Meggitt Secures GBP13 M UK MoD Small Arms Simulator Upgrade

Category: Training And Simulators

Meggitt, a leading international company specialising in high performance components and sub-systems for aerospace, defence and energy, is pleased to announce that its contract with the Ministry of Defence for the supply of its Dismounted Close Combat Trainer (DCCT) to the British Army has been amended.

This involves a GBP13 million modification and upgrade to the DCCT in which devices needed to support Future Integrated Soldier Technology (FIST) enhancements will be added.

FIST enhancements to 59 of the MoD's 154 DCCTs include three simulators: an underslung grenade launcher sight, a thermal sight and a commander's target locator, for which Meggitt will provide associated ballistics and round effects for SA80/UGL rifle simulators, modifying them to accommodate new thermal sights.

As allowed for under the original contract, the work will enhance the DCCT's capability in line with FIST requirements and complement associated live-fire training.

FIST integration will be supported by Meggitt's new FATS(r) M100 system architecture which is compatible with the wide range of devices and software packages needed to build on the DCCT's inherent capability.

Meggitt Defence Systems, Ashford, will co-ordinate equipment integration support logistics, using simulator components and new software designed and produced by its sub-contractor Meggitt Training Systems in Suwanee, Georgia, USA.

Ronald Vadas, President of Meggitt Training Systems commented: "The UK MoD is one of our most important customers for virtual and live fire training systems. It is a testament to the confidence our products and systems engender that we are able to continue to work with the UK MoD to meet their requirements."
