ATLANTA - Sept 15, 2005 - The Defence Procurement Agency (DPA) of the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence (MOD) has awarded FATS a contract valued at approximately $1.5 million. This contract includes more than 90 weapon simulators that FATS will begin delivering in April 2006.

FATS will convert live-fire General Purpose Machine Guns into simulated firearms that will interface with Dismounted Close Combat Trainers (DCCT) already deployed throughout the United Kingdom. The new contract also includes FATS marksmanship courseware.

FATS DCCT trains multiple soldiers at the same time using computer generated imaging and digital video technology. DCCT supports basic to advance marksmanship, use of force judgment, shoot/don't shoot decision-making and small unit tactical training.

"FATS long-standing relationship with the UK MOD illustrates our ability to meet the demands of our military customers," said Ron Mohling, FATS chief executive officer. "Since 1992, we have manufactured and delivered more than 300 virtual training systems to the UK MOD."

This order follows a recent award by the UK MOD earlier this month for 20 new DCCT systems. To date, FATS has deployed more than 5,200 virtual training systems to more than 50 countries worldwide.
