Virtual Sniper Trainer

The Virtual Sniper Trainer helps to develop critical sniper skills and provide sustainment training in the absence of sniper range facilities, with full ballistic and graphic fidelity.

The Virtual Sniper Trainer supports any caliber, and uses the officer's own weapon for live fire training. The system incorporates the most advanced ballistics engine to date. It provides optional internal ballistic calculations for ammunition temperature and has the additional capability of providing theater-specific ballistics data for operational use.

All actions normally required to engage targets, such as range estimation, scope adjustments, wind and atmospheric conditions are required to achieve target hits in simulation. Instant target reaction provides real-time feedback and end-of-situation AAR capability.

A library of current ammunition types are included in the program with a baseline average velocity. For 100% accuracy, bullet BC and recorded muzzle velocity can be entered by the user for any individual weapon and ammunition lot number.

Individual weapon trajectory data can also be entered from the user's logbook from a known distance range. Users can simulate any natural environment including temperature, altitude, and slope, to match the area of operations.

The Virtual Sniper Trainer does ballistic calculations and adjustments for:

  • Range
  • Wind
  • Temperature
  • Barometric pressure.

With the Virtual Sniper Trainer, the officer uses his own unmodified weapon and scope. A minimum 25-metre shooting distance is required depending on the focal length of the scope—certain scopes may not be able to focus at such near distances. The Virtual Sniper Trainer can be installed into one of our QuickRange modular ranges or an existing indoor shooting range.
