Kuwait to install 100 live fire ranges
Kuwait, July 11, 2013
Kuwait has ordered more than 100 stationary and mobile live fire ranges and multiple sophisticated control units valued in excess of $4.5 million from US-based Meggitt Training Systems.
Equipment will be installed by the end of 2013, a statement said.
Meggitt Training Systems has already installed and commissioned a new live fire law enforcement range at Mubarrak Al Kabeer in Kuwait, the first new Police Governorates headquarters.
The Governorate plans ten identical installations across the country, including the Al Jahra tactical range.
Concurrently, Meggitt is completing the installation of the largest multiple range complex in Kuwait at the new Police Training College, bringing new levels of tactical realism into an urban area training setting.
The new Police Governorate Headquarters range features multiple lanes for greater training capacity and overall range efficiency. Moving targets are controlled wirelessly through a range operator, enabling training scenarios to be focused on an individual lane or set for a comprehensive group.
With systems already installed with the Kuwait Army, the National Guard and at Kuwait’s only commercial live firing complex, Meggitt Training Systems is the largest supplier of live fire ranges and small arms trainer simulators to Kuwait.
Ronald Vadas, president of Meggitt Training Systems, said: "It is a privilege to be the supplier of choice in Kuwait. This award increases Meggitt’s regional presence, furthers efficient operation and maintenance to the area, and underscores our commitment to support the professionalism of Kuwait’s Armed Forces and Security Services."
Meggitt Training Systems supports installations across the Middle East region from Abu Dhabi. Meggitt’s design of ranges and simulator systems aids training skill development for militaries and security organisations. – TradeArabia News Service
