The Troy System Outdoor Shooting Range Overhead Roof Structure was chosen for the Pomona (CA) Police Department to provide gunfire audibility relief to adjacent neighbors. It was a cost-effective alternative to building a complete indoor range or moving the location of the facility. Additionally, Troy System shooting stalls were constructed to reduce rifle gunfire audibility without compromising training tactics. This met the required noise reduction for 200 yards from the source, reducing it by at least 10 dB or half the noise level. Troy Acoustics, via the proven Troy System, offers acoustic solutions for indoor and outdoor shooting ranges nationwide.

VirTra is best known for its V-300 ultra-immersive training simulator, which allows officers to train in a 300-degree environment with potential threats coming from almost all directions. The training environment can be made even more realistic with the addition of an optional 2,000-watt audio system. With five separate screens, the V-300 is large enough to accommodate 15 independent firing lanes for marksmanship training. Optional Threat-Fire is a wireless electronic impulse device normally worn around the student's mid-section that provides a momentary shock at the instructor's discretion to increase realism.
