Immersive training environments to prepare those who serve

FLAIM develops world leading multi-sensory immersive learning solutions for training in hazardous and emergency situations

  • Purpose

    To prepare those who serve for their everyday challenges so that they stay safe while saving and defending others

  • How we do it

    Intersecting technology and science to create real world immersive learning solutions, in safe virtual environments, for training in hazardous and emergency situations.

FLAIM Trainer™ and FLAIM Extinguisher™ solutions

FLAIM Trainer

FLAIM Trainer is the world’s first immersive technology enabled firefighter training solution. FLAIM Trainer combines high fidelity virtual hazardous fire environments, audio and industry standard equipment to deliver a fully immersive, multi-sensory, physical experience that enables firefighters to train more, learn more and be better prepared for the risks they face when delivering their service to the community.

FLAIM Extinguisher

FLAIM Extinguisher is the world’s leading immersive learning solution for the fire and safety industry. FLAIM Extinguisher incorporates a broad, expanding, range of virtual fire scenarios in industrial, commercial, medical, transport, lab and warehouse environments that enable initial responders, and the general public, to learn OH&S correct procedures and develop safe and effective extinguisher management techniques.

Backed by 10 years of hardware and software research at the Institute for Intelligent Systems Research and Innovation research institute at Deakin University.

The fire models created by FLAIM use real physics principles. They run at impressive virtual reality frame rates that eliminate motion sickness that can be experienced when VR is done poorly.

FLAIM’s team models not just the visual environment but also the burning and reaction of materials to fire - meaning that the way the fire progresses in our environments and mimics how it would move and respond to fire suppressants in the real world.

The fire behaviour in our immersive environments applies the dynamics of fire, water, smoke, heat and foam. We've developed these environments based on fire research shared by our global partners so that what a trainee experiences in our immersive training environment is what they would face in the same scenario in real life.

Algorithms that replicate fire and reaction

Over a decade of experience modelling

The FLAIM Development team leverages over 10 years of experience modelling real-time fire behaviour in 3D immersive environments. The fire models created by FLAIM use real physics principles. They run at impressive virtual reality frame rates that eliminate motion sickness that can be experienced when VR is done poorly.
