Meggitt Training Systems to Expand Presence at National Sheriffs’ Association Event

May 22, 2019

SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2019--

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.
