Meggitt Training Systems to Highlight Full Range of Live-Fire and Virtual Solutions at 2019 SHOT Show

Share:

Meggitt Training Systems (booth #12267) will display its full range of
live-fire and virtual training products at the Shooting, Hunting and
Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) and Conference in Las Vegas, Nev., Jan.
22-25, 2019. Driven by a nine-decade legacy fielding more than 13,600
ranges worldwide since 1926, Meggitt is the industry leader in turnkey
shooting range design, equipment and installation for law enforcement
and commercial ranges. It is also the undisputed leader in virtual
training systems chosen by the world's most demanding customers.

"Meggitt Training Systems combines in-house military and law enforcement
expertise with global customer feedback to drive innovation across our
product portfolio," said Andrea Czop, vice president of strategy, sales
and marketing for Meggitt Training Systems. "Our solutions don't just
set industry benchmarks in live-fire or virtual, they also show what's
possible as both businesses become increasingly integrated to provide
unprecedented capabilities."

Meggitt's live-fire solutions on display in two shooting stalls will
include:

  • The XWT ProImage® projected target system
    revolutionizes image and video targets for indoor shooting ranges. An
    industry first, the system is a compact video projector and camera
    system that attaches to Meggitt's XWT target carrier and can move
    downrange to any distance on the track. Wirelessly connected to a 10"
    lane control unit mounted to the shooting stall, the system projects
    interactive games, digital videos and images that a shooter can upload
    onto white paper or cardboard targets. The onboard camera provides a
    streaming, close-up view of the target for instantaneous feedback,
    including bullet hole tracking displayed on a tablet. The XWT ProImage
    is a simple addition to any XWT GEN3 or GEN4 carrier, uses lithium
    batteries, and with the XWT, it docks and charges while in operation.
  • The XWT GEN4 wireless target carrier builds on the industry's
    first wireless, 360º turning system. The XWT GEN4 uses a lithium ion
    battery with a positive locking connection and ergonomic placement.
    This technology provides a 50% increase in battery watt hours. The new
    docking system improves contact design for faster, more reliable
    charging; that means more time using the XWT GEN4 and less time
    charging it. Programmable distraction lighting now integrates red,
    blue and white LEDs with four times the brightness of previous models.
    The chassis features a new side cover design for wheel overhead
    protection and prevention of brass drivetrain damage. Anti-static
    wheels eliminate grounding tinsel and reduce electrostatic discharge.

The company also will have models on display of the GranTrap™
rubber bullet trap, LE5000 escalator steel bullet trap and RoadRange™
mobile indoor range.

In addition to Meggitt's exhibit hall presence, the company will
demonstrate the FATS 100P portable virtual weapons training system in
the Toscana Ballroom #3703 at the Sands Expo Center. Attendees who
schedule an appointment via the link below can see the FATS 100P®
portable system designed for law enforcement and defense organizations
that require virtual weapons training on the go. 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
simultaneously. Weapons on display this year will include a Glock,
standard patrol rifle, OC spray and Taser X26P.

Finally, Meggitt will participate in SHOT Show's Industry Day at the
Range on January 21, 2019. Attendees at that event will have the
opportunity to view and fire at Meggitt's Multi-Function Stationary
Infantry Target (MF-SIT) System and LOMAH (location of miss and hit).
The MF-SIT has the unique ability to expose from multiple angles with a
friend-or-foe target. Movements are precise, dynamic and respond quickly
to commands of expose, conceal, slice and turn in any combination. In
addition, the MF-SIT will rotate a regulation infantry target through
360 degrees at multiple angles. It can respond to hits; its automatic
triggers activated by shooter movements or a pre-programmed scenario.
This ensures that trainees do not anticipate target actions, which
provides a realistic environment for specialized training.
