In 2004, the MILO Range designed and unveiled its first simulator—a computer-based system that provides myriad firearms training exercises without the need for live-fire—Multiple Interactive Learning Objective (MILO).

The MILO system provides instructors with the ability to test individuals and groups through interactive simulations, including classroom-based lessons and physical hands-on firearm training for use-of-force exercises. MILO Range systems are employed in more than 40 nations serving thousands of public safety and military agencies with its specially designed interactive environment.

The MILO Range Theater 300 system and control station allows for scenario manipulation projected on five laser screens. The addition of high definition surround further enhances the training experience obtained from the realistic artificial environment.

Duty-quality firearms and less-lethal devices use laser technology that, combined with MILO Range's brilliant theatrics, allows instructors and agencies to train and test subjects. A plethora of scenarios devised for security professionals, warfighters and home defenders are available.
