Meggitt Training Systems demonstrates next generation simulation training for Canadian law enforcement
SUWANEE, Ga. --(Business Wire)--
Meggitt Training Systems (Quebec) will provide private demonstrations of
its latest advanced training technologies at this year's BlueLine
Expo, April 29-30; Ajax Convention Center; Ajax, ON (News - Alert) in booth 'G'.
Canadian law enforcement, like other agencies around the globe are
experiencing tighter budgets and increased calls for service. Fewer
training dollars and increased workload, leaves little time and
resources for firearms training.
Senior law enforcement personnel and firearms trainers are continually
looking for effective and efficient ways to maximize training dollars.
The use of marksmanship and scenario-based simulation training systems
combined with live fire contributes to time and cost savings as well as
improved operational performance.
The FATS® L7 is an advanced, self-contained simulation training system
that can reside in a fixed position within a training facility or
contained and easily moved from room to room; ready for officers in
minutes. A compact touch screen tablet PC provides wireless instructor
control for ease of use, while an intuitive graphic interface eliminates
the need for lengthy instructor training in system functioning.
The FATS® L7 system provides basic to advanced marksmanship training.
Within individual Marksmanship Training mode, the system can emulate a
range-type training environment where each officer may shoot a different
exercise, and in accordance with range safety/spacing guidelines, the
system can support training of upto four officers simultaneously.
The FATS® L7 system also provides for judgmental training used to
enhance the officer's understanding of shoot/don't shoot situations, use
of force and the associated decision making process. The system can
support the training of multiple officers simultaneously, and a
combination of up to eight system-controlled weapons in a judgmental
training scenario, enabling team training.
The flexibility and advanced features and authoring tools of the FATS®
L7 allows instructors to continuously adapt training courseware to meet
ever changing departmental needs. Integrated authoring tools provide
instructors with the ability to create new marksmanship training
courses, while the integrated video authoring station supports the
creation of new video scenarios. From active shooters to vehicle stops,
agencies can build their training programs around what their officers
experience on the street.
