Defence and security company Saab has received an order for multi-national training from the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration (FMV). The order value is MSEK 103 and deliveries will take place during 2017.
The order includes a new radio system that increases the Swedish Armed Forces’ capabilities in training and simulation. The system provides the ability to conduct larger military manoeuvres and interoperate with several armies from other nations, such as the other Nordic countries and most NATO nations in Europe, as well as with the US Army in Europe.
The radio system transfers data to and from each individual soldier and vehicle to a training command centre where things such as positions and status for each simulator system are summarized for evaluation. The delivery includes mobile base stations and radio systems for vehicles and soldiers.
“We have a long tradition of deliveries to Sweden in training and simulation. The radio system is an important element in conducting larger manoeuvres and getting maximum training value,” says Åsa Thegström, head of business unit Training & Simulation within Saab business area Dynamics.
