Operator XR provides Military and Law Enforcement agencies around the world with a unique, integrated Mission Planning & Rehearsal System, which is portable, secure, and highly immersive.

 

Expanding U.S. Presence and Market Focus

In late November 2023, Operator XR bolstered its U.S. operations by expanding the sales team. This strategic move was designed to intensify direct sales activities within the Law Enforcement sector, while we continue to develop the Military segment globally. The results of this focus has seen rapid sales growth in the month of May.

 

May 2024: Record-Breaking Achievements

May has been an outstanding month for Operator XR, demonstrating substantial growth across multiple metrics, including year to date total contract value more than doubling, resulting in an Annual Recurring Revenue increase of 107% for the month to $1.26m.

    • Sales Achievement: Operator XR secured $1.93 million in sales, marking a significant monthly performance.
    • Customer Acquisition: We welcomed 12 new customers and achieved our second Australian Defence Force sale, further solidifying our market presence.
    • Contract Value Surge: The total year-to-date contract value has soared by 261% this month, reaching an impressive $2.66 million.
    • Recurring Revenue Growth: Our Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) experienced a remarkable 107% increase, now standing at $1.26 million. 

Strategic Wins: Law Enforcement and Military Expansion

Second Sale to the Australian Defence Force:

On May 22, 2024, we received a Purchase Order from the Australian Defence Force for the delivery of two systems with a three-year license; further details of this sale remain confidential. This marks the second purchase of the Operator XR system by the Australian Defence Force, separate from the ongoing trial with the broader organisation.

New Law Enforcement Customers in the U.S.

In May 2024, Operator XR received orders from 11 individual Law Enforcement agencies across various states. The customers include Police Departments in Oregon, Maryland, Alaska, Texas, Florida, Ohio, Arkansas, Indiana, and a prominent training organisation based in California. These new partnerships underscore our commitment to providing advanced training and operational solutions to Law Enforcement.

 

Future Focus

Operator XR is focused on continued growth over the coming months and remains committed to delivering cutting-edge solutions that meet the evolving needs of our clients.

 

XRG CEO Wayne Jones said, “The momentum we are currently experiencing, particularly in the US,
is a further validation of the product and market fit. We have established a strong sales culture within
Operator XR, and we are starting to see the results of the Sales, Marketing and Production activities

This accomplishment marks a pivotal moment in affirming Operator XR’s viability to cater to a diverse range of law enforcement needs within the United States.

Elevating Law Enforcement Training

This partnership aims to equip deputies with the skills needed to ensure safety, service, and security, fostering a transformative change in virtual law enforcement training.

A Momentous Achievement

“Securing our first customer in the USA marks a major milestone for XRG. It highlights the product fit and sets the stage for our sustained commitment and growth in the North American markets. The significance of this first sale cannot be understated, it will amplify our presence in the market and provide a substantial springboard into a large number of agencies of all sizes.” – Wayne Jones, CEO of xReality Group Limited.

Expanding Horizons

The partnership with the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office is a significant step in Operator XR’s strategic approach to target law enforcement agencies within the 50-500 sworn officers range, encompassing roughly 3,000 agencies across the US. This approach aligns with Operator XR’s goal of widespread impact and value delivery.

As Operator XR gains ground in the US market, it signifies a promising path forward. This accomplishment underscores the company’s potential to redefine law enforcement training, contributing to safer communities through enhanced readiness.

Operator XR first sale to Australian Defence Force

Operator XR is leading the way for immersive military virtual reality training and we are proud to announce the successful sale of its OP-1 Tactical Rehearsal System to the Australian Department of Defence.

The system will be used by the Australian Army and initially provided to deployed units to maintain military skills, using Operator XR’s immersive VR simulation platform, OP-1. This system brings a new dimension to enhancing critical military skills and has been purchased as part of a concept evaluation process.

The 4 person OP-1 System allows for tactical teams to train and rehearse in Close Quarters Battle (CQB) and urban combat scenarios with unparalleled realism.

Users train on their own weapons, as the system is supplied with M4 “drop in” kits that replace the bolt and magazine of the live weapon with an untethered, pneumatic recoil system and weapon tracking sensors. This integration creates a lifelike experience that mirrors real-world weapon handling.

The OP-1 System is a compact design, with the complete system for 4 users packing into a double rifle case. There are no external computers required, with the system operating seamlessly off a high-powered tablet, which also serves as the hub for the After Action Review (AAR) system.

Additionally, OP-1 operates completely offline, allowing the virtual reality training system to be deployed securely, and in locations without internet.

Operator XR is honoured to stand beside the Australian Department of Defence in their pursuit of maintaining and advancing the capabilities of their armed forces through cutting-edge technology.

Operator XR selected for National Trial of Policing Law Enforcement System

xReality Group (XRG) is thrilled to share the news that we have been chosen as a technology and expertise supplier for a funded National trial of its Law Enforcement system. This prestigious trial aims to evaluate the effectiveness of Virtual Reality Simulation Based Training (VRSBT) in enhancing frontline safety for police officers.

Operator XR will be working closely with an undisclosed foreign National Police Force over the next six months, immersing their officers into highly personalised scenarios to assess the capabilities of our cutting-edge Virtual Reality (VR) system.

What sets Operator XR apart is its ability to provide police and law enforcement agencies with a highly portable, easy-to-use, and incredibly realistic Virtual Reality training experience.

One of the key benefits is that it doesn’t require internet connectivity, making it highly secure and easily configurable. It also allows officers to train together in the same VR environment, even in the most challenging situations. Additionally, they are able to bring their own policing equipment into the VR environment, enabling officers to conduct extremely realistic training scenarios.

Operator XR has worked tirelessly to develop the software from the ground up. Leveraging the latest innovations in Virtual Reality technology and our extensive experience in design and scaled software platforms, we have created a system that exceeds market expectations.

“The decision to award this National trial to XRG further confirms the quality and effectiveness of the technology. We are currently experiencing a high level of demand from around the world from both military and law enforcement agencies. We look forward to seeing the positive impact our technology can make on improving the safety and preparedness of those men and women on the frontline.” – Wayne Jones, CEO, xReality Group Ltd.

At xReality Group Limited, we believe that Virtual Reality Simulation Based Training is the future of law enforcement training. We are committed to playing a key role in enhancing the safety and preparedness of police officers worldwide. The national trial represents a significant step towards achieving this goal.
