Hostage Situation Training

Training of judgment skills and the lawful use of force by a member of the armed forces in situations involving the holding of persons as hostages, with the possibility of both de-escalating the situation and using firearms
One of the most complex and difficult situations military officers have to deal with are crisis
negotiations. In such situations, the stakes are very high, where even minor miscalculations can lead to devastating effects.

What we know about hostage situation

Hostage situations can take many forms, depending on a variety of factors. One of the most impactful factors is the type of hostage taken. Professional criminals are usually the easiest to deal with since they have a plan and some demands that the negotiators use to build some sort of rapport with them. Psychopaths and unplanned hostage situations are usually a bit harder to deal with, since they don't have any clear demands, and can be more unpredictable. Hostage situations involving terrorists are the most challenging to deal with since the terrorists are usually very devoted to their causes because of their ideologies. Add several other complications of a realistic hostage situation to the mix, and you have one of the most challenging crises military officials have to deal with.

So, a hostage situation requires the coordination of trained negotiations, psychologists, military special forces to be dealt with successfully. Negotiators need to know what to say to keep the hostage-takers engaged, and how to talk them down. Military officers need to isolate the situation and special forces need to come up with plans to intercept the hostage-takers without putting lives at risk. Above all, the officers in charge of the situation must make difficult decisions, according to the evolving situation, and prevent any disasters.

Virtual Training Solutions

Hostage situations are extremely complex, and there are literally no practical training exercises that can prepare all these people to effectively and efficiently counter such situations. Of course, military forces have certain training programs, which teach their officers about de-escalation and other important skills that may be required to deal with a hostage situation, and negotiators and tactical units have their specific training as well. However, nothing can replace the value of actionable experience.

This is where virtual training simulators can be very helpful. Many people have the misconception that such virtual shooting simulators can only be used to train marksmanship, however, in reality, they are very versatile, and have thousands of scenarios and simulations that can be used to provide army officers with actionable experience in dealing with a wide variety of crisis situations.

Similarly, hostage situation training exercises allow military forces entities to train together, in a safe, yet very realistic environment. These training simulators work using branching decision trees and actually respond to the actions of army officers so that they can understand the consequences of their actions. Moreover, these simulations allow experienced hostage negotiators and trained psychologists to review the performance of officers and negotiators involved and help them improve their crisis intervention skills.

Our programs are compatible with the vast majority of interactive shooting ranges on the market, for example iMarksman, Laser Ammo, Laser Shot, G-Sight, etc. If you need help setting up compatibility with third-party software from another manufacturer, we will help you or refund.
Can I buy equipment (hardware) for a virtual shooting range on this website?
We do not sell laser weapons, cameras, and other equipment necessary for a virtual shooting range. At https://shooting-soft.com/ you can buy software for any kind of virtual shooting ranges. Our software is compatible with programs from any other manufacturers, for example iMarksman, Laser Ammo, Laser Shot, G-Sight, etc.
What conditions need to be created in order for the virtual shooting range to work as efficiently as possible?
  1. Absence of direct sunlight, as well as reflections from bright (brighter than the projection) light sources (for example, a mirror reflecting lamp light into the camera lens).
  2. The surface on which the projection is placed should not be black / dark (black / dark surfaces absorb the laser beam from the weapon mockup and it becomes not bright enough for correct recognition), it should not be glossy, as the projection itself is reflected from such a surface not evenly.
  3. Programs work correctly under normal room lighting (but without bright direct sunlight and other glare that is brighter than the projection). Also, do not use completely darkened rooms.
  4. The best distance to install the camera is 3-6 meters from the projection. Do not position the camera too far from the work surface.
  5. Observe the projection proportions by setting the "AUTO" mode in the projector aspect ratio settings - the projector will automatically select the scale according to the resolution of the connected device (computer).
Does it have VR / 3D support?
Yes, software are made with VR / 3D surround image support. It is important that the hardware (computer / projector / glasses) are compatible with each other and it could create a 3D image. For example, all equipment runs on NVIDIA 3D VISION
Minimum and optimal computer system requirements
Minimum requirements:
Processor: at least 1.9 GHz Number of cores: at least 4
RAM: at least DDR3
RAM: at least 4 Gb

Optimal requirements:
Processor: at least 2.3 GHz Number of cores: at least 4
RAM: at least DDR3
RAM: at least 8 Gb
Operating system Windows 8/8.1/10/11
Video card: discrete at least 4 Gb
What is the quality of the image and screen resolution?
Image quality and resolution depend only on the equipment on which the content will be played. The software supports all available screen resolutions, including 5K (5120 × 2880) / 4K (3840 × 2160) / FULL HD (1920 × 1080).

Games can be run both on a computer with a built-in video card and a projector with a resolution of 800x600, and on a computer with discrete video and a 5K / 4K / Full HD projector - accordingly, in the second case, the picture will be significantly better than in the first.
