SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Meggitt Training Systems will highlight its full range of small-arms training systems at the 41st Annual California Police Chiefs Association Training Symposium. The law enforcement event will be held March 18-22, 2018 at the Long Beach Convention Center in Long Beach, Calif.
“Meggitt’s growing product line of simulators is designed to meet all law enforcement requirements, from portability to full immersion,” said Michael Paulk, Meggitt’s director of virtual systems. “CPCA attendees are invited to see a demo of the portable FATS® 100P, plus learn about our military-grade FATS 100LE and multi-screen FATS 300LE.”
Meggitt Training Systems sources a significant amount of its workforce from law enforcement. As such, the company is ideally positioned to leverage that expertise to address evolving police market requirements. Products to be highlighted at CPCA will include:
- 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 allows easy transportation, set up and operation by one person. Up to six weapon simulators, including wireless BlueFire® ones, can be run simultaneously.
- 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.
- The FATS 300LE includes five, free-standing flat screens, each featuring a 150”x84”, 16:9 aspect ratio, borderless projection surface arranged in hexagonal format. Five digital cameras feed information into the hit detection system, while ultra-short-throw projectors allow users freedom of movement within the training space. The system can be operated in a variety of lighting conditions, featuring a combination of scenario 5.1 audio sounds, plus those added by the instructor for increased realism.
