Saab has received an order from the General Tadeusz Kosciuszko Military University of Land Forces (AWL) in Poland to expand its GAMER laser-based training capability (LSS).
With the new system – the Laser Tactical Simulator (LTS), AWL is going to grow the number of participants in exercises and functionalities of their current GAMER live training system. The significant new functionality is the addition of the BT46 ballistic simulator that replicates weapon and ammunition parameters, time of flight, velocity, trajectory and impact point of a simulated projectile.
In the course of a competitive procurement procedure, Saab had to demonstrate key technologies and capabilities to prove maturity of the offered solution, for example laser transmitter accuracy and instrumentation features according to AWL’s test specification.
“The tests Saab underwent during the AWL procurement process follow the global trend of purchasing organizations implementing mandatory capability demonstrations for suppliers. Saab has observed over time such tests always benefit the purchasing organization in evaluating existing systems, mitigating risks and identifying technologies and solutions that would meet their training requirements best”, says Åsa Thegström, head of Training & Simulation at Saab´s business area Dynamics.
AWL acquired the first GAMER system in 2016 and has successfully used it to train future officers of Land Forces and Territorial Defense Forces. Both the existing LSS and the new LST systems offer AWL full interoperability with key training partners of Poland in NATO using a number of laser and radio interfaces.
