Meggitt Training Systems to Highlight Full Range of Export-Friendly, Small-Arms Simulators at ITEC

Jaa

Meggitt Training Systems will conduct demonstrations of its FATS® 100MIL at ITEC 2018 at Messe Stuttgart in Germany during May 15-17. Leveraging key features from the US Army Engagement Skills Trainer II and US Marine Corps Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainer programs of record, the industry-leading FATS 100MIL delivers a significant expansion in virtual small-arms training capability.

The FATS 100MIL introduced revolutionary features such as advanced game engine 3D marksmanship, enhanced diagnostics with intelligent automatic coaching and collective training. The 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 training platform. During ITEC, company representatives will be available for demonstrations of the export-ready product, along with a variety of BlueFire® wireless weapons, mortars and other simulators.

“The FATS 100MIL is uniquely qualified to meet increasingly rigorous training requirements driven by conventional and asymmetric threats across Europe,” said Mark Mears, managing director at Meggitt Training Systems, Ltd. “The FATS 100MIL, along with its new FATS 100P and FATS 300MIL siblings, delivers maximum realism in an era of constrained military budgets.”

The FATS 100P features advanced functionality for both instructor and trainee, delivering weapon handling and shot placement analytics, marksmanship automatic coaching tools, video-based judgmental training for escalation and de-escalation, and enhanced graphic capabilities, all in a compact package. Portable and light, the FATS 100P comes in two rugged hand-carry cases the size of a large range bag that allow easy transportation, set-up and operation by one person. Up to six weapon simulators, including wireless BlueFire ones, can be run simultaneously.

The immersive FATS 300MIL includes five, free-standing flat screens, each featuring a 150”x84”, 16:9 aspect ratio, borderless projection surface arranged in hexagonal format. Five digital cameras feed information into the hit detection system, while ultra-short-throw projectors allow users freedom of movement within the training space. The system can be operated in a variety of lighting conditions, featuring a combination of scenario 5.1 audio sounds, plus those added by the instructor for increased realism.

Biosimilars could facilitate early access to life changing biological treatments for patients says Celltrion Healthcare21.5.2018 14:27Tiedote

At the International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research (ISPOR) 23rd Annual International Meeting in Baltimore, Celltrion Healthcare today advocated for healthcare systems to introduce biologics earlier in a patient’s treatment regimen in order to improve clinical outcomes. Several studies show that the early introduction of biologics can bring greater clinical benefit to patients.1,2,3,4,5,6 However, only a limited number of patients have access to biological treatment due to the high-cost of biologics and current reimbursement policies determined by pharmacoeconomic evaluations. Since the introduction of biosimilars, the overall cost of biological treatments has reduced in Europe, allowing an increased number of patients to access this important treatment option earlier in their course of treatment.7 Professor Jørgen Jahnsen said, “For the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, biological treatments are proven to be the most efficacious medical therapy and their ea
