YDREAMS GLOBAL TO USE VIRTUAL REALITY IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF SIMULATIONS FOR MILITARY TRAINING
YDreams Global Interactive Technologies Inc. will use its extensive knowledge of virtual reality (VR), gaming and immersive experiences to develop training solutions for military use.
The main goal is to create a complete platform to be used by the military and other government agencies such as police departments, fire departments and emergency medical services that could use VR as a training experience. By using this technology for training, for example, the military, police and fire services would be able to experience accurate real-life situations that would be impossible to replicate in physical world exercises.

Very few companies in the world provide this technology and YDreams Global's goal is to expand through commercial partners in North America, South America and Europe, to offer this platform to military and civilian defence forces. Marcos Alves, director of YDreams Global products division, explains that YDreams Global will create a life-like experience and improve military techniques. "VR is emerging as a technology that can improve the way we learn and experience stressful situations in a safer environment," explained Mr. Alves.

By using VR simulations, it is possible to optimize training budget and while simultaneously increasing the number of scenarios. "YDreams is setting out to offer VR training techniques to thousands of military, police and other agencies in this space. By bringing VR technology into their training routine, a new era of military training may be possible, increasing safety for both sides: the police force and the general population. We are very excited about this new development and the impact it may have on YDreams' growth. The defence sector has a massive market and we feel that YDreams has a distinct advantage to develop VR techniques for this sector," declared the chief executive officer of the company, Daniel Japiassu. YDreams Global anticipates that the working version will be available in the second quarter of 2017. This project involves partnerships with several hardware companies.

Flex9Armor for Swat

Mission Ready makes initial shipment of Flex9Armor

2016-11-23 08:40 ET - News Release

Mr. Rod Reum reports
MISSION READY'S PROTECT THE FORCE ANNOUNCES INITIAL SHIPMENT OF FLEX9ARMOR
Mission Ready Services Inc. has received an initial order and made an initial shipment of its Flex9Armor tactical police shirt to a U.S. County Sheriff Department SWAT unit. Developed and fulfilled through the company's wholly owned subsidiary, Protect The Force Inc. (PTF), additional Flex9Armor shipments are currently being prepared for a foreign military order while evaluations are under way by a number of European NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) nations. 


Flex9Armor -- jointly developed in co-operation with the U.S. military -- comprises a family of protective garments that provide stringent levels of ballistic protection while maintaining exceptionally lightweight and flexible characteristics. Traditional armour lacks coverage of the arms, chest and neck region of the body, and current additional protection for these areas adds weight and reduces mobility. Flex9Armor incorporates a network of NIJ Level II and IIIA body armour panels into a breathable anti-microbial material that is 30 per cent lighter than conventional armour. Integrating all of these features into one combined garment makes Flex9Armor a superior option for first responders that is available in standard and fire-retardant configurations. Additionally, PTF this week released a variant of the Flex9Armor, the Flex9Spike, designed for use by federal, state and local correctional facilities.

In a news release dated Oct. 27, 2016, Mission Ready announced that PTF had won an award through the U.S. Department of Defence's defence to response (D2R) technology program for the provision of $110,000 (U.S.) in services from Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service's product development centre (TEEX PDC) to commercialize PTF's Flex9Armor to enhance public safety and homeland security. Protect The Force is currently working with over 70 U.S. federal, state and local law enforcement agencies at various stages of the evaluation and purchasing process. In anticipation of a significant demand for the Flex9Armor, PTF has streamlined its processes through a state-of-the-art on-line order-fulfilment platform and recently launched a manufacturing division based in Jacksboro, Tenn., in order to efficiently and effectively meet client requests.
