Meggitt Training Systems to Highlight New Target Equipment at NRA Range Development Conference

SUWANEE, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Meggitt Training Systems builds on its nine decades of shooting range
experience at this year’s NRA Range Development Conference in Denver,
Co., Oct. 6-8. The event is geared toward first-time range owners, with
Meggitt highlighting two new target systems, plus its comprehensive gun
range design, equipage and installation capabilities.

“Planning a shooting range facility is a major undertaking and should be
done early to avoid problems later,” said Jonathan Read, director, live
fire, Meggitt Training Systems. “Meggitt’s experts provide turnkey
solutions from the research and bid process through range design,
construction and long-term maintenance. In addition, we offer the most
reliable and innovative equipment in the industry, including our new XWT
ProImageTM and XWT GEN4 products.”

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 XWT GEN4 wireless target carrier builds on the industry’s first
wireless, 360º turning system. The XWT GEN4 uses a lithium ion battery
with a positive locking connection and ergonomic placement. This
technology provides a 50% increase in battery watt hours. The new
docking system improves contact design for faster, more reliable
charging; that means more time using the XWT GEN4 and less time charging
it. Programmable distraction lighting now integrates red, blue and white
LEDs with four times the brightness of previous models. The chassis
features a new side cover design for wheel overhead protection and
prevention of brass drivetrain damage. Anti-static wheels eliminate
grounding tinsel and reduce electrostatic discharge.
