UK extends Saab DTES contract

23rd August 2017 - 09:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab has been awarded a three year contract extension by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to continue delivering the Deployable Tactical Engagement Simulation (DTES) managed service to the British Army, the company announced on 21 August. 

The DTES training system is used by the British Army to support overseas training exercises conducted by Light Role Battle Groups as part of their collective training progression. As part of the contract, the DTES system will undergo a significant refurbishment programme.

The high fidelity system simulates the effects of direct and indirect fire, tracks individual instrumented vehicles and troops and gathers training data in real time to inform the after action review process.

Under this $30.2 million contract, Saab will deliver the infrastructure, instrumentation and the support personnel as a package, which can then be deployed worldwide in weeks.
