Meggitt Training Systems to Highlight Portable Small-Arms Simulator at Warrior Expo East

Meggitt Training Systems will highlight its portable FATS®
100P small-arms training system at Warrior Expo East for the first time.
The defense resource and training event will be held July 11-12, 2018 at
the Virginia Beach Convention Center in Virginia Beach, Va.

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 allow easy
transportation, set-up and operation by one person. Up to six weapon
simulators, including wireless BlueFire® ones, can be run

“The FATS 100P leverages technology from our full-sized FATS 100MIL,
versions of which serve as the system of record for the US Army, US
Marine Corps and numerous international customers,” said Matt
Cunningham, Meggitt’s director of virtual systems. “Warrior Expo East
attendees are invited to see how the FATS 100P is ideal for marksmanship
and judgmental training anytime, anywhere.”

For customers who require additional levels of immersion, 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.
