The Theater 300, from MILO Range Training Systems, utilizes five high-definition projectors and Surround Sound to envelope trainees within 300-degrees of interactive surfaces, providing the company’s most fully immersive use-of-force training experience. The system, which offers scenario authoring that allows a single instructor to run a simulation that responds to the actions and decisions of the user/users, is compatible with the company’s line of simulated firearms and will register fired hits and misses accordingly.
