The Defense Procurement Agency of the United Kingdom Ministry of Defense has awarded Firearms Training Systems (FATS) a contract valued at approximately $3 million for Javelin anti-armor missile simulated training systems.
Delivery of the newest order will begin in 2006.
FATS will integrate Javelin anti-armor training simulators into already existing Dismounted Close Combat Trainers developed by FATS. The virtual training systems will allow military forces to train collectively with Javelin in a combined-arms environment, the company said.
“FATS has built a long-standing relationship with the United Kingdom MOD,” said FATS chief executive officer Ron Mohling. “This contract illustrates our successful track record of providing advanced solutions for the British military forces. FATS is committed to supporting its military customers around the world.”
FATS has deployed more than 5,200 simulators to military, law enforcement and security forces worldwide.
