SUWANEE, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Following a successful 2018 debut, Meggitt Training Systems will
increase its presence at this year’s National Sheriffs’ Association
Annual Conference. The law enforcement and correctional operations event
will be held June 15-18, 2019 at the Kentucky International Convention
Center in Louisville.
“Meggitt’s expanding portfolio of virtual training systems help sheriffs
and other law enforcement officers improve their marksmanship and
judgmental skills at a level no competitor can match,” said Andrea Czop,
vice president of strategy, sales and marketing for Meggitt Training
Systems. “NSA attendees are invited to see demonstrations of the FATS®
100LE, featuring US Army-certified ballistics, as well as our
live-fire products, including the SHOTT™ House and Road Range™
for large-scale or mobile training.”
The FATS 100LE simulator leverages state-of-the-art technology developed
for and delivered to the US Army and Marine Corps, then customized for
law enforcement training. Police-specific features include 3D
marksmanship training, wireless tablet control with auto-coaching, and
an intuitive unified interface across all training modes – for
ease-of-use and reduction in training requirements. Consistent with its
premium positioning, the FATS 100LE also features multi-screen
capability, enhanced visuals and multiple weapons per trainee, including
wireless BlueFire® ones. On-site installation
and training are provided by Meggitt personnel to ensure the industry’s
most sophisticated use-of-force simulator is ready for optimal use.
SHOTT House stands for Shoot House Optimized for Tactical Training and
provides law enforcement 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.
Meggitt Training Systems will also display its Stationary Infantry
Target, a remote-controlled pop-up target actuator, capable of
supporting a variety of target silhouettes. The target adapts to a
variety of range environments, infrastructures and operational
constraints, and does not contain hydraulic fluids, contaminants or
hazardous toxins. Lightweight and portable, SITs are easily transported
and stacked for deployment or storage. The SIT performs all standard
target commands such as expose, conceal, hit-fall, hit-hold and hit-bob.
The user can easily program any combination of commands in scenario mode
without affecting the default settings.
