“Warrior Expo West attendees are invited to see and learn how the

The FATS 100P simulator features advanced functionality for both
instructor and trainee, delivering weapon handling and shot placement
analytics, marksmanship automatic coaching tools, video-based judgmental
training for escalation and de-escalation, and enhanced graphic
capabilities, all in a compact package. Portable and light, the FATS
100P comes in two rugged hand-carry cases the size of a large range bag
that allow easy transportation, set-up and operation by one person,
enabling the use of one system by multiple military units to maximize
resources. Up to six weapon simulators, including Meggitt’s patented
BlueFire® wireless weapons, can be run simultaneously and
only FATS systems incorporate ballistics data from the U.S. Army
Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center.
SHOTT House stands for Shoot House Optimized for Tactical Training and
provides warfighters the opportunity to practice securing a structure
using live weapons, ideal for military operations in an urban terrain or
counter-terror activities. RoadRange is a ballistically secure mobile
trailer, fully equipped to produce a three-position, state-of-the-art,
live-fire range for training anywhere. Both the SHOTT House and
RoadRange can be equipped with a FATS virtual training system to provide
a comprehensive solution for marksmanship, sustainment and judgmental
training, including force escalation and de-escalation.
