We Drive Training Innovation
Raydon provides world class virtual reality based training solutions that are built towards common goals of driving up proficiency and driving down costs for the customers that we serve. Our solutions drive user operational proficiency in situations where lives are on the line. Our training product save soldiers’ lives.
We take a commercially minded approach to develop commercial off the shelf training solutions that are available NOW, through our rental program or purchase. We don’t wait years for the standard material development process to create opportunity. We are in the business of saving lives by training now. We propel our product lines with strong R&D investments to fuel training innovation and claim multiple defense market firsts:
- 2003 – First to market Convoy Operations Training System
- 2006 – First to market Individual Mounted Machine Gun Training System
- 2009 – First to market Route Clearance Training System
- 2015 – First to market Stryker Crew/Platoon Training System
An Infrastructure Based Approach
Our difference is rooted in our process of product development and how we work with our customers. We don’t build singularly minded training products, but rather infrastructure solutions that are highly scalable and adaptable as needs change. By aiming to fully understand our customer’s long term goals, we are able to deliver training that solves near term needs while growing to meet the long term objectives.
Our tiered infrastructure model drives training proficiency and saves money, period. It allows you to choose devices based on your need and constraints, not be forced to work around limitations of the simulation equipment.
Elite Training Centers
High Wattage & High Fidelity
Support a high-end computational, visual and physical training center with high utilization and a high-power kilowatt profile. For example, these centers could include 6 DOF motion platforms, reconfigurable vehicle cabs, complex psychomotor skill development platforms with cognitively complex content sets. Commanders would have the means to prepare units for any collective mission up to company level and do so in a high-fidelity training environment.
Trailerized Training Solutions
High Throughput Surge Assets
Support surge needs and increase throughput while minimizing training event time. This should be a rental model, with a mobile fleet loaded with a diverse set of training platforms. The fleet would need to have tailored fidelity levels and would need to be loaded with mission and training content that is relevant, modern and continually updated. It is the “workhorse” of the infrastructure.
Organic Training Assets
Modular & Mobile
Bring skill development to the soldier. These highly mobile, low-cost and self-contained training systems were designed to build and retain combat skills over longer periods of time. They allow warfighters to practice their mission at Homestation using any time available with little to no set-up time. They are relatively simple and self-paced, extremely mobile (suitcase sized) and have the same content as the higher fidelity training systems. Organic assets like these operate at the lowest cost per training hour and are the most affordable of all of our training assets.
