Goals & Requirements

U.S. Military and Federal Government

A clear objective, goal and mission of the U.S. military and federal government calls for the protection of our interests and assets from foreign or domestic threats. Training plays a critical and important role in the preparedness and readiness of our armed forces and federal agents and their ability to engage and respond effectively to these threats. Troysgate offers the U.S. military and federal government a new unique training approach that provides a wide range of training applications and solutions that address existing and future training requirements. We firmly believe that our training solutions address a hidden or undiscovered training requirement that has been missed or overlooked, or a known training requirement that until now has been without a known or viable solution.

Deployment Ready... COMBAT READY?

Troysgate training solutions are very simpllistic and straightforward; however, what may appear or seem obvious, is not. Troysgate Theater Systems must be seen and experienced, first hand, by the decision makers in order to be fully recognized and validated as a necessary training solution with unlimited possibilities and a tremendous value that no other training system is capable of offering, providing and acheiving. For the U.S. military and federal government, existing combat related or deadly conflict training programs without the consideration of the Troysgate Theater Systems and training methodology will be truly missing one of the most crucial and important components in the implementation of these types of training programs.

All we ask is to give us an opportunity to...

• Talk to us about your training objectives, goals and requirements, and
• Invite you to take a serious look at the Troysgate Theater Systems and what we have to offer

After seeing what Troysgate has to offer, we are confident that our training systems and training methodogy will far exceed the training expectations and requirements of the U.S. military and federal government. We have been diligently working with the U.S. military and federal government agencies at the highest levels to help to establish new training requirements, so that Troysgate training solutions can be made available where they are needed.

Challenges of Combat Training

Replicating Realistic Live-Fire Combat Situations

The training challenges for being prepared and ready for combat deployment are endless and forever changing. Any training program or training system is only as effective as the capability of the training environment and the intended goals and objectives. When it comes to training, what has elluded and limited any training solution has been the inability to replicate realistic deadly conflict.

"There are numerous training systems and applications that do a very good job at what they have been designed to accomplish, but there is absolutely nothing that is available today - right now - that comes close to what the Troysgate Theater Systems are capable of accomplishing."

What are the advantages of Troysgate Theater Systems?

Troysgate Theater Systems:

• Provide a complete training solution environment.
• Are modular, mobile and portable.
• Can be configured to meet and accommodate a wide-range of training applications and solutions.
• Offer unlimited realistic training scenarios and situations with shoot / no shoot outcomes.
• Provide complete ballistic containment (AR-500 steel and ballistic rubber) that does not require additional ballistic measures.
• Can be transported and implemented anywhere and in any environment.
• Enable rapid deployment capability with low/minimal maintenance and support.
• Condition the soldier/agent for deadly conflict with absolute maximum effectiveness and efficiency.
• Show early field results of threat elimination without secondary collateral damages and unintended consequences.
• Appear to offer some level of conditioning against PTSD and related issues related to combat/deadly encounter experiences.
• Standard configurations are designed to accommodate up to 4 soldiers/agents simultaneously.

How realistic are Troysgate Theater Systems?

Troysgate Theater Systems:

• Have a unique design that immediately draws the soldier/agent into a real-time, live, unavoidable training scenario.
• Place the soldier/agent in very close quarters (as close as 3 feet) of an actual human role player.
• Create the realistic and convincing illusion of face-to-face deadly engagements at close quarters.
• Permit the use of unmodified duty weapons and ammunition (handgun and rifle up to .50 cal)
• Replicate the psycological and physiological effects on the individual he/she would experience in actual combat/deadly conflict.
• Rely on the dynamic and unpredictable actions and reponses of the role player which cannot be second guessed or "gamed."

Trainability Requirements

Meeting Program and Transitional Requirements

Troysgate Theater Systems are the only training solution on the market that replicates realistic and convincing combat situations and scenarios. Our training systems build a strong case as alternatives and intermediate transtions to training requirements and solutions expected by 2025.

Troysgate Theater Systems appear to be "on-target" regarding several of the U.S. Army future forces focus areas. Our training systems also currently address, meet and support several trainability requirements within the:

• Huachuca Training and Support Contract (HTASC)
• Enterprise Training Service Contract (ETSC)
• Life Cycle Product-line Management (LCPM)

Troysgate Theater Containerized Systems

Modular / Military-Grade Modular/Portable Solutions

Troysgate's approach in the design of Troysgate Theater Systems is unique and non-conventional, having evolved over several years to maximize the training experience and its effectiveness, and incorporate specialized tactical applications of the system that have been driven by U.S. military and federal government specifications and requirements. Using high quality 20 and 40 foot commercial containers, Troysgate is able to customized and provide a live-fire tactical environment that provides ballistic containment using AR-500 steel and high grade ballistic rubber. The use of containers allows flexibility in the design and application possibilities while providing a standardized and consistent manufacturing process that meets and achieves Troysgate's product design, safety and quality standards. The modular design and the mobility and portability of these training systems do not require extensive site preparation. The delivery and installation can be accomplished quickly using a commercial forklift or crane, and training can be implemented almost immediately. As client customer specifications, requirements and applications change, additional containers can be easily integrated into an existing Troysgate Theater Systems environment.

Troysgate Instrumentation Systems

Integrated After Action Review & Hit Detection System with Special Effects Capabilities

Troysgate instrumentation systems capabilities include specialized After Action Review (AAR) and Hit Detection (HDT) designed and developed for Troysgate and equipment components to provide realistic simulated battlefield effects to enhance the training experience.

After Action Review (AAR)

The AAR system includes a PC workstation with dual PC monitors and HD LED 4k large screen TV monitor. The system provides multiple camera audio/video collection, recording and playback (up to 30 fps) in real-time monitoring and recorded playback in normal and slow motion speed. Ultra-low light sensitive cameras allow for HD recording and playback of video in color under normal light conditions and in black/white under the darkness of night operations. Recorded audio/video segments can be exported as a run time executable file for playback on other computer devices.

Hit Detection (HDT)

The HDT system provides the audio/video collection, recording and playback of fired shot location incorporating wireless hit detection and participant tracking solutions which do not require anything be worn by participants. The system incorporates specialized software and hardware, IR cameras, and hit sensing equipment with the reflective screen that are integrated into the AAR system which utilizes all AAR system components which are controlled through the PC workstation. Recorded audio/video segments can be played back through the PC workstation, or exported as a video file for playback on other computer devices.

Special Effects

Simulated battlefield effects capabilities which include sound generator, smoke/fog, scent/smell, weapons/IED and wave cannon are integrated into the AAR system and are controlled through the PC workstation.
