Since December 2012, Meggitt Training Systems (MTS) has been awarded Delivery Orders worth US $7.9M to support the US Army's Targetry Systems program with TACOM, the US Army Contracting Command in Warren, Michigan -- one of the Army's largest weapon systems research and development organizations. The program is part of an effort to provide equipment for live-fire training ranges at US Army installations worldwide.

Under these Delivery Orders, MTS will deliver some 1100 infantry and armor units, both stationary and mobile. Equipment will be delivered across 10 military installations.

Delivery Orders are open to competition amongst Meggitt Training Systems, Lockheed Martin, Action Target, Strategic Systems and Saab Training.

Ronald Vadas, President of Meggitt Training Systems, commented: "Award of these Delivery Orders is a further testament to the strength of our 16-year relationship with the US Army and we look forward to continuing to respond to its evolving range development and modernization requirements."
