Saab to supply TESS to New Zealand

23rd August 2016 - 07:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab has received an order from the New Zealand army for a high fidelity Tactical Engagement Simulation System (TESS), the company announced on 22 August.

This is the first order in the recently-signed five-year agreement between the army and Saab. The initial order will provide an off-the-shelf, laser-based tactical engagement training system aimed at improving the army's ability to conduct and analyse the outcomes of force-on-force exercises. According to Saab, the capability meets the current requirements of the army and provides capacity for long-term system growth.

Åsa Thegström, head of business unit training and simulation within the Dynamics business area of Saab, said: 'With this agreement and order for training systems, the New Zealand army will have a market-leading live training system that will improve their training capability.

'We deliver a modern system that enables a wide range of training scenarios and the highest realism. This order further strengthens our market position within this field.'
