Meggitt Training Systems wins ADF BlueFire EF88 contract

1st June 2020 - 15:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Meggitt Training Systems has won a $1.8 million contract with the Australian Defence Force (ADF) for 73 additional BlueFire EF88 wireless virtual assault weapons. Initial deliveries are expected in Q1 and Q2 of FY2021.

The weapons will be used on the ADFs Weapon Training Simulation Systems (WTSS) which are also provided by Meggitt.

Andrea Czop, VP strategy, sales and marketing at Meggitt Training Systems, said: ‘BlueFire wireless simulators provide the highest level of realism by maintaining form, fit and function of the original weapon… Like all our simulators, this version of the EF88 reinforces marksmanship training by providing sensor feedback on a variety of fundamental parameters.’

BlueFire weapon simulators provide a 3D marksmanship environment for more realistic and enhanced visuals whilst providing detailed trainee diagnostics for trainees.

The company also won a $2.6 million contract for BlueFire weapons from the USMC on 15 May with deliveries due to be made by December 2020.
