Meggitt Training Systems has announced the Middle East debut of its FATS ® 100e virtual training system will take place February 19-23 at IDEX 2017 in Abu Dhabi.

Meggitt representatives will be available for demonstrations of the FATS 100e and other products at the show at both 03-A22.

"The Middle East continues to be a key market for Meggitt and IDEX is the region's premier defense exhibition," said Frank Socolow, managing director, Middle East and North Africa. "The enhanced FATS 100e system and our local dedicated team represent a strong solution for customers."

Introduced in late 2015, the FATS 100e system is a major expansion in weapons training capability, with 3D marksmanship, automatic coaching and VBS3-based collective training. The 3D marksmanship provides 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. The FATS 100e system also features automatic coaching, never before available in the smalls-arms trainng market, and VBS3-based collective training.
