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

“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.”

The 81mm simulated mortars will be used to train and test mortar men, command post operators, fire controllers and commanders in their duties with regard to mortar operations, tactics, techniques and procedures.

Deliveries connected to this contract will take place at Darwin, Northern Territory (also home to the US Marine Corps’ Rotational Force-Darwin); Perth, Western Australia; and Sydney, NSW.

They are expected to occur from May to June 2017 with installation to follow shortly thereafter.
