Rheinmetall has won a contract to set up an urban warfare “training city’ from a customer of Middle East-North Africa (MENA) region.
The complete ‘training city’ site, which will be constructed in the customer country, will have technical features that make it the advanced training centre for preparing soldiers and security personnel for urban operations. The ultramodern facility enables the troops to practise combat operations in urban terrain.
Rheinmetall will equip urban infrastructure constructed by the customer with a complete array of simulation technology, creating a high-tech training environment. Core elements include a high-performance wireless data and position locating system as well as a control and evaluation centre, to include presentation systems for exercise briefings.
Advanced Laser Engagement System, designed to take into account the special requirements of urban operations and house-to-house fighting, make it possible to bring a full range of participants into the exercise loop, including their weapons and vehicles. For example, every combat vehicle involved in the exercise is fitted with laser receivers that also enable vehicles to be engaged from above.
From the control and evaluation centre, the status and position of all exercise participants can be monitored in real time, even when they are inside buildings. In addition, it is possible to simulate the impact of indirect fire on building interiors, e.g. from artillery and mortars.
In order to enable realistic training for operations in a complex urban setting, a new ‘city’ was constructed in the customer country precisely for this purpose, consisting of more than 150 buildings.
