I/ITSEC 2017: Meggitt Training Systems Debuts FATS 300

New immersive, multi-screen training system

At I/ITSEC 2017, Meggitt Training Systems, a leading provider of integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training products and services for armed forces and law enforcement, introduces its new immersive, multi-screen FATS 300 system, following the introduction of the FATS 100P portable training system and Live-Fire Screen earlier this autumn. 

FATS 300 includes five free-standing flat screens, each featuring a 150x84in, 16:9 aspect ratio, borderless projection surface. These are arranged in hexagonal format with the remaining side used as an entrance. Five digital cameras feed information into the hit detection system. 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 sounds, plus those added by the instructor for increased realism. 

“Our new FATS 300 system increases the capability and effectiveness of our military and law enforcement training products by providing a truly immersive environment,” Meggitt Training Systems President Jeff Murphy, explained. “Existing FATS 100MIL and FATS 100LE customers can upgrade to a 300-degree, high-definition experience complete with 5.1 surround sound. Now trainers can create even higher levels of realism in a variety of marksmanship, judgmental and collective scenarios.” 

The FATS 300 configuration supports weapon and ammunition types available on the FATS 100MIL and 100LE systems. These include rifles, pistols, machine guns, anti-armor and non-lethal deterrents like pepper spray and Taser. Other weapon types can be added via installed software. The system can support up to 20 simulated weapons, including a maximum of four assigned to a single user. 

I/ITSEC is showcasing the future of innovation across defences and www.monch.com brings together key developments from the show. For more information please see MILITARY TECHNOLOGY #11/2017, available on booth #257; and frequently check back for more NEWS FROM THE FLOOR.
