Saab to upgrade German Army vehicle simulators

10th January 2018 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Saab has received a $13 million order from the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information Technology and In-Service Support to upgrade a number of the German Army’s vehicle simulators, the company announced on 9 January.

For the upgrade programme, Saab will provide new software and hardware for German Army vehicles and tanks operating the laser simulator BT 46, including Leopard, Fennek, Marder and Wiesel. The new standard for laser codes, SISO, will be implemented in the upgrade to ensure the German Army is interoperable with other European countries.

Åsa Thegström, head of training and simulation unit at Saab´s business area dynamics, said: ‘An effect of the security situation in Europe is that more and more of our customers emphasise that interoperability is extremely important in order to carry out multinational exercises of high quality.

'We have a long and very good cooperation with the German customer and this order strengthens our relationship and Saab's presence in Germany.’
