Meggitt Training Systems to Exhibit Small-Arms Simulators for Enhanced Readiness at TACOPS East


Meggitt Training Systems will highlight its full range of FATS® small-arms
simulators at TACOPS East. The training conference, supported by
tactical teams from Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia, will be
held September 5-7, 2018 at the Marriott Crystal Gateway in Arlington,

"Tactical law enforcement challenges continue to evolve and Meggitt's
growing product line of simulators has done the same, thanks to in-house
expertise and customer feedback," said Matt Cunningham, Meggitt's
director of virtual systems sales. "From the portable FATS 100P to the
full-featured 100LE, we help agencies of all sizes enhance accuracy and
readiness at a time when both are more important than ever."

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 100LE simulator leverages state-of-the-art technology
developed for and delivered to the US Army and Marine Corps, but
customized for law enforcement training. Police-specific features
include 3D marksmanship training, wireless tablet control with
auto-coaching, and an intuitive unified interface across all training
modes – for ease of use and reduction in training requirements.
Consistent with its premium positioning, the FATS 100LE also features
multiple screen capability, enhanced visuals, multiple weapons per
trainee and BlueFire weapons. On-site installation and training are
provided by Meggitt personnel to ensure the industry's most
sophisticated use-of-force simulator is ready for optimal use.
