WHAT DOES CONFLICT SMELL LIKE?
An effective combat training program imitates real-life conditions as closely as possible. A soldier who in real life situations might encounter heavy smoke that makes it harder to see, loud noises that makes it difficult to communicate, and strong smells that confuse his senses – will have a reduced performance level unless he has been trained in these environments. For this reason we present a variety of sensory stimulations on soldiers in the training environment, imitating the real operating environment’s characteristics as closely as possible.
This type of combat training (also called 4D training or ultra realistic training) engages all the senses and helps create memory tags that will be engaged when the soldier encounters similar situations. From foreign village and market scents to body perspiration or blood trauma our full line of odors and malodors can take immersive training to a completely new level.
