Published

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Aug. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — MILO Range Training
Systems, a unit of Arotech Corporation’s [NasdaqGM: ARTX] Training and Simulation
Division, announced that it has received new awards totaling $1.6M from the U.S. Pacific
Air Forces (PACAF). The orders procure MILO Range Theater 180 systems to train U.S.
Air Force Security Forces at locations within the Pacific region. The awards from Defenses
Logistics Agency, through ADS, Inc., are scheduled to be delivered prior to the end of
2018 and include extended product support through 2023.
MILO Range Theater 180 systems provide an immersive training environment with
enhanced field of view allowing trainees to practice proper tactics to respond to numerous
threats from multiple directions. U.S. Air Force Security Forces are responsible for missile
security, defending air bases around the globe, law enforcement on those bases, combat
arms, and handling military working dogs. All aspects of the Security Forces mission are
able to be trained using the MILO Range systems. PACAF is one of nine U.S. Air Force
major commands and the air component of U.S. Pacific Command. The command has
approximately 46,000 military and civilian personnel serving in nine strategic locations and
numerous smaller facilities, primarily in Hawaii, Alaska, Japan, Guam and the Republic of
Korea.

“We are very pleased the U.S. Pacific Air Forces has selected the MILO Range Theater
systems to maintain the readiness of their security forces. Once customers have a chance
to see the MILO Range systems and evaluate them vs. other offerings, the choice is
clear. Our training content is unmatched and our reliability and support capabilities
continue to lead the industry,” said Robert McCue, MILO Range General Manager. “It is a
tremendous honor knowing that the PACAF Security Forces will be using our system’s
extensive set of features to train their personnel, increase tactical proficiency, rejuvenate
the defender, and help fulfill their mission to protect those who protect our nation.”
