New Enforce Tac Exhibitor Meggitt Training Systems to Exhibit Portable, Small-Arms Simulator

February 19, 2019

SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 19, 2019--Meggitt Training Systems will conduct demonstrations of its FATS ®  100P portable simulator during its first visit to Enforce Tac (stand 12-129) on March 6-7, 2019, in Nuremberg, Germany.

Leveraging key features from the US Army Engagement Skills Trainer II and US Marine Corps Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainer programs of record, the industry-leading FATS 100P delivers a significant expansion in virtual small-arms training capability and is ideally suited for use by European law enforcement departments.

“As tactical law enforcement challenges evolve, Meggitt is leveraging in-house expertise and customer feedback to expand its line of simulators from the immersive FATS 300 and 180 to the portable 100P,” said Matt Cunningham, Meggitt’s director of virtual systems sales. “Enforce Tac visitors to our stand can learn more, especially how the FATS 100P facilitates training resource sharing among units, as well as enables field deployment for easy set-up in a room that’s not a dedicated training space.”

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 ®  and convertible BlueRail ®  ones, can be run simultaneously. Meggitt weapons on display will include M4 carbines, Glock G17 pistols, OC spray and a Taser X26P.

To see a demonstration of Meggitt’s FATS 100P simulator, plus speak with a company representative during Enforce Tac, visit stand 12-129 or schedule an appointment at  https://meggitttrainingsystems.com/about/request-a-meeting-with-meggitt-training-systems/.
