Saab has signed a three year contract extension estimated SEK 210 million with the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defence (MoD) for the provision of Tactical Engagement Simulation (TES) as a fully managed service.
Saab’s versatile Deployable TES (DTES) system is used by the British Army to support overseas training exercises conducted by Light Role Battle Groups as part of their Collective Training progression.
“Since 2009, our technical and exercise training support staff have effectively been embedded within the British Army, supporting up to seven exercises per year. Saab sees this contract extension as recognition of the strong working relationship we have developed with the British Army and the MoD,” says Åsa Thegström, head of business unit Training & Simulation, at Saab business area Dynamics.
The proven, high fidelity system provides the ability to simulate the effects of direct and indirect fire, track individual instrumented troops and vehicles and gather training data in real time to inform the After Action Review process. This in turn allows for objective assessment and validation of military units prior to going on operations.
The managed service model means that Saab delivers the infrastructure, instrumentation and the support personnel as a package, which can then be deployed worldwide in a matter of weeks. DTES is also interoperable with Saab’s other TES systems as delivered to the British Army and other partner nations.
