Integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training products & services
Meggitt Training Systems, a leading provider of integrated live-fire and virtual weapons training products and services for armed forces and law enforcement, is participating at DSEI 2017 through the Georgia Department of Economic Development in stand N5-186.
“Today’s threats necessitate maximum realism, despite stretched budgets, and that is what Meggitt provides to government and commercial customers globally,” said Mark Mears, Managing Director at Meggitt Training Systems, Ltd. “Although proudly based in Georgia, Meggitt Training Systems is part of Meggitt PLC, a UK-headquartered corporation. As such, we particularly look forward to engaging with current and prospective customers at DSEI, the UK’s largest defence and security trade show.”
On the virtual side of the business, Meggitt Training Systems highlights the FATS 100MIL small arms training system. Leveraging key features and Program of Record (POR) certification from the US Army Engagement Skills Trainer (EST II) and the USMC Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainers (ISMT), and now undergoing a three-month NATO product demonstration, the FATS 100MIL delivers a significant expansion in virtual small-arms training capability and is ideally positioned for direct and foreign military sales. It also builds on Meggitt’s heritage delivering the FATS Dismounted Close Combat Trainer (DCCT), the UK MoD’s primary small-arms training system. More than 150 FATS DCCT systems have been delivered to the MOD since 2003.
Meggitt’s live-fire offerings include infantry and armour targets, outdoor and indoor range solutions, target retrieval and training systems, shooting stalls, bullet traps, range control systems, as well as range planning and design.
Meggitt employs more than 400 people at its headquarters in Suwanee, GA/USA, plus others in Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East. Its training solutions have been chosen as PORs by the US Army and USMC, as well as sold to military forces in Canada, UK, Australia and other allies. Meggitt not only facilitates training for the world’s best soldiers, it also provides virtual and live-fire solutions for law enforcement agencies in more than 100 countries.
