Training systems for armoured combat vehicles

Saab has been awarded the first option year of a multi-year contract for the next generation of laser-based training systems for US Army’s armoured combat vehicles. The order value is $ 11.8 million.

The indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (ID/IQ) contract consists of this order and options that can be exercised over a time period of five years with a potential total order value of $ 90 million.

Saab’s solution was chosen after a rigorous and extensive competition for the next generation of Combat Vehicle live training system. This first year option is being exercised based on the successful completion of the development, testing and delivery of the Limited Rate Initial Production (LRIP) systems to the Army The Combat Vehicle Tactical Engagement Simulation System (CVTESS) is a soldier-friendly wireless live training system that is easily installed and maintained. CVTESS will provide a highly accurate laser based replication of the combat vehicles’ weapons which will be used initially on all variants of the M-1 Abram’s Tank and M-2 Bradley Fighting Vehicles.

Saab Defence and Security USA, Training and Simulation, based in Orlando, FL, has supported the US Armed Forces and Homeland Defence with instrumented range training systems and military training products for more than thirty years.

“This system will enhance the training realism for the mounted soldiers immediately as the Army makes the shift to Unified Land Operations while supporting the Army Force Generation Model (ARFORGEN) as troops return from current combat operations. Saab`s new generation of simulators are designed to connect seamlessly with the modern instrumented training sites”, says Lars Borgwing, President of Saab Defense and Security USA.
