STOPS pyrotechnicians and medical special effects artists create Hyper-Realistic® battlefield effects and combat wound effects - including gunshots, shrapnel wounds, eviscerations, sucking chest wounds, burns, CBRNE, and traumatic amputations (with amputee actors).
The Mobile Training Team (MTT) logistics train can include modular structures, props, sets, weapons, wardrobe, communications equipment, and vehicles.
Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and instructors are available in the areas such as Close Quarter Combat, Tactical Combat Casualty Care, Improvised Explosive Device (IED) awareness, foreign weapons familiarization, and other subjects. Camera crews provide video recording and editing for after action review.
