Norrad offers firearms training solution that includes biometric feedback
MANCHESTER, NH Aug. 24, 2016 Blending big data with advances in mobile technology, new software platform BioSension launches this month, elevating the art of firearms and tactical training to an entirely new level.
Combining biometric technology, gaming, and augmented reality techniques, BioSension is a software/hardware solution developed to advance and improve the training of law enforcement personnel, military, and specialized tactical teams. Available as a mobile and computer-based application, BioSension is composed of several modules designed to improve the marksmanship skills of a single shooter or group of students.
“The inefficiencies of traditional training techniques can end up costing quite a bit of money and time,” said Troy Nolen, CEO and founder of the New Hampshire-based company Norrad. “We saw the gap in the market and launched BioSension with the idea that we can use the advantages of modern technology to decrease the time required to train shooters, and minimize ammunition costs.”
Through the use of remote sensors, video, and biometric feedback, the application enables shooters to progress rapidly through their training program, or improve their skills. Trainers are able to give immediate feedback, on the spot, to correct deficiencies.
Fully customizable for any organization, BioSension allows instructors the ability to monitor and communicate with multiple students at different locations from one centralized point. This provides real time, on-the-spot coaching and correcting of deficiencies, instead of coaching after the fact. Trainers are able to use the biometric data on each operator, in a way never before available in a training environment.
Based in Windham, New Hampshire, BioSension is a product of Norrad, a technology company with over thirteen years' experience in building, designing, and developing mobile enterprise solutions that serve a variety of industries, solving real world problems. BioSension is the latest development applying biometrics technology geared toward the law enforcement, military, and private security sectors.
