SUWANEE, Ga. --(Business Wire)--
Meggitt Training Systems, the leading supplier of integrated live fire
and virtual weapons training systems, will join defense agencies and
personnel from Australia, Asia and the Indo-Pacific region to
demonstrate and discuss the latest in next generation simulation
training systems at Land Forces 2014 in Brisbane, Australia, 22-25
"For many years Meggitt Training Systems and its predecessors, Firearms
Training Systems (FATS®) and Caswell Technologies, have been providing
live fire and virtual training systems to Defence Forces and Law
Enforcement Agencies throughout the Asia Pacific region," said Leon
Helmrich, Sales and Business Development Manager for Meggitt Training
Systems Australia. "At Land Forces 2014, Meggitt will present the latest
FATS® M100 advanced reality marksmanship training simulator."
In the past, continually changing training requirements meant purchasing
additional systems or equipment. The new FATS® M100 provides
a flexible system architecture that rapidly evolves to meet current and
future training needs and enhance combat readiness.
Configured with the FATS® M00, Meggitt Training Systems will
provide private demonstrations of convertible, fully-sensored,

video courseware; a new wireless, tablet-based training tool; and
automatic coaching tools.
Additionally, representatives will be available to discuss Meggitt's
motion platform training systems, to include convoy trainers, armoured
vehicle trainers and simulators.
