The defence simulation and training firm plans to reveal its world-first AR trainer to global audiences
InVeris Training Solutions (IVTS) is set to debut its See-Rehearse-Collectively Experience (SRCE) augmented reality (AR) solution at a major upcoming event, it announced on Monday.
The defence training firm will unveil its world-first SRCE platform at World Defence Show in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, which will allow military personnel and law enforcement to practice full-scale missions with AR.
According to the IVTS’ data sheet, the SRCE standalone solution provides full freedom of movement along with real-time monitoring of location, orientation, and vitals for up to four learners in exercises.
Users can train with simulated tactical gear and BlueFire weapons to boost learner retention, muscle memory, and record performance data for real-time assessments and after-action reviews (AARs).
AARs can relay to instructors numerous data sets on a trainee’s eye movement, gun positions, bullet trajectory, successful hits, and movement in combat environments, among others.
The platform provides a complete setup of combat scenarios, including hostage crises, decoys, and hostile forces while on training grounds to provide realistic, real-time 3D interactions.
Al Weggeman, InVeris Chief Executive, said that AR enabled his firm to “combine virtual training in real-world locations,” adding,
“SRCE provides mission readiness training to global defense forces that is totally lifelike, seamless and customizable”
He also noted his company’s live-fire training exercises were equally important over InVeris’ 95 years of operations, where the Suwanee, Georgia-based firm would lead in its respective market.
Saudi Arabia’s General Authority for Military Industries founded the defence show, which is sponsored by mining and infrastructure giant Maaden.
The news comes after the training firm bought out Survivr, a virtual reality (VR) training provider, to expand its research and development (R&D) and develop further solutions to educate military and police forces to de-escalate civilian crises, leading to reduced confrontations and improved communication.

The partnership led to the creation of its Virtual Reality Decisions and Tactics (VRDT) programme, which incorporates HTC VIVE mixed reality (MR) headsets, haptics, and body tracking to train police officers in intense civilian environments.
IVTS debuted its VRDT trainer at the NSSF Shot Show in Las Vegas, Nevada in January this year, where attendees could practice demo VR experiences on the new platform.
