General Dynamics Mobile Tactical Trainer

General Dynamics : 17 October, 2006  (New Product)
General Dynamics Mobile Tactical Trainer Receives Law Enforcement Award For Training Innovation
Fairfax, Va. - General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics

(NYSE: GD), was awarded Law Enforcement Technology's 2006 Innovation Award in the Training category. The awards recognize outstanding companies whose products have best responded to law enforcement challenges with creativity and innovation. General Dynamics received the award for its Mobile Tactical Trainer (MTT) - a mobile, reconfigurable facility that can be used by SWAT teams, law enforcement personnel, first responders and other agencies to prepare for urban tactical response operations. The award was given on Sunday, October 15, at the International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in Boston, Mass.

'With the ever-increasing threat of urban terrorism and additional emphasis on homeland security, nation's civilian law enforcement agencies require new, advanced tactical training devices to stay prepared,' said Fred Pickens, senior director of integrated instrumentation at General Dynamics Information Technology. 'We are pleased that Law Enforcement Technology has recognized the value of the Mobile Tactical Trainer to provide officers and special response teams with a flexible and cost-effective training solution.'

Essentially a mobile 'shoot house,' the MTT's integrated instrumentation provides controllable, interactive targets and realistic environmental conditions (such as smoke, sounds and smells of combat). The MTT can also record every movement for immediate playback during after-action review, which is critical for maximizing the benefits of training exercises. The MTT can be designed to replicate residential, multi-family, commercial or multi-story buildings, and supplies a unique environment for mission and task rehearsal exercises while supporting mandated in-service training requirements.
