Meggitt Training Systems was awarded the first contract in 2014. Its value was USD99 million and was an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity one for a five-year period. The overall programme covers the procurement of 1,000-plus new and upgraded systems, and simulated weapons for the US Army facilities worldwide.

The new systems will train new and experienced soldiers in marksmanship, collective CGI scenarios and judgmental video scenarios. Their design is based on a scalable architecture to allow easy integration of Meggitt and third-party training modules. It will also accommodate evolutions in fidelity and graphic complexity for greater realism. Meggitt’s current modules cover enhanced 3D marksmanship and a coaching application on a wireless tablet enabling trainers to change scenarios quickly within a single training session.
