Andrea Czop, VP of strategy, sales and marketing at Meggitt, said: ‘The win validates our strategy of pairing our live-fire and virtual portfolio of products with a global presence supporting our customers in the Middle East and elsewhere.’

Stationary infantry targets, moving infantry targets, location of miss and hit systems, range control systems, special effects battlefield simulators, training information management systems and VR special warfare simulators will all be supplied to the facility by Meggitt.
