Export-Friendly Virtual Simulator to Be Displayed by Meggitt Training Systems at Security & Counter Terror Expo

Del

Meggitt Training Systems, the leading provider of integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training products and services for armed forces and law enforcement, will demonstrate its export-friendly FATS® 100MIL small-arms training system at Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX). The national security event will be held March 6-7, 2018 at Olympia in London.

Meggitt Training Systems’ FATS 100MIL enabled program-of-record wins for the US Army Engagement Skills Trainer (EST II) and the US Marine Corps Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainer (ISMT). Meggitt will demonstrate the system with a variety of weapons, including those based on the company’s BlueFire® wireless technology, the company’s first time exhibiting at SCTX.

“The FATS 100MIL is the result of constant innovation and experience garnered through the delivery and support of 5,100 virtual systems worldwide,” said Mark Mears, European general manager for Meggitt Training Systems. “Customers in the United States, United Kingdom, Italy, Canada, Singapore, Australia, Belgium and elsewhere have chosen Meggitt to fulfill their stringent virtual training requirements.”

The FATS 100MIL is a major expansion in weapons training capability, introducing revolutionary features such as advanced game engine 3D marksmanship, enhanced diagnostics with intelligent automatic coaching and collective training. The new system provides an impressive array of functionality for both instructor and trainee, delivering solid weapon-handling and shot-placement analytics, coaching tools that automatically highlight trainee results for reinforcement or correction, and enhanced graphic capabilities for an all-encompassing immersive training platform.

During the past year, Meggitt has expanded its virtual simulation offerings by introducing the FATS 100P portable training system, featuring full marksmanship and video-based judgmental training capabilities in a compact form factor. It also announced the FATS 300MIL, which provides a five-screen, 300-degree immersive experience for realistic marksmanship, collective and judgmental training. Finally, the company debuted its Live-Fire Screen that brings all the benefits of virtual training to an indoor shooting range or shoot house, thanks to the use of a self-healing rubber screen designed to withstand 50,000 rounds before replacement.

PubMatic, the publisher-focused sell-side platform (SSP) for an open digital media future, today announced findings from its Q4 2017 Quarterly Mobile Index (QMI). The report, which identifies trends in mobile advertising, found that mobile private marketplaces (PMPs) monetized impression volume increased by 37 percent year-over-year (YOY) in Q4 2017, adding to a long growth streak for mobile PMPs now spanning eight consecutive quarters. The upswing for mobile PMPs is attributed to major marketers continuing to increase spend through programmatic channels. PMPs offer robust options for advertisers to gain access to premium inventory coupled with safeguards for ad fraud and brand risk, amid growing concerns about quality, viewability and transparency. For publishers, PMPs provide more control over their inventory and partnership with buyers. As a result, mobile PMP eCPMs globally in 2017 were priced at a 155 percent premium, compared to those paid for the average mobile open exchange imp
