Meggitt to showcase training simulator at Australian conference
SUWANEE, GA Aug. 23, 2016 Meggitt Training Systems, the leading supplier of integrated live fire and virtual weapons training systems, will showcase weapon simulators delivered under contract to the Australian Defence Force and the new FATS® 100e small arms trainer at Land Forces 2016 in Adelaide, Australia, 6-8 September.
“Defence forces and law enforcement agencies see us as a strategic partner, which is why we have sustained world leadership in live-fire and virtual training systems,” said Chris Jordan, managing director, Meggitt Training Systems Australia. “Our partnership with the Australian Defence Force and other organisations throughout the Asia-Pacific region proves the enduring value of our approach to systems and simulators, which offer enhanced training and increased capabilities through simple marksmanship, diagnostic and small group training tools. This empowers instructors and commanders to get their personnel trained quickly.”
At booth 2V29 at Land Forces 2016, Meggitt will be demonstrating its new FATS® 100e and a range of recently delivered weapon simulators including the 84mm Carl Gustaf with various ammunition natures and patented BlueFire® simulators.
The FATS® 100e system is an extension of the proven and popular FATS® M100 and a major expansion in weapons training capability, introducing new features such as Crytek-based 3D marksmanship, automatic coaching and VBS3-based collective training. The 3D marksmanship provides visually realistic and highly detailed terrains and targets, including weather, and striking visual effects including wind-blown environments, birds in flight, dirt splashes and explosions. Automatic coaching has never been available in the small-arms training market, and VBS3-based collective training is a new Meggitt offering.
The latest Carl Gustaf 84mm simulator enables use of the full suite of 84mm ammunition available to the Australian Defence Force. Trainees can now engage simulated targets with air burst or impact using the simulated FFV441 HE round, impact and delay with the FFV502 HEDP round, illuminate or obscure the battlefield with the FFV545 Illumination or FFV469 Smoke rounds and engage armoured vehicles with the FFV551 HEAT rounds.
