ANN ARBOR, Mich., May 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Arotech Corporation (Nasdaq GM: ARTX), a provider of quality defense and security products for the military, law enforcement and homeland security markets, announced today that its Training and Simulation Division recently received $3.5 million in new orders.
These orders, spanning all operating units, are highlighted by two particular awards. Nashville Metropolitan Transportation Authority purchased FAAC Incorporated's industry-leading MB-2000-V8 bus driving simulator. The MB-2000-V8 continues to be the proven solution, custom built for effective bus operator training. Realtime Technologies received an award from University of New South Wales for twelve networked research simulators to be installed at campus locations at both the University New South Wales and Sydney University. These research simulators are intended to be used to study inter-vehicle connectivity and future highway designs.
"It is encouraging to see continued customer support for our legacy product lines, such as our transit training applications, while at the same time our simulators are selected for use on leading edge research applications," said Kurt Flosky, Arotech Training and Simulation's Executive Vice President.
