"We will continue to support our delivered training systems, which through continued upgrades in close co-operation between Saab and the UK Army, meet the customers need of high performance training. The implementation of OSAG 2.0 is a strategic decision, which will make it easier for the British Army to train together with other nations," says Henrik Hojer, general manager Training & Simulation at Saab.

The extended Contract also includes the implementation of OSAG 2.0, a new international standard for optical laser codes, that will enable the British Army to be interoperable with other nation's laser based Tactical Engagement Simulator Systems during joint exercises around the world.
