Sweden Orders Simulators For Armed Forces Training


Strict Standards: Only variables should be passed by reference in /home/defensef/public_html/components/com_zone/handleHTML.php on line 623
Saab
: 21 December, 2010  (Application Story)
The Swedish material administration has placed an order on Saab for urban warfare training system simulators for delivery in 2011
Defence and security company Saab has received two new orders from FMV (the Swedish Defence Material Administration) for army training systems. The orders are for a new urban warfare training system and for enhancing the existing simulators of the Swedish Armed Forces. The orders amounts to MSEK 85 and 46 respectively.

For several years, Saab has been the main supplier of laser simulator systems for troops and vehicles to FMV. The new order entails that Saab also will deliver a realistic urban warfare training system. The system includes simulation of realistic effects in urban areas as well as an evaluation system (After Action Review) with integrated video and radio for follow-up and evaluation of performed actions and exercises. This will be a mobile system enabling individuals as well as military units to train in urban environments. The delivery time agreed upon is 22 months for this order.

“We have been entrusted with the task of equip a new training facility for urban warfare training. The system that we will deliver will train individual soldiers and military units during military exercises. We are proud to provide the Swedish armed forces the opportunity to train with one of the world's best system for urban warfare training”, says Henrik Höjer, head of Training & Simulation within Saab’s Security and Defence Solutions business area.

The other order, to be delivered in 2011, is an additional order for the current Swedish simulator system. The order includes technology for visual effects, updates of all firing vehicle platforms as well as simulators for heavy machine guns and a new wireless target system.
