SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Meggitt Training Systems will highlight its range of virtual and live-fire, small-arms training systems for law enforcement applications at TacOps West. The training conference, supported by four western state tactical associations, will be held May 8-10, 2019 at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort.
“Meggitt’s investments to expand our already industry-leading range of virtual, live-fire and integrated solutions will help law enforcement meet their evolving readiness requirements,” said Andrea Czop, vice president of strategy, sales and marketing for Meggitt Training Systems. “TacOps West attendees are invited to see a demo of the portable FATS® 100P, as well as learn about our live-fire SHOTT™ House and RoadRange™. These products enable tactical and other law enforcement units to improve marksmanship, as well as learn escalation/de-escalation skills through video scenarios ranging from domestic disputes to active shooters.”
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, ideal for departments sharing resources or conducting public affairs for citizen groups. Up to six weapon simulators, including Meggitt’s patented BlueFire® wireless weapons, can be run simultaneously.
SHOTT House stands for Shoot House Optimized for Tactical Training and provides tactical officers the opportunity to practice securing a structure using live weapons and even a squad car or other vehicle. 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 law enforcement officer marksmanship, sustainment and judgmental training, including force escalation and de-escalation.
