Meggitt live-fire targetry
Meggitt Training Systems has been selected as one of five suppliers to provide equipment for live-fire training ranges at US Army installations worldwide in a fixed price contract worth up to $475 million over the next five years.
The “indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity” (IDIQ) contract for the US Army’s Targetry Systems programme is with TACOM, the US Army Contracting Command in Warren, Michigan—one of the Army's largest weapon systems research and development organisations.
Meggitt will manufacture and install stationary and moving infantry and armour target mechanisms and control systems and provide product support.
Contracts are open to competition among the winning bidders, which, with Meggitt Training Systems, number Lockheed Martin, Action Target, Strategic Systems and Saab Training.
Meggitt has already won initial contracts for installations at the Fort Stewart Modified Record Fire and Detroit Arsenal Test #5 ranges.
Ronald Vadas, President of Meggitt Training Systems, commented: “Our selection is testament to the strength of our 15-year relationship with the US Army and we look forward to continuing to respond to its evolving range development and modernisation requirements.”
