Indoor Skydive Australia (ASX: IDZ) today leads ASX tech stocks, up 22.22% from the announcement of its intention to acquire virtual reality production studio Red Cartel.
In 2019, Red Cartel created the world-class VR free roaming game for ISA’s FREAK entertainment business, but the main calling card is Red Cartel’s military VR training tool.
This makes sense, given the military training applications already in place at ISA’s indoor parachuting centers and the fact that this company was founded by two former SAS soldiers.
The VR military training tool which has been developed taking into account current defense needs and is scheduled for live testing within 6 months of acquisition.
“The acquisition of Red Cartel opens up major opportunities in the consumer and business markets,” said Wayne Jones, CEO of ISA Group.
“The ability to create custom content and specific military-grade equipment allows us to engage directly with military units and law enforcement around the world. “
