Saab Training USA has signed a contract with the U.S. Marine Corps to produce and field a large number of ranges and facilities under their Range Target Systems (RTS) program. The contract has a ceiling price of approximately $39M USD, and Saab will receive orders during the next three years.
The ranges will provide live fire gunnery training for Marines in a train-as-you-fight environment using Saab’s well established target and range control product line and Improvised Explosive Device (IED) simulators. The scope of work includes constructing urban warfare buildings and shoot houses with realistic after action review capabilities and providing logistic support for large number of fielded systems.
Saab is currently delivering its Instrumented Tactical Engagement Simulation System (I-TESS) to the same Marine Corps installations across the continental United States and overseas in Hawaii and Japan.
“We are delighted to have received this important RTS order, which increases Saab’s product base with the U.S. Army and Marine Corps to whom we have been supplying range equipment since 1980,” says Lars Borgwing, President, Saab Training USA.
