The LVS2 simulation training system - developed by NIOA, General Dynamics and Saab Australia - provides an advanced, virtual reality training solution. It is compact, easily transportable and deployable.
NIOA is delivering the MK47 40mm automatic lightweight grenade launcher equipped with LVS2 sighting system under the LAND 40 Phase 2 project. The advanced LVS2 provides a new level of capability for light weapon sighting systems with integrated colour video and thermal imaging.
