Meggitt Training Systems Installs First Wireless Targeting System In Georgia

August 04, 2010  | 

Meggitt Training Systems has joined a commercial range operator and local law enforcement officers in a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Sandy Springs Gun Club in Sandy Springs, Ga., where Meggitt installed its Next Generation Wireless Target (XWT) retrieval system.

The XWT is the shooting industry's first wireless, 360-degree turning target retrieval system, according to the company.

The XWT system eliminates the requirement to replace frayed cables and to continually adjust the tension of cables and pulleys found on traditional target retrievers. The XWT system is operated via wireless communication with a touch-screen controller. The Sandy Springs Gun Club installation is the first of its kind in the U.S., according to the company.

Local law enforcement officers will use the XWT target retrieval system, along with Meggitt's Next Generation Virtual Training System (XVT), for marksmanship qualification and judgmental training.

Meggitt-installed acoustic baffles and ballistic stalls provide additional safety for the users. Shooters at the range will be further protected by the use of Meggitt's GranTrap, which represents state of the art technology for bullet capture and lead containment.

"We are proud that law enforcement officers and recreational shooters will use the latest of our live-fire and virtual training systems," according to Rich Haddad, Meggitt's president. "We are committed to safety and training for law enforcement professionals and our commercial customers."

The NRA Headquarters Range recently installed a wireless target retrieval system from Targetworx after considering Meggitt and Action Target.

I found your wireless advancement (especially with touch pad computer software) innovative. As a Federal contractor in the wireless field

(Wireless Welding Technologies) I look forward to the increased electron spin technology that will enable quantum science a stronger foothold.
