HGXR, a provider of XR training and simulation solutions and division of HOLOGATE, has integrated its XR platform with advanced training tools from Haptech Defense Systems, Inc. This collaboration represents a major leap forward, says the company, in the realm of virtual military training, integrating highly realistic simulated training devices to better prepare armed forces for the challenges of the future.

The HGXR platform has expanded to include Haptech’s M4-ERS, a simulated M4 carbine successfully deployed by HGXR for customers such as the German Army. The Haptech M4-ERS faithfully reproduces the precise look, feel and operation of the real weapon and is powered by a battery designed to accurately mimic a 30-round magazine.

HGXR incorporates hyper-reality technology, full-body tracking, haptic feedback, and physical effects into its XR training and simulation solutions for immersive and realistic experiences.

An integral aspect of these immersive experiences lies in the authentic operation of physical equipment. Haptech’s patented Electromagnetic Recoil System (ERS) is a fully electronic platform that creates powerful recoil, captures data from users’ interactions with the simulated weapons, and wirelessly communicates that data to the core system–employed inside of highly realistic form factors.

The company believes the HGXR system sets a new standard in skill development within virtual environments and paves the way for enhanced learning experiences. Studies show that XR enables a supercharged “learning by doing” process, with VR learners four times more focused and faster in their training, and 275% more confident in applying new skills after training.
