Meggitt Training Systems Returns to Warrior Expo East with Virtual and Live-Fire Equipment

Sponsored by Businesswire

Meggitt Training Systems will highlight its range of virtual and
live-fire weapons training systems for military and law enforcement
organizations at Warrior Expo East 2019. The event will be held July
10-11, 2019 at the Virginia Beach Convention Center in Virginia Beach,

“Readiness training to counter new threats to U.S. and allied forces has
never been more important and Meggitt delivers through our
industry-leading range of virtual, live-fire and integrated solutions,”
said Andrea Czop, vice president of strategy, sales and marketing for
Meggitt Training Systems. “Warrior Expo East attendees are invited to
see how the portable FATS® 100P, as well
as our live-fire Stationary Infantry Target and LOMAH
products can help armed forces train effectively, from simulator to the
firing range.”

The FATS 100P features advanced functionality for both instructor
and trainee, delivering weapon handling and shot placement analytics,
marksmanship automatic coaching tools, video-based judgmental training
for de-escalation of force 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. Up to six weapon
simulators, including Meggitt’s patented wireless BlueFire®,
can be run simultaneously.

Meggitt’s Stationary Infantry Target (SIT) is a remote-controlled
pop-up target actuator, capable of supporting a variety of target
silhouettes. The lightweight and portable target adapts to a variety of
range environments, infrastructures and operational constraints, and
does not contain hydraulic fluids, contaminants or hazardous toxins. The LOMAH
(location of miss and hit)
system adds shot scoring by measuring the
precise time of a bullet’s supersonic shock wave passing over a
ballistically protected microphone sensor array. Triangulation of sound
waves for hit location makes Meggitt’s offering unique in this market,
computing the bullet’s location and presenting a graphical image on the
shooter’s firing point computer. The bullet’s measured location provides
the shooter the information needed to accurately display shot grouping
and zeroing of weapons more effectively, resulting in improved
marksmanship skills. LOMAH can be installed easily via a retrofit kit or
on new, LOMAH-capable Meggitt targets such as the SIT.
