Attention all law enforcement trainers: There is now a fully-functioning, simulated training system you can take with you.
Imagine a lightweight, virtual training system that fits into a carrying case the size of a range bag, yet has all the innovative features and functions you expect from Meggitt Training Systems’ pioneering technology. Good news. Imagination is no longer required. It’s reality. The FATS 100P® compact portability lends itself to unprecedented virtual training applications. Share simulation resources across multiple locations, saving money associated with individual training facilities. Hold outreach events that show the stresses of patrolling to activists and other members of the public. Conduct media relations in newsrooms or educational events in schools. Or simply bring top-quality, robust training closer to the field as needed.
Whatever the application, the FATS 100P virtual training system delivers the advanced functionality for both instructor and trainee previously seen only in much larger systems:
- Solid weapon handling
- Shot placement analytics
- Marksmanship automatic coaching tools
- Enhanced graphic capabilities for an all-encompassing immersive training platform
Facilitating use-of-force training.
Most departments and agencies would like to increase use-of-force training, but they can be hampered by logistical requirements. With the FATS 100P, one officer can transport and set up crucial judgmental training anytime, anywhere.
The FATS 100P employs Meggitt’s proven high-definition video scenarios to produce dynamic escalation and de-escalation for use-of-force training. This simulation demands that the trainee survey and react to verbal cues, facial expressions and overall body language to assess a situation and interact with individuals using proper verbal commands and perishable skills training. Each scenario incorporates whole-task training that facilitates the transfer of skills learned during simulation into real-world situations.
The FATS 100P allows up to six weapon simulators used simultaneously, and comes with more than 250 video scenarios and 1,250 branching options. In conjunction with the scenarios, integrated video authoring allows the instructor to create, edit, score, load and run customer videos locally filmed in familiar locations.
During after-action review, the instructor and trainee can analyze the latter’s actions and discuss proper technique and procedure. Using the feedback , the instructor can identify problematic areas and develop a personalized training plan. Though the FATS 100P is lightweight, the training can still be thorough and memorable.
