The FATMAN is a 75 pound, two person portable, air-cooled, oxygen / propane operated, control panel-contained, upright blast simulator that has the ability to reach 110-140 decibels, when fired. The simulator has a 30 second safe arm function when power is applied and the unit is turned on. The advantage of this simulator is that it has the ability to replicate large detonations, such as larger roadside IEDs, artillery fire, and mortar fire, without the risk of fragmentation or over pressurization.

This cost effective penalty has both military and civilian applications, creating realism in any training evolution. The black subdued finish and sleek rugged design of the FATMAN enhances its concealment against enemy observation and cover from enemy fire.The construction of the all-inclusive housing has given the simulator the ability to facilitate concealment while encasing the control box, and battery housing.
