Meggitt Demonstrates FATS(R) M100 Simulation System Architecture at ITEC 2013 
SUWANEE, GA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/13 --   The leading supplier of
integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training systems, Meggitt
Training Systems will demonstrate the FATS(R) M100 simulation system
architecture at the ITEC 2013 defence and simulation conference. The
FATS(R) M100 demonstration will highlight multiple simulation and
training modes using the flexible architecture needed to integrate
Meggitt and third-party simulation, training and gaming products.  
The integration of training capabilities based upon CryENGINE(R)3 and
VBS2 virtual imaging software forms the basis of advanced reality
training products developed for Meggitt's FATS(R) M100. The system
highlights the adaptable architecture and modularity that supports
the rapid integration of evolving simulation technologies.  
The FATS(R) M100 system, based on the software used to create
blockbuster games, movies, high-quality simulations and interactive
applications, supports the military training industry's
next-generation training systems and Meggitt's own simulated weapons
selection. The ITEC demonstrations will include marksmanship,
judgmental video, traditional computer-generated imagery and Meggitt
Training Systems' advanced reality training products. 
Ronald Vadas, president of Meggitt Training Systems, commented, "We
continue to invest in new product developments to meet the needs of
our customers in times of changing operational and budgetary
requirements. FATS(R) M100 allows the rapid development of training
options for customer requirements in a modular, cost-effective
package."  
Demonstrations will be available throughout the day at ITEC 2013 at
Stand C132, 22-24 May; Fiera di Roma, Rome, or by appointment at
