Innovation for a Rapidly Changing World

Since 2002, Strategic Operations, Inc. (STOPS) has provided innovative solutions to overcome the challenges of training military personnel, civilian first responders and surgical teams.

Strategic Operations is dedicated and focused on maximizing training value by outfitting medical providers with essential training devices to accomplish lifesaving goals. By designing medical simulation and training devices that are user-repairable, usage and cost effectiveness are maximized while minimizing out of service time for proprietary manufacturer repairs and costly expendable replacement supplies.

STOPS also provides Hyper-Realistic® training environments resembling actual scene conditions offering participants “Stress Inoculation”. With active threat and mass casualty incidents (MCI) tragically increasing in frequency and complexity throughout the United States, local law enforcement (LE) and medical emergency response teams have struggled to manage actual events. A significant contributor to this failure is the way in which first responders train for these incidents.

Strategic Operations draws upon the experience developed over an eighteen year span of training military, law enforcement and first responders to provide a fully immersive training environment as well as employing Hollywood tested techniques used during movie and television production.


Medical Simulation

Our MedSim division is dedicated and focused on maximizing training value by outfitting medical providers with essential training devices to accomplish lifesaving goals. By designing medical simulation and training devices that are user-repairable, usage and cost effectiveness are maximized while minimizing out of service time for proprietary manufacturer repairs and costly expendable replacement supplies.

Hyper-Realistic® Training

Strategic Operations Inc. (STOPS), defines Hyper-Realistic ® as “such a high degree of fidelity in the replication of conditions in a training environment that participants so willingly suspend disbelief that they become totally immersed and eventually stress inoculated".

Construction & Atmospherics

The legacy core of STOPS focuses on designing, fabricating and constructing environments and training aids that are Hyper-Realistic ® – and tactically challenging – by using Hollywood set construction techniques, combined with years of military training experience.
