Rheinmetall wins German Army training contracts

30th September 2016 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rheinmetall will modernise and expand technology at the German Army Combat Training Centre (GÜZ) under a series of contracts announced by the company on 29 September. The contracts are valued at €24 million.

The work will include expansion of GÜZ headquarters software to enable the execution and evaluation of training sequences in the site’s urban combat environment, and modernisation of the training area’s data communication system.

Rheinmetall’s Simulation and Training unit will also ready GÜZ to conduct training for military operations in urban terrain. The GÜZ headquarters cell will be equipped with new capabilities for directing and evaluating exercises in built-up areas. The upgrades will allow German forces to train in a specially created urban environment featuring multiple infrastructure elements of a large modern city.

The centre conducts training using laser transmitters and sensors rather than live rounds. Participants and systems are networked together to enable after-action briefings and evaluation, in which individual manoeuvre sequences are analysed and potential for improvement is pointed out. 

Rheinmetall’s work on the contracts will run through to 2020.
