Suwanee, GA – In today’s world of police training, technology has truly evolved. Enter the virtual world of multiple screens, hi-definition video, surround sound, realistic weapon simulators and simulated hostile encounters. The Miami Police Department will officially start a test and evaluation for Meggitt Training System (Meggitt) FATS® 300LE, the company’s immersive virtual training system, on Tuesday, August 7, 2018, at 10 a.m., at the Miami Police Department’s Training Center, located at 350 N.W. 2 Ave., Miami, Florida. The FATS 300LE provides a 300° immersive training environment with high-definition and 5.1 surround sound to train law enforcement in use of force evaluations and de-escalation tactics for real world situations.
The FATS 300LE delivers true-to-life, comprehensive training and includes:
- Screens – 5 borderless flat screens spanning 5 of the 6 sides of a hexagon. The 6th side is used as the entry into the FATS 300LE. Each screen provides 150” x 84” (16:9 aspect ratio) borderless projection surface.
- Hit Detection System – 5 digital cameras interface directly to the same Off-CPU real-time (OCR) processor used by the FATS® 100LE and MIL systems for an easy upgrade path.
- Projectors – Ultra short throw projectors provide the user greater freedom of movement within the training space while displaying stunning visuals in a 300° environment.
- Low-Light Subsystem (optional) – Allows users to practice in simulated low-light conditions with both hand-held and weapon-mounted flashlights.
- Surround Sound – The self-powered audio system plays scenarios in 5.1 surround sound. Using the directional sound effects board, the instructor can add in unsettling sounds from any direction, including a barking dog, crying baby, gunshots and more to elevate situational awareness.
