ADF selects Meggitt for weapon training simulation system
Meggitt Training Systems (MTS) has announced that it has been awarded a contract by the Australian Defence Force (ADF) for delivery of Weapon Training Simulation Systems (WTSS) at four purpose-built Australian Army facilities. Meggitt made the announcement in a 23 March 2012 company statement.
According to the company, this order brings the total number of WTSS facilities to 25, further reinforcing the long-term relationship between MTS and the ADF.
Meggitt’s WTSS is a complete small arms training environment that includes individual training in marksmanship and weapons handling. It is configured for the future adoption of mortar simulators for crew and collective training missions with an integrated capability supporting call for fire and indirect fire tasks.
WTSS includes MTS’ new FATS M100 system architecture designed to deliver new levels of realism in virtual firearms training. The system also enables training developers to use and integrate the latest graphics platforms to best effect.
