TEEX-Tested Reports

The TEEX Testing & Innovation Center (TT&IC) conducts performance assessments in operational environments by experienced professionals using representative facilities and environments the product is expected to perform in. Operators perform functions that are expected in operational service and assess the products and solutions using the manufacturer’s guidelines and instructions to assess performance. TEEX tests follow a process including standards reviews, metrics development, expert panel reviews, test plan and scenario development, and quantitative and qualitative measurements and surveys. These reports are a summation of the functionality, reliability, and performance results.

FLAIM is a Virtual Reality Fire Training System that consists of 24 environments, 75 scenarios and injects in operationally realistic conditions in municipal, industrial, wildland, aviation, maritime, and transportation categories.

It contains a physical nozzle and hose reel that are used to simulate the heft and responses of operational fire hoses, an air purifying respirator mask used to simulate the feel of an SCBA mask, a vest with an embedded heat element used to simulate heat in proximity to fire, and a HTC VIVE hand controller used within virtual environments to simulate a thermal imaging camera.

 

The Squishy Robotics System is comprised of two components: The 4-GasPLUS sensor payload and the Stationary Robot. The 4-GasPLUS sensor payload is a battery-operated sensor array, radio/antenna, and multiple small cameras encased in a flexible shell which is suspended in the Stationary Robot. The Stationary Robot is a flexible skeleton frame which provides impact protection to the sensor shell when deployed by an uncrewed aerial system (UAS), thrown by hand, or other means. 

This TEEX-Tested assessment was limited to an evaluation of the capability and reliability of the communications function (i.e., radio communications and video streaming) in operational environments. Scenarios were designed to focus on hazardous material missions requiring protective distances between the exclusion and cold zones and included a petroleum/chemical process unit, petroleum/chemical tank farm, a freight train derailment involving a DOT111 tank car, and a subterranean tunnel system. The Squishy Robotics System was deployed by hand or by UAS based on best practices determined by current emergency response personnel.

 

InVeris’ SURVIVR is a Virtual Reality (VR) training system that combines virtual visual and sound environments with hands-on gear to provide an immersive experience. Although marketed as a de-escalation trainer, the scenarios, virtual environments, and instructor/operator injects allow for training beyond de-escalation.

InVeris’ SURVIVR system allows instructors to create customizable scenarios to stimulate many of the situations law enforcement professionals encounter, from routine traffic stops to complex active shooter incidents. The system tracks and catalogs detailed data instructors can analyze to assess the trainee’s performance. This includes trainees’ visual fields, distances from suspects, lethal weapon usage, and many other outputs.
