ARES Security Adopts Leading Visualization Product for Virtual Training Solution

Burlingame, CA, September 30, 2014 – ARES Security Corporation announced today that they will release BluTrain version 2.0 based on Bohemia Interactive Simulations’ Virtual Battle Space 3 (VBS3) product to provide a 3D interactive training simulation solution. By exploitingVBS3, the leading virtual simulation tool used by military and civilian security organizations, BluTrain will provide security customers the ability to train their guard forces on techniques and procedures all within an immersive virtual representation of their facility.

BluTrain powered by VBS3 will provide high fidelity visualization and simulation capabilities. Security forces will be able to use BluTrain in multiple ways from familiarizing new guards with virtual walk-throughs of their facilities to training seasoned guards on multiple conflict scenarios that vary in adversaries, targets and responses.  In addition, performance can be evaluated through video playback to assess the safety and skill of each trainee.

“By using VBS3, BluTrain will allow customers the ability to assess their current and future security posture and train their guard forces all within an immersive real-world environment,” explains Robert Scott, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Marketing for ARES Security. “Our customers will increase the effectiveness of training by providing frequent virtual exercises while reducing the cost of training and guard down time experienced by traditional training methods.”

To see the new VBS3 capabilities in the BluTrain solution visit ARES Security Corporation’s booth, #137, at ASIS International’s 60th Annual Seminar and Exhibits in Atlanta, Georgia from September 29 through October 2.
