Meggitt Training Systems to Demonstrate Live-Fire and Virtual Solutions at 2020 SHOT Show

December 19, 2019 GMT

SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 19, 2019--

Meggitt Training Systems (booths #12267 and 6602) will display its full range of live-fire and virtual training products in multiple locations at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) and Conference at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nev., Jan. 21-24, 2020. Fielding more than 13,600 ranges worldwide since 1926, Meggitt is the industry leader in turnkey shooting range design, equipment and installation for law enforcement and commercial ranges. It is also the undisputed leader in virtual training systems chosen by the world’s most demanding military and law enforcement customers.

“Meggitt Training Systems’ expanding product portfolio leverages an unparalleled combination of in-house military and law enforcement expertise with global customer feedback,” said Andrea Czop, vice president of strategy, sales and marketing for Meggitt Training Systems. “As live-fire and virtual training evolve and increasingly overlap, I encourage SHOT Show attendees to talk to us at our booths, on the range and after our Law Enforcement Education Program presentation.”

Meggitt’s live-fire solutions on display at booth 12267 will include:

The company also will have models on display of the GranTrap™ rubber bullet trap, LE5000 escalator steel bullet trap, SHOTT™ House tactical environment and the RoadRange™ mobile indoor range.

In booth 6602, part of the Law Enforcement Pavilion, Meggitt Training Systems will exhibit the FATS ® 100P portable virtual training system. The 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 wireless BlueFire ® ones on display, can be run simultaneously.

In addition to Meggitt’s exhibit hall presence, the company will participate in the Law Enforcement Education Program (LEEP). Company representative Heath Shaw will present “Staying on Target: How to Outfit your Shooting Range for Maximum Safety and Efficiency” on Tuesday, Jan. 21 from 10:45-11:45 am in Marcello Room 4504, part of the Sands Expo. Shaw will share industry insight on live-fire range development and operation trends, including indoor range equipment, such as target carriers, baffles and bullet traps. Outdoor ranges will also be featured, with emphasis on sound abatement and rubber bullet traps to meet stringent EPA regulations. The company will discuss increasing requirements from law enforcement agencies for ranges that can accommodate dynamic, tactical training on the move. Show attendees can register for this LEEP session at https://shotshow.org/leep/.

Finally, Meggitt Training Systems will participate in the 15 th Annual SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range on Monday, Jan. 20. Attendees at that event will have the opportunity to view and fire at Meggitt’s MF-SIT with LOMAH functionality. Barrett weapons and ammunition will be provided for this demonstration.
