SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Meggitt Training Systems will emphasize its long-standing Australian presence and demonstrate the FATS® 100MIL simulator at Land Forces 2018, to be held September 4-6 in Adelaide. Meggitt Training Systems Australia has installed, maintained and operated small-arms simulators for the Australian Defence Force since 1999. Meggitt’s FATS 100MIL-based Weapon Training Simulation Systems will commence roll out to 19 ADF locations in December 2018.
“During the past two decades, Meggitt Training Systems Australia has gained invaluable experience with the ADF’s evolving training requirements, delivering custom scenarios rapidly and cost-effectively,” said Chris Jordan, MTSA’s managing director. “Meggitt’s FATS 100MIL is uniquely qualified to meet future Australian needs through maximum realism and system performance, as proven by our selection by the US Army and Marine Corps for their small-arms training programs of record.”
The FATS 100MIL introduced revolutionary features such as advanced game engine 3D marksmanship, enhanced diagnostics with intelligent coaching and collective training. The system provides an impressive array of functionality for both instructor and trainee, delivering solid weapon-handling and shot-placement analytics, coaching tools that automatically highlight trainee results for reinforcement or correction, and enhanced graphic capabilities for an all-encompassing training platform. During Land Forces, company representatives will be available for demonstrations of the export-ready product, along with a variety of BlueFire® wireless weapons and other simulators.
