Meggitt Lands USD$31.7 Million Contract with USMC
On January 13, 2015, the subsidiary of the British aerospace engineering company Meggitt, Meggitt Training Systems, was awarded a USD$31.7 million contract from the United States Marine Corps System Command Program Manager for Training Systems. This contract calls for Meggitt Training Systems to cultivate and provide an innovative training system called the Indoor Simulated Marksmanship Trainers (ISMT). This new system will give the US Marine Corps a lifelike, state-of-the-art virtual small arms training for marksmanship, cooperative and judgmental situations. The USD$31.7 million award puts into agreement a five-year Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract which, in addition to the system and weapon simulator, will provide the installation and support of more than 670 systems at domestic and worldwide US Marine Corps sites.
Although the new ISMT systems meet all of the strict current training requirements of the US Marine Corps, Meggitt Training Systems has designed the system to include their FATS® M100 flexible architecture which will allow for future updates in order to meet ever changing training conditions. First deliveries of the ISMT system are expected at the end of 2015.
