Meggitt Training Systems has been contracted to supply simulated mortars to the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG).

The $1.49m contract requires the company to manufacture, install, maintain and operate 81mm simulated mortars at multiple locations in support of regular army infantry battalions and army reserve light batteries.

Australia will use the systems to train its mortar and command post operators, fire controllers and commanders with regards to tactics, techniques and procedures.

"Meggitt continues to enable the maximum level of training and readiness for the Australian Defence Force."

Meggitt Training Systems Australia managing director Chris Jordan said: “Meggitt continues to enable the maximum level of training and readiness for the Australian Defence Force.

“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.”

Deliveries to locations in Perth and Sydney will begin in May 2017, and continue through June the same year.
