Family of Egress Trainers


Family of Egress Trainers


The Family of Egress Trainers (FE1) consists of Underwater Egress Training (UET) and Dry Rollover Egress Training (DRET) devices. These systems will instruct Marines on vehicle rollover issues and proper egress techniques.

UET devices consist of three variants:
  • The Modular Amphibious Egress Trainer (MAET) is an underwater escape trainer that represents specific aircraft, amphibious vehicles, cockpits and cabin emergency escape exits. The system replicates the cabin of a CH-53 and MV-22.
  • The Submerged Vehicle Egress Trainer (SVEI) is a UET that has the same modular core and rotational capabilities as the MAET, but dedicated for the High Mobility Multi-Purpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV) & the Assault Amphibious Vehicle (AAV).
  • The Shallow Water Egress Trainer (SWEI) is a single-seat emergency egress trainer. This is used to introduce Marines to water submersion and emergency breathing devices.
DRET devices consist of two variants:
  • HMMWV Egress Assistance Trainer (HEAT) instructs Marines how lo egress a vehicle after a rollover and how to wear proper safety restraints. This device is able to roll 360 degrees.
  • MRAP Egress Trainer- (MET) is designed to train Marines how to egress from a CAT I, CAT II and CAT III MRAP vehicle. This vehicle also allow the Marines the opportunity to experience vehicle rollovers in a controlled environment.
Benefit of utilizing the UET:
  • Provide Marines with the knowledge, skills and abilities to safely deploy. Also highlights limitations and potential hazards associated with the use of emergency breathing system.
  • Trains breathing techniques.
  • Trains coping with physical and psychological stress experienced in an underwater egress situation.
Training Requirement for the UET:
  • Medical Screening Forms (available Range Management Support System).
  • Current Swim Qualifications.
Benefits of utilizing the DRET:
  • Provides Marines the necessary training to survive a rollover and egress properly.
  • Builds muscle memory through drills.
