Lithuania, SAAB sign RBS70 simulators contract

15th December 2016 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab will supply the Lithuanian armed forces with RBS 70 simulators as part of an order announced on 13 December.

The company will supply simulators, training services and spare parts for the RBS 70 short-range, ground-based air defence missile systems used by the Lithuanian armed forces since 2004. Saab will work with the Lithuanian-based Baltic Institute of Advanced Technology (BPTI) on the integration of customised 3D-maps into the RBS 70 simulators in order to visualise real operational environments.

The PC-based simulator provides training for operators on engaging difficult targets. It includes a number of built-in flight paths, with the instructor able to create any aerial threat situation with various kinds of targets. 

With the 3D maps to be added, personnel can practice deployment and engagement of targets in an exact ‘virtual’ replication of the real world environment that they operate in.

Deliveries will take place during 2018.
