Firearms Training Simulator (F.A.T.S.)

Andrews International Training Center's Firearms Training System (F.A.T.S.) is an innovative training tool currently in use by the military and many police departments nationwide. It is designed to develop and sharpen an armed security professional's or police officer's discretionary skills as well as reinforce conflict resolution abilities in real time. F.A.T.S. can also be used as a very effective Corporate team building exercise.

The F.A.T.S. simulator is essentially a single-room virtual shootout that confronts a student with on-screen real world tactical scenarios. The moment-to-moment and ultimate outcomes of these scenarios are based upon the student's voice commands and actions. The Advanced Interactive Systems ELS300 places the officer inside a virtual, interactive environment that forces immediate judgments in a variety of tactical situations. An A.I.T.C. Instructor observes what the student says and does and controls the "on screen" potentially hostile subject's behavior that makes the confrontations tactically demanding and interactive.

The Firearms Training Simulator (F.A.T.S.) also supports marksmanship and judgmental training for non-lethal options such as verbal commands, baton, chemical spray and TASER® in addition to hundreds of different firearm types. Judgmental training includes force escalation/de-escalation, use of force and shoot/no shoot.
