Repeat order for high demand training environment: July 2017
IWC® is pleased to report that it has received a follow up order from a specialist city Police Department in Switzerland, to expand their portable training environment. The Swiss Police have been using their IWC equipment for less than one year and now need to expand it; such is the demand for its use.
With increased numbers of police service personnel being maintained at a higher state of readiness than ever before due to the global threat of terrorism, the IWC portable training environment is an invaluable tool. Most importantly, it enables a force to maintain a constant level of training and this means to ensure trainees can be reactive to every emerging situation.
“We are very happy with this. It is a great system”
Chief Shooting Instructor – Swiss City Police Force
The new purchase has additional “Rapid Screens” which are opaque sections designed to be instantly applied to either IWC Window or Door sections effectively rendering them solid walls. This stops line of sight or trainee access through the environment. Rapid screens can be deployed or removed in seconds allowing scenarios and evolutions to be altered immediately, forcing trainees to think on their feet. IWC the only portable firearms training system endorsed by General Dynamics Simunition® the world’s leading supplier of training ammunition.
IWC presents a novel solution to urban environment training, notably by taking such training to the trainees. Hitherto trainees have typically travelled to and stayed near purpose-built but inflexible installations at significant cost. The IWC Portable Urban Training System is the only urban training structure which can be transported, rapidly deployed, trained within, rapidly re-configured and compacted for storage as well as being able to withstand all of the rigours of armed police training.
IWC Portable Urban Training System is certified for use with General Dynamics Simunition FX® marking rounds both 9mm and 5.56mm therefore ideal for Police Armed Response training with service issue Glock pistols, MP5 SMG and G36 carbine rifle.
The IWC Portable Urban Training System replicates real world scenarios and allows the safest practice of movement skills in the built environment including the use of specialist equipment such as ladders. The applications are as diverse as the challenges of modern policing. The layout and configuration can be rapidly adapted to suit training objectives so that scenarios need never be repeated and training remains fresh, conditioning the response.
IWC Portable Urban Training System is also in service worldwide with:
- Austrian Police
- Federal German Police
- Australian Infantry
- Austrian Land Army
