Axon Expands VR Public Safety Training Team With Foundry 45 Acquisition

Axon (Nasdaq: AXON) has acquired virtual reality studio Foundry 45 in a push to transform public safety training with the use of immersive technology.

The acquired business will operate as part of Axon’s VR team that makes scenario-based simulator training tools designed to prepare law enforcement personnel for real-world situations, the company said Wednesday.

Foundry 45 launched in 2015 to offer VR and augmented reality-based corporate training services intended to help enterprise customers boost productivity and upskill their workforce.
