ANN ARBOR (WWJ) — Arotech Corp. (Nasdaq: ARTX) announced that its Training and Simulation Division’s MILO force options business unit was awarded a firm fixed-price contract to supply award-winning MILO Range simulators for use by the Saudi Arabian Defense Forces.
The deal came through Arotech’s international partner channels.
The contract includes seven custom designed virtual weapons training simulators, to be installed at regional readiness centers across Saudi Arabia. Each of the systems is a multi-screen 24 lane MILO based application providing a virtual firing range for pistol and rifle marksmanship training.
