Meggitt Wins Contract for Additional Mortar Simulators

Meggitt Training Systems recently announced an $1.49 million (USD) contract from the Australian Defence Force’s Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group. Under terms of the contract, Meggitt will manufacture, install, maintain and operate additional 81 mm simulated mortars at multiple locations in support of Regular Army Infantry Battalions and Army Reserve Light Batteries.

“Meggitt continues to enable the maximum level of training and readiness for the Australian Defence Force,” said Chris Jordan, managing director, Meggitt Training Systems Australia. “For example, we have installed, maintained and operated the Weapon Training Simulation Systems in Australia since 1999 and most recently installed Meggitt 81mm mortar simulators at four sites during 2016.”
