Rheinmetall to supply new Swiss Army simulator
Rheinmetall has received an order from the Swiss Federal Office for Defence Procurement to supply a new command simulator for Swiss Army training, the company announced on 12 March.
Under the contract, the company will also provide operational and maintenance support to the system throughout its service life and will establish a material excellence centre in order to facilitate the support.
The new command simulator will be located at the Swiss General Staff School in Kriens in Canton Lucerne. The solution integrates C2I and peripheral systems with the newly structured Osiris simulation system. Osiris makes inter-disciplinary models possible that enable training for all three branches - land, sea and air - of the military at tactical and operational levels.
The system can generate highly realistic leadership scenarios ranging from disaster relief to national defence and peacekeeping missions. The command simulator can be operated at various levels of Switzerland’s military, with highly automated control possible at levels ranging from individual entities to brigade level.
