YDreams Global, the creative and technical supplier for brands such as Cisco, Qualcomm, Intel as well as the Government of Rio de Janeiro, has recently announced that it has signed a contract to use its Virtual Reality (VR) technology in the United States.

The company helps create digital experience combining both Augmented and Virtual Reality technologies, design, and intelligence.

The first project sold in the United States will be released in the second week of December.

According to the company’s press release, YDreams Global plans to create a virtual reality platform to be used by the military and other government agencies such as police departments, fire departments and emergency medical services that could use VR as a training experience. By using this technology for training, for example, the military, police and fire services would be able to experience accurate real-life situations that would be impossible to replicate in physical world exercises.

The company will create a lifelike experience and improve military technique, according to finance.yahoo. Marcos Alves, Director of YDreams Global products division said: “VR is emerging as a technology that can improve the way we learn and experience stressful situations in a safer environment”.

By using VR simulations, it is possible to optimize training budget while simultaneously increasing the number of scenarios. “YDreams is setting out to offer VR training techniques to thousands of military, police, and other agencies in this space. By bringing VR technology into their training routine, a new era of military training may be possible, increasing safety for both sides: the police force and the general population. The defense sector has a massive market and we feel that YDreams has a distinct advantage to develop VR techniques for this sector,” declared the CEO of the Company, Daniel Japiassu.

“Our goal for 2017 is to accelerate our virtual reality growth strategy in North America, focusing on our fortune 500 relationships in place already,” he added

Very few companies in the world provide this technology and YDreams Global’s goal is to expand through commercial partners in North America, South America. and Europe, to offer this platform to military and civilian defense forces.

YDreams Global anticipates that the working version will be available in the second quarter of 2017, a project which involves partnerships with several hardware companies.
