Meggitt Training Systems to Emphasize Readiness via Portable Small-Arms Simulator at NGAUS Conference


Meggitt Training Systems will conduct demonstrations of its FATS®
100P portable simulator at the National Guard Association of the United
States 104th Conference in New Orleans on August 24-27.
Leveraging key features from the US Army Engagement Skills Trainer II
and US Marine Corps Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainer programs of
record, the industry-leading FATS 100P delivers a significant expansion
in virtual small-arms training capability.

"The EST II architecture, as seen in the FATS 100P at NGAUS, is proving
invaluable as the Army's small-arms training system of record," said
Matt Cunningham, Meggitt's manager of virtual systems. "As such, it's
the ideal solution for Army National Guard and Reserve units seeking
similar proficiency levels in marksmanship and judgmental small-arms
training with maximum mobility."

The FATS 100P features advanced functionality for both instructor and
trainee, delivering weapon handling and shot placement analytics,
marksmanship automatic coaching tools, video-based judgmental training
for escalation and de-escalation, and enhanced graphic capabilities, all
in a compact package. Portable and light, the FATS 100P comes in two
rugged hand-carry cases the size of a large range bag that allow easy
transportation, set-up and operation by one person. Up to six weapon
simulators, including wireless BlueFire® ones, can be run

"The FATS 100P can be the perfect complement to EST II for smaller or
remote National Guard or Reserve units, providing a similar level of
marksmanship and judgmental training as the EST II in a portable form
factor," noted Cunningham. "It also can facilitate the sharing of
training resources among units, as well as enable field deployment for
easy set-up in a room that's not a dedicated training space."
