SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With two European facilities to serve shooting range customers across the continent, Meggitt Training Systems will feature the latest live-fire products March 9-12 at IWA Outdoor Classics 2018 in Nuremberg, Germany.
A leader in design, equipment and installation for law enforcement, defense and commercial ranges, Meggitt Training Systems has over 90 years of live-fire experience. The company has fielded more than 13,000 range systems worldwide, including over 75,000 live-fire target systems on 122 military bases.
“Meggitt’s British and Dutch facilities in Ashford and Waardenburg help us identify and meet Europe’s unique live-fire training requirements,” said Mark Mears, managing director for Meggitt Training Systems Ltd. “I encourage IWA Outdoor Classics attendees to learn how we can help them save time and money throughout the design and build phases of their shooting range projects.”
Meggitt’s display of products at IWA will include:
- The XWT ProImage projected target system revolutionizes image and video targets for indoor shooting ranges. The system is a compact video projector and camera that attaches to Meggitt’s XWT target carrier. Wirelessly connected to a 10” lane control unit mounted behind the firing line, the XWT ProImage projects user-uploaded digital videos and images onto white paper or cardboard targets. The onboard camera provides a constant close-up view of the target for instantaneous feedback. The XWT ProImage docks and charges with the XWT and includes easily replaceable batteries for nonstop run time.
- The classic CEB target retrieval system offers the stability of a track system and the simplicity of a non-turning carrier in an economical design. This fixed-speed, electrically powered trolley wire target system is operated manually via a forward-stop-return control switch located at the firing line.
- Multi-Function Stationary Infantry Target offers a fixed target head configuration that can respond to hits or a pre-programmed scenario, ensuring that the trainees do not anticipate target actions. This provides a realistic environment for urban operations and specialized training. The system is operated through radio frequency, hardwire or Ethernet controls that enable great flexibility in range design and usage.
- The GranTrap™ granulated rubber bullet trap utilizes soft media to stop incoming rounds and capture them predominately intact. This minimizes airborne lead dust, averts back-splatter and ricochet, and minimizes impact noise. The result is a cleaner and safer environment for shooting ranges, and maximizes bullet recovery and recycling processes.
