Finland to order SAITS

18th February 2019 - 11:00 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Finnish Defence Forces Logistics Command has received authorisation from the Finnish MoD for the purchase of small arms indoor training simulators (SAITS) from Saab, the MoD announced on 13 February.

The three-year procurement contract worth €9 million ($10.1 million) also includes options for further procurement. It also includes the procurement of equipment, software licences and maintenance.

Finland's forces are planning to use SAITS to provide firearm training for conscripts and reservists in 2019, with the aim to ensure that the new learning environment will be in full training use in 2021.

The simulator comprises weapon replicas, computers and a classroom with a video projector. It will allow the MoD to train troops in virtual scenarios in an effective and safe environment.

The SAITS procurement is part of the Training 2020 Programme.
