LVS2 simulation training system accepted
The fire control simulation training system for the Australian Defence Force's (ADF's) Lightweight Video Sight (LVS2) system has completed site acceptance testing, Nioa announced on 10 February.
Nioa was selected in 2015 to deliver the MK47 40mm automatic lightweight grenade launcher to the ADF fitted with a Raytheon AN/PVG-1 Lightweight Video Sight (LVS2) sighting system for the Land 40 Phase 2 project.
The training system - developed by Nioa, General Dynamics and Saab Australia - provides an advanced, virtual reality training solution. According to Nioa, site acceptance testing confirmed that the system successfully met all key objectives and ADF requirements.
The advanced LVS2 provides a new level of capability for light weapon sighting systems with integrated colour video and thermal imaging.
