Revolutionizing First Responder Training: Exploring the Public Safety Immersive Test Center

Through the collaborative efforts of the FirstNet Authority and the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Division, the Public Safety Immersive Test Center was created. The 1,100 square-foot facility in Boulder, Colorado, is equipped with advanced technology like augmented and virtual reality headsets, motion-capture systems, and high-speed tracking cameras, which allow first responders to experience a variety of scenarios in an immersive and tactile environment. The Public Safety Immersive Test Center also serves as a space for research and development, allowing industry experts to learn more about the technology that supports the life-saving mission of public safety.
