XR Training has been awarded a production agreement through an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with Consortium Management Group, Inc. (CMG) on behalf of Consortium for Command, Control and Communications in Cyberspace (C5) with the U.S. Marine Corps to develop a driver training system for the Amphibious Combat Vehicle.

OTAs allow federal agencies to enter into agreements rapidly with non-traditional defense contractors, such as small businesses, research institutions, and nonprofit organizations.

Led by XR Training, a consortium of small businesses including Talon Simulations, 302 Interactive, and Theory Studios in Orlando will work together to fulfill the agreement, producing 81 simulators by the end of 2024. The companies will then be tasked with providing two-plus years of training and sustainment services.

“This follow-on commitment both validates our idea and demonstrates that military leaders understand the need to use XR technologies for our most sacred of tasks. That is, protecting our young Marines as they prepare to take on any threat,” said Neil Levin, CEO of XR Training.

The Amphibious Combat Vehicle Training System solves the U.S. Marines’ initial task of providing volume-based training, as well as solutions that utilize the emerging technologies today’s Marines have grown up using. Combining virtual reality software with hardware that reinforces the training experience through motion and tactile engagement, the system enables soldiers to train in a realistic environment simulating real-world Warfighter scenarios.

“When we first took on the challenge of developing Warfighter training tools for the next generation, we knew XR would be crucial to not only creating a viable solution, but also bringing the Corps emerging technologies other industries have long been implementing to improve efficiency and effectiveness,” Levin said.
