RUAG delivers C-IED training kits to Germany

5th September 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


RUAG has made the delivery of around 30 counter-improvised explosive device (C-IED) training kits to the German armed forces, the company announced on 31 August. The kits will be used for training at the German army’s combat training centre (GÜZ) from October.

The kits allow training in both outdoor and indoor environments. They include laser radios and pyrotechnics to simulate blasts, with the components interacting with harnesses worn by the soldiers to record data for after action review.

The delivery also includes systems that can be worn by the soldiers directly on the body to simulate suicide attacks. These kits enable soldiers to learn how various IEDs work and how to act in the event of an IED being triggered.

RUAG will also assist the German armed forces in exercises to improve training effectiveness and fully utilise the technological capabilities of the components starting in October 2016.

The training kits are designed to teach personnel how to identify IEDs and the correct response for providing assistance after detonation. Blast and smoke effects are incorporated.
