United States and allied forces worldwide will soon have access to the newest and most advanced small-arms training system. Georgia-based Meggitt Training Systems will introduce the FATS®100e, an evolutionary step forward from previous virtual-reality solutions, at this year’s Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) from Nov. 30 – Dec. 3 in Orlando, Fla. The new FATS100e system solution is an extension of the proven and popular FATS M100 and a major expansion in weapons training capability, introducing new features such as Crytek-based 3D lanes, automatic coaching and VBS3-based collective training. The 3D lanes provide visually realistic and highly detailed terrains and targets, including weather, and striking visual effects including wind-blown environments, birds in flight, dirt splashes and explosions. Automatic coaching has never been available in the small-arms training market, and collective training is new to the VBS3 system.
