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.

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.
