Challenges of Deadly Conflict Training

Replicating Realistic Live-Fire Deadly Encounter 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 trainee 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 trainees simultaneously.


How realistic are Troysgate Theater Systems?

Troysgate Theater Systems:

• Have a unique design that immediately draws the trainee into a realistic, live, real-time training scenarios.
• Place the trainee 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 trainee's physiological and psychological effects 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 US military 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 CONEX Container Training Systems

Modular Military-Grade Training 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 CONEX 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 of the training systems provide mobility/portability to accommodate the implementation of training where it is needed. The training site does not require extensive site preparation - delivery and installation can be accomplished quickly using a commercial forklift or crane. 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.

Troysgate Mobile Training Systems

Mobile/Portable Training Solutions


Troysgate's approach in the design of Troysgate Theater Systems include mobile/portable training systems. We offer cam-lock panel systems and ultra lite aluminum systems manufactured from strong, light weight materials. Both of these mobile/portable training systems can be customized which offer flexibility in the design and application possibilities while providing a standardized and consistent manufacturing process that meets Troysgate's product design, safety and quality standards. The mobile/portable design of the cam-lock panel and ultra lite aluminum training systems accommodate rapid deployment and implementation of training where it is needed and can be disassembled and stored when it is not being used. The training site does not require extensive site preparation - set up and breakdown can be accomplished quickly with 2-3 personnel. Both of these training systems are well suited for established indoor/outdoor ranges where ballistic containment already exists. Their portability offers the implementation of training inside a ballistic containment shoot house and outside on an open range where dirt berms provide containment.
