Meggitt Training Systems will highlight its range of virtual and live-fire, small-arms training systems for military applications at Warrior Expo West 2019. The event will be held May 14-15, 2019 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.
“Meggitt helps the military train for new threats to U.S. and allied security through continuous investments in our industry-leading range of virtual, live-fire and integrated solutions,” said Andrea Czop, vice president of strategy, sales and marketing for Meggitt Training Systems. “Warrior Expo West attendees are invited to see and learn how the portable FATS® 100P, as well live-fire SHOTT™ House and RoadRange™ products can help armed forces make a seamless and cost-effective transition from the simulator to the firing range.”
The FATS 100P simulator 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, enabling the use of one system by multiple military units to maximize resources. Up to six weapon simulators, including Meggitt’s patented BlueFire® wireless weapons, can be run simultaneously and only FATS systems incorporate ballistics data from the U.S. Army Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center.
SHOTT House stands for Shoot House Optimized for Tactical Training and provides warfighters the opportunity to practice securing a structure using live weapons, ideal for military operations in an urban terrain or counter-terror activities. RoadRange is a ballistically secure mobile trailer, fully equipped to produce a three-position, state-of-the-art, live-fire range for training anywhere. Both the SHOTT House and RoadRange can be equipped with a FATS virtual training system to provide a comprehensive solution for marksmanship, sustainment and judgmental training, including force escalation and de-escalation.
