Defense Technology Introduces the Low Roll Training Simulator

October 29, 2013

For Immediate Release

Defense Technology Introduces the Low Roll Training Simulator
New training system for safe deployment of Defense Technology Distraction Device units

ONTARIO, California – The Defense Technology® brand announced today the release of the new Low Roll™ Training Simulator – a training tool with a pneumatic fuze, designed to replicate their live Low Roll Distraction Device® unit. Developed by Airsoft Innovations for the Defense Technology brand, this training simulator, featuring a patent-pending design, provides agencies a safe way to introduce operators to the use of the Low Roll Distraction Device models during simulation exercises. The all-inclusive Low Roll Training Simulator kit gives agencies the ability to cost-effectively integrate deployment skills into their force-on-force training programs.

“What separates this simulator from pyrotechnic devices is that it may be deployed during realistic force-on-force training in ‘active areas’ such as schools, offices or government buildings where damage to the location is not permitted,” said John Kapeles, Category Director, Defense Technology. “Using these simulators during ‘role-play’ training provides a safe way to develop tactical skills in a cost-effective manner.”

The reloadable Low Roll Training Simulator uses CO2 as its power source, and the device will emit approximately 130 dBA of sound output at five feet, while not producing any flame, spark, light, heat or marring to the deployment environment.

This offering is available individually or in a complete Starter Kit to meet agency needs. The Starter Kit, Model #8950AS, includes two reloadable Low Roll bodies, a refill station which contains an empty CO2 tank and a regulator/fill tip already assembled, end caps, pull rings and replacement fuze handles. The CO2 tank is shipped empty to comply with DOT shipping regulations and may be filled at any paintball store. Once filled, the tank will refill approximately 200 Low Roll Simulator bodies. The training simulator can be prepared and reloaded in less than one minute, supporting a demanding training schedule.

Available now for law enforcement agencies only, pricing is noted below:

Model Description                                                                       MSRP
8950AS Low Roll Training Simulator Starter Kit                             $ 495.00
