Tethered simulated weapons
Meggitt’s fire arm training systems' (FATS®) tethered weapon simulators are built with types of form, fit and function law enforcement training requires. The tolerances of our judgmental training systems are within 10% of live weapon weight and center of gravity. Tethered weapons provide the highest degree of weapon control and feedback. Features include butt pressure sensor, trigger squeeze sensor, cant sensor and muzzle trace, reinforcing the fundamentals of marksmanship training. Meggitt’s virtual training weapons can even be fitted with optics, maximizing training potential. Tethered weapons support real-time transmittal and display of weapon handling data to the instructor in the form of displayed weapon sensor data. The instructor can initiate weapon jams via instructor keystroke, designated elapsed scenario time, and/or designated number of shots fired.

Less Lethal weapon simulators
Less lethal training is offered through X26 Taser® and chemical (OC) spray simulators. These additional police training accessories are supported with specialized courseware.
Recoil and refill
Weapon recoil is achieved with compressed air or CO2 gas, providing recoil sufficient to disturb the trainee sight picture, requiring the trainee to reacquire the target after each shot. Air is delivered through a tether connected to an air source (i.e. air tanks or compressor).
