our extensive investment in realistic use of force and ballistically accurate marksmanship simulators for the benefit of additional agencies within the U.S. Government. I think our product line and record of successfully supporting other Federal agencies helped us to secure this award. We appreciate the opportunity to serve this new customer and look forward to working alongside them for years to come."
