Award Provides Additional Funded Evaluation and Deployment for Company’s Immersive Simulation Training for Radiation/Nuclear Detection
SAN DIEGO, Calif., September 21, 2012 – Spectral Labs Incorporated today announced that it signed a Phase III contract with the Department of Homeland Security’s Domestic Nuclear Detection Office (DHS/DNDO) to support the Test and Evaluation of the Realistic Adaptive Interactive Learning System (RAILS). The award is made under the small business innovative research (SBIR) program funded by the U.S. Government to promote the development of new technology. This is a continuation of work from Spectral Labs’ SBIR Phase I and Phase II contracts.
Immersive simulation training with RAILS is applicable currency and refresher practice for those who participated in initial hands-on training with radiation/nuclear detection devices. A variety of agencies also find the realistic virtual training and operational practice valuable to introduce the concepts and equipment to new hires. Providing a set of 3D virtual environments with realistic radiation physics in which radiation detection skills may be practiced, RAILS accurately models the performance of a wide range of radiation/nuclear detection equipment, and enables instructors and administrators to track performance relative to individual training objectives.
Mr. James Winso, President of Spectral Labs, stated, “We are pleased to receive this contract award from DHS/DNDO and are excited to offer RAILS as an immersive simulation tool to provide responders with useful, practical training.” The training is an approved course in the FEMA State/Federal Sponsored Course Catalog Course # DHS-018-PREV (https://www.firstrespondertraining.gov/catalog.do?a=state_federal) and available for grant funding.
