Saab to provide ranges for US Marine Corps

Saab Training, a developer of training systems for the US Military, has signed a $39m (£24m) contract with the US Marine Corps to produce and field a number of ranges and facilities under its Range Target Systems programme over the next three years.

The ranges will provide live-fire gunnery training for Marines in a train-as-you-fight environment using Saab’s 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 logistics support for large number of fielded systems.
