WHO IS USING VR? GLOBAL. FEDERAL. LOCAL.
At the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) annual meeting in Davos in 2016, participants discussed the growing role for public-private collaborations on how to tackle global security challenges.
Technological innovation was acknowledged as the most important tool we have to ensure international security.
The US Department of Defense has heard this clarion call and made virtual reality a priority from DARPA to the Walter Reed Army Medical Center’s Brain Readiness Program.
State and Local law enforcement agencies have also taken a strong interest in VR to respond to the rising costs of training.
“In March, lawmakers in Utah passed a bill that authorizes the Attorney General to fund a statewide virtual reality training center for use of force and de-escalation.” (2016, The Guardian)

V-Armed is the latest addition to the Animated Storyboards family of businesses, which, for 15 years, has been a leading supplier of motion capture animation and computer generated imagery to the advertising industry.
V-Armed boasts a global cadre of animators, engineers, designers, producers and directors working around the clock.
It’s the reason their global work flow so seamlessly translates to the development of virtual reality tools.
Their 15 years of experience can help you respond to shifting forms of warfare and crime in real time.
“Emerging technologies create challenges, but also opportunities to solve them.” (WEF, 2016)

Economies of scale
Because V-Armed uses animation, no scenarios have to be re-cast or re-shot.
They simply edit the content.
Rounds of ammo & travel saved
A variety of cost options
Because of their global workflow, V-Armed is poised to affordably customize scenarios in:
Situational Awareness Training
Medic Response Training

V-Armed can customize as many locations, scenarios, and adaptations as clients require.
With such an impressive panoply, clients get more sophisticated simulations and more complete immersion than what other technology firms have offered in the past.
AS A CLIENT, WHAT WILL THE PROCESS LOOK LIKE?
Your subject-matter teams are assigned to choosing and analyze individual scenarios from which V-Armed will build training modules.
Then, V-Armed assigns a production team to your project to help you map it out and implement a production schedule.
This process helps their team program/produce branching-out options for each scenario.
Perhaps you’d like a no-win option or maybe a scenario that takes the players from briefing to arrest with chokepoints that highlight team working ability.
You’ll get to approve each scenario before V-Armed delivers it to you for use in training, and these scenarios are updatable, as your needs change, without having to go back to square one.
Because all scenarios are computer-generated, it’s easy to alter scenarios.
The briefing process helps V-Armed understand not only what your goals are for your trainees, but how you would like to assess their performance.
V-ARMED is a subsidiary of Animated Storyboards Ltd., a leading supplier of motion capture animation and CGI, and comprises of a global team of 350 animators, gaming developers, engineers, designers, VR technicians and project managers.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR ASSESSMENT
You will be able to play back the trainee’s performance and measure speed and accuracy.
You may also wish to have your own face-to-face talk-back that either helps the trainee improve or validates his/her judgments.
V-ARMED CLIENT SUPPORT PROVIDES:
Direct access to your own trainer and technical support team
Training of your proctors at your site or theirs
System updates when new technology emerges
V-Armed offers a new generation of simulation that reduces the cost of training, ensures greater precision and saves lives.
A demonstration on simulation can be arranged at their office or yours.
