Meggitt Training Systems completed a test and evaluation with the Miami Police Department in Florida for its FATS® 300LE next-generation training system that delivers virtual scenarios to train police officers in split-second, use-of-force evaluations and de-escalation tactics for real-world situations.

The FATS 300LE can replicate many real-world situations including domestic family disputes, traffic stops and school shootings, which Meggitt says can help improve the way law enforcement professionals react and behave in stressful and life-threatening situations.

The system includes five, free-standing flat screens with 150-by-84-inch borderless projection surfaces arranged in a hexagonal format that creates a 300-degree, virtual environment. It can track weapon movement and provide trainers with detailed information for post-action reports.
