Meggitt Training Systems Plans Canadian Debut of Simulator at CACP

SUWANEE, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Meggitt Training Systems will showcase both virtual and live-fire
training products for a comprehensive weapons-training solution at the
112th annual Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police (CACP) Conference
in Montréal, Québec, on July 16-19, 2017.

A variety of Meggitt products will be on display, including the Canadian
debut of the FATS® 100LE firearms
training simulator paired with C8, Sig 226, Glock 17 and M4 Convertible
weapons. The company will also highlight its GranTrap™ rubber
bullet trap and other turnkey live-fire range solutions, all backed by
24/7 customer service support.

“The Canadian debut of the FATS 100LE simulator demonstrates Meggitt
Training Systems’ commitment to innovation on behalf of our customers in
light of evolving requirements,” said Ed Duckless, president, Meggitt
Training Systems, Quebec. “Law enforcement departments will benefit from
a suite of military-grade capabilities designed to maximize marksmanship
and judgmental training.”

The FATS 100LE simulator leverages state-of-the-art technology recently
developed for and delivered to the US Army and Marine Corps, but
customized for law enforcement training. Law enforcement specific
features include the introduction of 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 multiple screen capability, enhanced visuals, multiple
weapons per trainee and wireless BlueFire® weapons. On-site
installation and training are provided by Meggitt Canadian personnel to
ensure the industry’s most sophisticated use-of-force simulator is ready
for optimal use.

The GranTrap granulated rubber bullet trap utilizes soft media to stop
incoming rounds and capture them predominately intact, minimizing
airborne lead dust, averting back-splatter and ricochet, and minimizing
impact noise. The result is a cleaner and safer environment for shooting
ranges, maximizing bullet recovery and recycling processes.

Company representatives will be on hand to discuss the comprehensive
array of range design, development, equipment and installation services
available. Meggitt’s “10 Commandments of Clean and Healthy Range Design”
illustrates best practices as ranges are in the planning stages:

Demonstrations will be held at booth #627 in Montréal’s Palais des
Congrès throughout the day and by appointment at:
