Introduction to Current Programs
MES provides innovative solutions to meet the education, technology, and training needs of military and commercial customers. Our company averages over 500 employees, operating in CONUS and OCONUS locations. We attribute our longevity and success to MES’s commitment to quality management and customer satisfaction, which has resulted in numerous outstanding performance awards and recognition from our clients and their customers. Take a look at our salient current programs, listed below:
CLS tasks include trainer operations and maintenance services of highly complex dome based training devices, systems, subsystems, and components. Here’s MES’ staff members provide instructional assistance for the program. MES JTAC (Joint Terminal Attack Controller)-certified CLS personnel operate and maintain Marine Corps SAVTs as part of the Programs of Instruction (POI) on JTAC and Joint Fires Observer (JFO) procedures. The CLS personnel develop simulation mission scenarios in compliance with the JTAC and JFO POI. They have supported and conducted in-depth and intense training and have the knowledge and experience in Close Air Support (CAS), Call For Fire (CFF), Naval Surface Fire Support (NSFS) and AC-130 fire support missions. MES is also performing a Limited Technical Refresh at SAVT sites and the SAVT test berth located at Naval Air Warfare Training Systems Division (NAWCTSD) Orlando, Florida. The team’s mission is to replacement of obsolete equipment or devices reaching the end of service life and or replacement spares no longer available or affordable.
The training system we created consists of a multi-channel Image Generators (see KORE Image Generator), Computer Generated Forces, Air and Ground Intelligent Agents to provide a realistic virtual environment for the students, and after action review capability. Due to the complexity of the mission goals and the risk associated with combat training, MES’ engineers designed and established safety protocols tailored to this mission.
Training Device/Equipment: Missile Launch Procedures and Maintenance Trainers
The Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, Hill AFB has awarded MES a $3.7M, 20 month contract to design, develop, fabricate, test and deliver 40 panels as a part of 32 power panel modification kits. The kits will be eventually installed into Missile Procedures Trainers (MPTs), Launch Facility Trainers (LFTs), and Power and Environmental Control System Trainers (P&ECST) at four Air Force Bases. MES is currently under contract to install three MPT kits with contract options to install the remaining 29 MPT, LFT, and P&ECST kits. The power panel modification kits will be installed in the existing trainers to match the recent upgrades in the actual weapons systems.
Effort Included: Engineering, Manufacturing, Logistics and Field Services
Training Device/Equipment: Classroom Trainers and Immersive Modules
MES is a major subcontractor to Nova Technologies who is developing the CFFT III family of training systems. MES’ responsibilities include designing and manufacturing the Simulated Military Equipment (SMEs), assembling the CFFT hardware, developing the logistics documentation and production drawings, installing the training devices in the field, performing on-site training, and providing Interim Contractor Support (ICS).
The CFFT III systems are the U.S. Army’s choice for training the proper procedures to call Indirect Fire support including artillery support and mortar support, Naval Surface Fire Support, and Type I, II and III terminal attack controls for Close Air Support (CAS). This effort will procure CFFT III systems which will expand the training capabilities to include Forward Observers (FO), Joint Fires Observers (JFO), and Joint Close Air Support (JCAS).

developed and proven image generation technology with the end user in mind. A great benefi t of KORE IG is the ease of installation
and maintenance – simply plug it into an existing network and begin working almost immediately, with little to no confi guration.
To ensure only the required resources are used to run a stable and fast IG, MES conducted careful analysis of all components
of the IG software, hardware, operating system, and interfaces. Finally, KORE IG was designed by MES as an Optimal Integrated
Architecture that draws images very fast, every time, and all the time.
To eliminate risk, and ensure success, KORE IG Turnkey Solutions are tailored to each project’s specifi cations and requirements.
