Virtalis delivers innovative, human-centred training solutions to the military, drawing on integrated virtual environments and advanced Virtual Reality technologies. Our multi-disciplinary development and consultancy team includes specialists in 3D modelling and design, electromechanics, software engineering and human factors.
Virtalis’ defence training systems have been proven to improve the quality of training whilst generating high financial returns and rapid payback. Our Helicopter Crew Reality training environment for helicopter crews is widely seen internationally as the ultimate helicopter crew training system, whilst our gunnery and maintenance trainers deliver tremendous value for money.
"In the year prior to the inception of the 20 and 30 mm VR trainers, the Royal Navy spent £1.5 million on live rounds. Naturally, as there is almost no cost associated with the use of Virtalis’ trainers, we were able to fire approximately 30 times more rounds in the first year of operation."

"I would estimate that for the individual modules within our course, which is the longest in the
RAF, we have gone from a 20% failure rate to a 5% failure rate since our students began using
the Virtalis system. We are working closely with Virtalis to add even greater realism and more
function. For example, only 25% of those who apply make it onto our course. We believe that a
VR-based assessment test could prove to be a first-rate way of sifting out those least suited to the
