Saudi Arabia defence force selects MILO simulators

18th December 2013 - 16:11 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Arotech's training and simulation division will supply its MILO Range simulators to the Saudi Arabian defence forces under a new contract announced on 18 December. The firm fixed-price contract is valued at $2.9 million.

Under the agreement, Arotech will provide seven custom designed virtual weapons training simulators, to be installed at regional readiness centres across Saudi Arabia. Each of the seven systems is a multi-screen 24 lane MILO based application providing a virtual firing range for pistol and rifle marksmanship training.

Robert McCue, general manager for the MILO Range business unit, Arotech, said: ‘We are extremely pleased to be selected to provide our innovative MILO Range virtual simulators to our allies in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. This competitive award validates our leadership role in the dual-purpose simulator market to provide multi-lane and multi-screen virtual firing range solutions on top of the interactive video and CGI force option training capabilities that MILO Range systems are known for.’

Kurt Flosky, executive vice president, Arotech's training and simulation division, added: ‘Strategic investment in internal product development of MILO Range's core capabilities and its configurable multi-screen applications have enabled us to successfully compete and win in a growing international market. Our MILO Range solution was well positioned to satisfy the stringent Saudi Arabian requirements and has continually proven itself to be the best solution for a vast array of global training applications.’

Arotech will begin deliveries under the contract in early 2014, and will continue in phases through Q3 2014 until all systems are installed and on-site training is complete.
