Meggitt Training Systems to Demonstrate Law Enforcement Marksmanship Products at TacOps East

Sponsored by Businesswire

Meggitt Training Systems will highlight its range of virtual and live-fire, small-arms training systems for law enforcement applications at TacOps East. The conference, hosted by the National Capital Region SWAT Association, will be held on September 4-6 at the Marriott Crystal Gateway in Arlington, Va.

“Meggitt continues to invest in our industry-leading simulators, like the portable FATS® 100P, that provide an unequaled level of marksmanship training thanks to military-grade ballistics data,” said Andrea Czop, vice president of strategy, sales and marketing for Meggitt Training Systems. “These simulators are complemented by our patented BlueFire® wireless weapons, which replicate real-world form, fit and function to a greater degree than any other simulated weapon family. Together, they represent the best solution to meet evolving law enforcement training requirements at a time when accuracy has never been more important.”

The FATS 100P simulator 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, ideal for departments sharing resources or conducting public affairs for citizen groups.

Up to six weapon simulators, including BlueFire® ones, can be run simultaneously. At TacOps East, Meggitt will demonstrate the FATS 100P’s marksmanship capabilities with three pistols (a Glock 17, Smith & Wesson M&P and Sig Sauer P229), as well as an M4 rifle, TASER and OC spray.
