Meggitt Training Systems has announced that it will showcase its enhanced infantry target and other offerings at the Association of the US Army Annual Meeting & Exposition (AUSA).

The company will display its newest Stationary Infantry Target (SIT) with location of miss and hit (LOMAH).

AUSA is scheduled to be held from 14 to 16 October at the Walter E Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

The SIT is a portable remote-controlled pop-up target actuator that can support US Army type-E, F and 3-D targets and Nato target silhouettes.

The infantry targets are designed to adapt to different range environments, infrastructures and operational constraints.

LOMAH enables triangulation of sound waves for hit location. The system computes the location of the bullet and displays a graphical image.

The shooter can use the bullet’s measured location to improve marksmanship skills by using shot grouping and zeroing of weapons.

Meggitt Training Systems strategy, sales and marketing vice-president Andrea Czop said: “Meggitt’s LOMAH capability is truly industry-leading, offering superior accuracy while saving precious manpower downrange.

“Meanwhile, the FATS 100MIL virtual training system has generated global interest from allied nations looking to achieve the highest fidelity for marksmanship, judgmental and collective training.”

The company will also display the FATS 100MIL, which provides game engine 3D marksmanship and enhanced diagnostics.

The weapons training system allows for automatic coaching and collective training.

It can provide weapon-handling and shot-placement analytics, and coaching tools to enable trainees to work on correction during training.

Earlier this month, Meggitt Training Systems revealed that it received orders totalling $15.8m since May under the Army Targetry Systems III five-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract.
