Survitec has negotiated a license and supply agreement with Battlefield Sim Limited (trading as the Inflatable Wall Company) to manufacture and market the latter’s inflatable wall portfolio.
The Inflatable Walls Training System (IWTS), is a unique training experience for military and law enforcement with which users can design, plan, build and train in any terrain, in any location. Using a system that simulates the environment operators will find themselves in helps to improve performance and enhance survivability by improving familiarisation and boosting confidence. Under the agreement, Survitec will provide all services necessary to develop the market for this innovative non-ballistic firearms training capability through its global network of sales and product support teams.
Tested and approved for use with Simunition non-lethal training ammunition, operators can measurably test skills in fully tailored and realistic training scenarios, with the help of FITLIGHT technology that records reaction time to threats, assisting users to achieve ultimate training efficiency. The IWTS is available in six different packages, as well as a bespoke solution which can be tailored to specific customer needs. It is also available in four skin colours to accurately replicate the environments it is deployed in and offers the option of customer-specific designs.
The rapidly configurable training system is composed of a variety of common building shapes and fixtures to allow the user to recreate any environment or scenario and the fully interchangeable system is reusable, compact and easy to transport.
Survitec inflatable technology has been deployed in some of the largest programmes in the world, including G-suits and life preservers for the F-35 LIGHTNING II aircraft, liferafts for the US Navy and in products including high-performance rigid-hulled inflatable boats, mass evacuation systems and specialist man portable stretchers for medical and CBRN extraction.
“Survitec has a long and proud history of using inflatable technology in a range of different safety products and so it is a natural fit that the IWTS comes under our umbrella and stands to benefit from our ever-developing expertise in the defence sector,” commented Survitec’s Global Category Manager, David Stelling.
