Suwanee, GA – For the third year running, Meggitt Training Systems Inc. (MTSI) will sponsor the ILEETA (International Law Enforcement Educators and Trainers Association) Cup Shooting Competition held at the ILEETA International Training Conference and Expo in Wheeling, IL on April 21, 2009.  Instructors from around the world will come together to compete in this event and all funds raised from this program will be divided evenly between the ILEETA Scholarship Fund and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

The competition utilizes two of Meggitt’s leading training systems – the Road Range™ mobile live-fire range and Meggitt’s new portable virtual training system – making the competition the only international police shooting competition that uses both live-fire and virtual simulators.

The live-fire portion of the ILEETA Cup takes place in the Road Range™. This self-contained mobile firearms training facility provides all the features of an indoor range in a deployable environment (it is easily transported for use at dispersed sites or placed in a permanent location). The ballistically secure trailer is equipped with advanced ventilation systems, bullet traps and targetry to produce a three lane live-fire range.

The virtual portion of the ILEETA Cup utilizes Meggitt’s portable virtual training system. This compact law enforcement simulator offers fully-immersive, interactive video scenarios to enhance judgmental and marksmanship training. The simulator has received much acclaim for its user-friendly interface that reduces instructor training time as well as its portable design that weighs less than 55lbs. Officers can experience firsthand the system’s flexible firearms platform, which supports Meggitt’s BlueFire® wireless weapons and system controlled tethered and Dvorak (laser insert) firearms.

As the official sponsor of this event, Meggitt Training Systems supports ILEETA’s mission of saving lives through the development and delivery of high quality training aids. The event also honors those individuals who paid the ultimate price to protect their communities.

“The support and involvement of Meggitt Training Systems is essential to the success of this event” says Ed Nowicki, Executive Director.

The ILEETA Cup is evaluated by third-party certified judges and computer scoring on both portions of the competition. The winner is determined by adding up the total “hot factor” (total score divided by time). The goal is to be the faster shooter with the highest score on each round. The competition has an overall winner, but also has first through third place winners in three different age groups (21–34, 35–49 and 50+).
