Studying the shooting simulators presented on the world market, we are always trying to understand the idea of the developer and what exactly he wanted to embody in his invention.
In this review, we will talk about a manufacturer whose main goal in developing a shooting simulator was to create a cost-effective weapon training tool for organizations with a limited budget. It's about the American company iMarksman. Today, the company introduces virtual shooting galleries on the market with a large library of simulated real life situations, which allow, through a free outcome, to develop judgment skills, as well as learn methods of conflict de-escalation. The developer points out the benefits of such training for law enforcement officers and members of the armed forces.

How to use iMarksman

By purchasing iMarksman kits, you get electronic weapons. The range of the company is not so great. The site presents: a laser pistol, similar to the Glock 17/22, and a semi-automatic laser rifle similar to the AR 15. You also get unique software, which is actually the main element of the virtual shooting range. The number of programs depends on the equipment purchased. The company has software for training police officers and military personnel. There are also home simulator programs suitable for USPSA and IPSC performance training, as well as programs for civilians aimed at personal self-defense training.
In addition, the iMarksman range includes entertaining games that can be used both in business and equip your home with a modern recreation area for adults and children. Also, for the operation of the virtual shooting gallery, you will need: a laptop or a personal computer to install software on it; projector, as well as a projection screen or projection area. An important element is a camera for reading the light spots created by electronic weapons at the point of impact. This camera is included in more advanced iMarksman simulator kits.

Opposite the projection screen, a projector and a high-precision camera are installed. At the moment of firing from a laser weapon, a light spot is projected at the point of impact, the exact data about which the camera transmits to the control program, which in turn gives the result in the form of a hit on a target or defeat of a virtual enemy.

iMarksman also has a video mode that allows you to convert your own video into a training script.
