The Advanced Firearms Training System Vistula at the Military University of Technology

The mul­ti­me­dia shoot­ing range at the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy is very pop­u­lar among stu­dents. Equipped with vibra­tion vests, a shoot­ing pro­gram and a mixed real­i­ty mod­ule, it is used to con­duct prac­ti­cal exer­cis­es in the fields of study of the Fac­ul­ty of Secu­ri­ty, Logis­tics and Man­age­ment.

The Vis­tu­la laser train­ing sys­tem is a Pol­ish, real­is­tic laser sim­u­la­tor that allows to orga­nize shoot­ing train­ing in a safe and eco­nom­i­cal way. The Advanced Firearms Train­ing Sys­tem Vis­tu­la at Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy is an unique ver­sion of shoot­ing train­ing sys­tem using a repli­cas of firearms and the most mod­ern com­bi­na­tion of com­put­er tech­nol­o­gy and laser sys­tems.

The mod­ule allows to train in var­i­ous weath­er con­di­tions, at dif­fer­ent times of the day and with the use of all shoot­ing posi­tions: stand­ing, kneel­ing and lying down.

The sys­tem is also used as part of the class­es inau­gu­rat­ing the Legia Aka­demic­ka pro­gram, var­i­ous types of open class­es, e.g. for sec­ondary schools coop­er­at­ing with the MUT, or dur­ing the open day of the Mil­i­tary Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy.

The sys­tem repro­duces the authen­tic nat­ur­al and sit­u­a­tion­al con­di­tions. The sound sys­tem emits bat­tle­field sounds, e.g. the roar of shots or the sound of falling shells.

Sce­nar­ios for the orga­ni­za­tion of class­es can there­fore take the form of var­i­ous shoot­ing com­pe­ti­tions, thus using team­work and intro­duc­ing ele­ments of com­pe­ti­tion.
