xReality Group (XRG) has been awarded a six-month paid trial to test its law enforcement system for virtual reality simulation-based training (VRSBT).

Through subsidiary Operator XR, the first-of-its-kind trial will run as an informative pre-cursor activity using an undisclosed foreign national police force, with the potential for future multi-programs.

The paid trial will run for six months and incorporate XRG technology and expertise to use virtual reality to enhance police officer safety on the front line.

“The decision to award this national trial to XRG further confirms the quality and effectiveness of the technology,” XRG CEO Wayne Jones said.

“We are currently experiencing a high level of demand from around the world from both military and law enforcement agencies,” Mr Jones said.

“We look forward to seeing the positive impact our technology can make on improving the safety and preparedness of those men and women on the frontline.”

The trial will immerse police into highly personalised scenarios and allow multiple officers to work together during the virtual simulations.

Police officers interacting within the system will be continuously monitored and use police equipment and weapons to make training as realistic as possible within virtual simulations.

XRG said virtual reality-based training with OperatorXR technology offered a low-cost and lower-risk alternative to traditional training approaches, reducing the demand for staffing resources.

XRG shares were up 4.44 per cent and trading at 4.7 cents at midday AEDT.
