At I/ITSEC 2018 on booth #1421, Meggitt Training Systems, a leading provider of integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training products and services for armed forces and law enforcement, highlightz the immersive, five-screen FATS 300 virtual system.
“FATS 300 delivers on immersion for our military and law enforcement customers, including those seeking an easy upgrade from FATS 100MIL and FATS 100LE,” Andrea Czop, Vice President of Strategy, Sales and Marketing for Meggitt Training Systems, says. “Our combination of FATS simulators and realistic weapons enable the most effective marksmanship, judgmental and collective training.”
FATS 300 is one of Meggitt’s newest offerings. Immersion is provided via five borderless 150x84in flat screens arranged in a hexagonal format, 5.1 audio, plus sounds in any direction added by the operator for increased realism. "The system also has ultra-short-throw projectors that allow the trainee unprecedented distance to the entity being engaged, all while maintaining a smaller footprint than rear-projection systems," a company statement reads.
The system utilises the same high-fidelity ballistic engine validated by the US Army and other military customers.
In recent months, Meggitt has created three domestic regional hubs featuring FATS 300LE for law enforcement applications. The hubs, located in Florida, Georgia and California, have generated significant interest from police departments there and elsewhere.
