The UTM System is where technology and practical application have blended together to not only redefine the training industry standard, but revolutionize it.
The true value of a product or technology lies in its practical, real world application. Our training, technology and products are fused as a whole to result in a complete system that can be incorporated into any new or existing program, making it more realistic and wholly effective – providing the tools that Law Enforcement Agencies, Military, Private Security and Professional Trainers need to be successful, regardless of the mission.
Our innovative training model, within the system, provides a roadmap on how to develop training that tests agency protocols, reverse engineers training from real events, and bridges the gap between firearms, tactics and combatives. The UTM Training System is the most state-of-the-art, technologically advanced and comprehensive training system available on the market today, made possible through UTM technology, manufactured under ISO 9000 disciplines.
The UTM NLTA’s Accuracy and Reliability cannot be matched because of its patented Dual Primer (9mm) and Primer/Power-load technology.
UTM’s Cartridge Systems are the first to isolate the large amount of operational energy needed to cycle the weapon from the small amount of energy required for propelling the UTM projectile.
The isolated primers allow for total control of the cartridge energies, providing the consistent velocities necessary for improved accuracy and controlled impact.
UTM 9mm MMR: 6.9gr at 335fps = 1.4 ft lbs.
UTM 5.56mm MMR: 6.9gr at 375fps = 2.1 ft lbs.
FX 9mm: 7gr at 360-490fps = 2.2-4.1 ft lbs.
FX 5.56mm: 3.5gr at 650fps = 3.7 ft lbs.
Paint Ball: 49gr at 300fps = 9.8 ft lbs
*Note: FX calculated at 12 ft. FX 9mm measurements vary from 2.2 – 4.1 ft lbs. at 12 ft.
**Projectile Weights, Velocities and Impact Energy figures are posted as averages. All UTM Figures are taken from the muzzle of the weapons.
Our product line contains more training ammunition varieties than anyone else, to include the Silent Blank Round (SBR), Battlefield Blank Round (BBR & LBR), Man Marking Round (MMR & RVR) and Target Bullet Round (TBR). We are the highest rated non-lethal training ammunition in-use by the U.S. Military and International Agencies.
Our technological advancements aren’t just in our NLTA, it is in all of our products. Some of our greatest breakthroughs have been in our Personal Protective Equipment. Our integrated goggle and face mask, full visor helmet, gloves, groin protectors and suits offer the latest in PPE for Force-on-Force training. Some of the innovative features are non-fogging lenses, stock/cheek-weld and sight acquisition…
Our Face Mask with integrated goggles were designed and developed in conjunction with military and law enforcement customers to be worn while using the UTM Man Marker Round (MMR) during Force-on-Force training. It was specifically created to work with Ballistic Helmets and allow for proper cheek/stock weld of shoulder fired weapons. The UTM Protective Face Mask offers face, throat and eye protection that is light wearing, breathable and fully flexible and adaptable to all conditions and environments. Did we also mention the lenses are made by Revision? But that’s not all…:
UTM has the ONLY Full Face Helmet on the market! Our helmet allows for 180° visibility, articulating full front face shield for AAR communication in the training environment without having to remove your head protection and TRUE anti-fogging with Revision© technology. Facial features and expressions are clearly seen and non-verbals can be responded to appropriately. Verbal communications are easily heard when the helmet is donned and breathing problems or claustrophobia are non-existent. We’ve field-tested our helmet in seriously extreme conditions and it held true – no fog in sight!
UTM recognizes that safety is the most important aspect when engaging in any type of weapons handling/training; therefore we have designed, developed and compiled a full line of Personal Protective Suits (PPS) to provide the necessary protection when using the UTM Training System in various scenarios. All UTM PPS has been developed and rigorously tested for use by Military and Law Enforcement Agencies during Force-on-Force training and are available with groin and chest protectors, leggings, sleeves and gloves.
Unlike other products, the UTM’s Training System allows scenario based Force-on-Force Training using issued uniforms (minimum of two full layers) without having to wear restrictive and expensive body padding. The UTM Training System only requires the user and participants to wear approved protective gloves and approved eye, face and throat safety equipment. If agency SOPs, policies or personal preference dictate the need for additional protection, our PPS provides a functional, practical and comfortable solution.
Our PPS is designed with the realities and needs of your duties and mission at its core – lightweight, breathable and functional – which means you can get to your weapon, radio and intermediate weapons – we even included pockets! With that in mind we also created our PPS so that role players, enemy combatants and officers appear as they should and according to the ‘training role’ being played out. It’s just what we do.
The Portable Training Facility (PTF) is only available from UTM, available in standard configurations of 16×24 or 24×24 (custom sizes available upon request), and provides a multi-purpose training structure that sets up and breaks down quickly. The facility packs down into 4ft duffle bags that can be stored anywhere. The PTF ensures a versatile environment with unlimited layouts, such as building/structures, cover courses, hallways, doorways, windows, tunnels and more. It can be used in tactics, firearms, combatives, Force-on-Force or live fire training, low-light and scenario-based training, among other drills.
For trainers that do not have adequate facilities or would like an enhanced multifaceted solution, the PTF provides a safe, mobile, versatile and realistic training environment that can be customized to suit the individual needs of any agency or unit in any location.
We recognize the need to continually improve existing products to avoid stagnation and complacency, whilst also fostering a pioneering spirit to meet the ever changing needs of our customers and keep pace with new weapon system launches. This is why our Research & Development team never stops – to ensure that our products continue to meet our high standards and that the ongoing challenge of excellence is always our highest priority.
All UTM products are manufactured under ISO 9000 disciplines at our own engineering and manufacturing facilities. The weapon conversions are manufactured in-house, a key ingredient for quality control and gives us the flexibility to quickly develop new product requirements.
Since the initial product conception, our extensive research in materials and manufacturing technologies has allowed us to make significant enhancements to cartridge reliability, safety, performance and overall appearance.
Pistols, submachine guns, assault rifles/carbines, light machine guns, you name it – we’ve got it. We have the widest range of weapon conversions, period. All of our conversions are developed to use the SBR, BBR, MMR and TBR (some restrictions may apply to TBR).
