Suwanee, GA – Meggitt Training Systems will showcase virtual and live-fire range products for a comprehensive weapons-training solution at the 13th International Defence Industry Fair (IDEF) in Istanbul, Turkey on May 9-12, 2017.
“Threats posed by terrorist organizations and other unconventional forces dictate an evolution in military and law enforcement weapons training to incorporate new scenarios,” said Jeff Murphy, president, Meggitt Training Systems. “We look forward to exhibiting at IDEF for the first time and see significant sales opportunities at the national, regional and local levels for our virtual and live-fire products.”
Meggitt solutions to be highlighted at IDEF 2017 include:
- The FATS® 100MIL is a major expansion in weapons training capability, introducing revolutionary features such as advanced game engine 3-D marksmanship, enhanced diagnostics with intelligent automatic coaching and VBS3-based collective training. In addition, the FATS 100MIL allows assignment of Meggitt’s patented wireless BlueFire® weapons to each trainee.
- The GranTrap™ granulated rubber bullet trap utilizes soft media to stop incoming rounds and capture them predominately intact. This minimizes airborne lead dust, averts back-splatter and ricochet, and minimizes impact noise. The result is a cleaner and safer environment for shooting ranges, maximizing bullet recovery and recycling processes.
- The XWT wireless target carrier is available in both indoor and outdoor versions and is weather-resistant for extreme environments. It moves along a rail system, powered by an internal direct-drive, dual-motor system, with anti-static wheels for quieter, smoother operation. A rechargeable battery automatically charges via a self-docking station.
- The Multi-Function Stationary Infantry Target (MF-SIT) offers a fixed target head configuration that can respond to hits, automatic triggers activated by soldier movements, or a pre-programmed scenario, ensuring trainees do not anticipate target actions. This provides a realistic environment for urban operations and specialized training. The system is operated through radio frequency, hardwire or Ethernet controls that enable great flexibility in range design and usage.
Meggitt will exhibit at IDEF with its Turkish distributor IPA Defence, in booth #632 in Tüyap İstanbul Fair and Congress Center. Demonstrations will take place throughout show hours and by appointment at our IDEF 2017 appointment page.
