Meggitt has received a modification contract from the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) for the upgrade of the British Army’s dismounted close combat trainer (DCCT).

The £13m contract extension involves future integrated soldier technology (FIST) enhancements to 59 DCCT systems, including three simulators.

The simulators include an underslung grenade launcher sight, a thermal sight and a commander’s target locator.

Meggitt will provide associated ballistics and round effects for SA80/UGL rifle simulators thereby helping them to accommodate new thermal sights.

The DCCT simulators support basic to advanced marksmanship and small unit tactical training using computer-generated imaging and digital video technology.

The system is also in use by the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and several Middle Eastern nations’ armed forces.
