SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Meggitt Training Systems will highlight its full range of small-arms training systems at Warrior Expo West for the first time. The defense resource and training event will be held April 18-19, 2018 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif.
“Meggitt’s growing product line of simulators is designed to meet all military requirements, from portability to full immersion,” said Michael Paulk, Meggitt’s director of virtual systems. “Warrior Expo West attendees are invited to see a demo of the portable FATS® 100P, learn about our multi-screen FATS 300MIL, and see a variety of Glock, SIG SAUER, M4, X26P, OC spray and shotgun wireless BlueFire® weapons.”
Meggitt Training Systems sources a significant amount of its workforce from the military. As such, the company is ideally positioned to leverage that expertise to address evolving armed forces requirements. Products to be highlighted at Warrior Expo West 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 300MIL 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.
