Meggitt Awarded $5.4 Million Training Systems Upgrade

April 05, 2010  | 

Meggitt Training Systems (MTS) has won a contract worth approximately $5.4 million from the US Army National Guard (ARNG) to continue upgrading its virtual small-arms training program. The ARNG will purchase new weapon simulators ranging from M9 pistols to MK19 grenade launchers. Deliveries begin March 2010.

Known as Combat Skills Marksmanship Trainers (CSMTs), the systems support the Guard's training mandate covering national and international missions. Increasing dependence on the deployment of Guard personnel makes simulation training a critical part of the Guard's overall preparation regimen. Small-unit leaders use the CSMT to rehearse mission planning.

While the range of simulated defensive and offensive situations covers security operations, fire and maneuver scenarios, and hostage and clearing operations in urban areas, the CSMT's embedded authoring software enables instructors to design new scenarios quickly to reflect emerging doctrinal and mission changes.

Rich Haddad, President of Meggitt Training Systems, commented: "Our longstanding relationship with the US Army National Guard and its continued investment in our weapon simulators is a testament to our ability to respond effectively to evolving training mandates."
