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.
CAE has won a $200 million United States Air Force (USAF) contract to provide comprehensive C-130H aircrew training services. The eight-year contract, awarded as a three-month transition effective October 1, 2018 with a one-year base period and seven additional option periods, the company said in a statement Wednesday
Leonardo today opened a training facility in Lincoln, UK to educate defence technical specialists within the Cyber and Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA) domain. An example of the type of training imparted at the Academy is to train UK MoD personnel to protect platforms against the high-tech threat radar systems that they may face in operational theatres such as Syria, a Leonardo press release said
Saab has developed a new app called WE:Go for soldiers using the firms GAMER instrumented training system. Currently, most training after-action reviews present the exercise results to the entire group, platoon or company
