A major defence contract has been won by a Lavington company.

A Border company will supply the Defence with a mobile weapons training simulator to help Australian sailors and soldiers maintain their weapons skills wherever they are in the world.

InVeris Training Solutions Pty Ltd in Albury is delivering and supporting a fully digitised Mobile Weapons Training Simulation System (MWTSS).

It will now help hone the skills of those using the Australian-made EF-88 assault rifle and a range of other weapon systems operated by Australian Defence personnel.

The $4.1 million contract would deliver 14 simulators by July 2021.

The Australian Army will receive nine of the simulation systems, of which seven will support Army Reserve units throughout regional and remote Australia.

The other two will support deployable units such as the Amphibious Ready Group and 2/30th Training Group in Butterworth, Malaysia.

Member for Farrer, the Hon Sussan Ley MP, said InVeris Training Solutions has an outstanding track record in designing and developing live fire and weapons simulation training systems for military, law-enforcement and commercial range customers since the late 1990s.

“The company employs over 50 staff and right now boosting or retaining jobs in the border region is absolutely vital,” Ms Ley said.

“This new contract is another real vote of confidence for our local defence industries."
