German forces receive Sagittarius Evolution
Thales has delivered the mobile version of the Sagittarius Evolution small arms trainer to the Special Forces Command Marine (KSK) of the German armed forces, the company announced on 16 March.
The training system is an enhanced version of the AGSHP shooting simulator training equipment used by German armed forces.
Following the delivery of the system to the KSK in Calw in early 2016, this is the second mobile version of the Thales simulation platform that is in use.
Apart from the KSM, the Sea Battalion will be also using the simulator for realistic training with the Wirkmittel 90mm. The system allows training using numerous ammunition types such as ASM, explosive, illumination, and smoke with the respective ignition modes that are typical for each kind and their effect in the target.
Up to two trainees can be trained simultaneously on the Sagittarius Evolution. The system is equipped with a wireless trainer station on a notebook computer and is installed in hardened rolling containers.
It can be set up for operations within 15 minutes by two people.
The system can be equipped on a needs-orientated basis for specialised forces with specific training scenarios, networking systems and motion platforms to be able to complete training in an even more realistic manner.
Stefan Wey, Head of the Training and Simulation Domain at Thales Deutschland, said: 'Wirkmittel 90 embodies a new generation of scalable, shoulder-mounted weapon systems at the German Federal armed forces.
'At our Sagittarius Evolution, the parameterised modes of actions of the individual types of ammunition can be trained in the simulation in an ideal and realistic way. Thus, the soldiers are optimally prepared for their deployment.'
