Do you want to work with the world-leading supplier of simulated military training? Are you looking for international travels and great variety in everyday work-life? Join the expanding Saab AB, Training & Simulation´s Application department.

Your role

The Exercise Control system (Excon) is a SAAB developed system that runs on Windows Computers and Andriod tablets. The main purpose of the system is to monitor and record every player event during a military exercise. Typical players can be tanks, troop carrying vehicles, anti-tank weapons and soldiers. The system can also be used by the exercise leaders to plant artificial mine fields, simulate mortar and artillery fire in order to make the exercise even more realistic.

When the military exercise is completed, the recordings made by the Excon system is used during an After Action Review (AAR) to analyse and evaluate the performance of each player in order to improve for the next exercise.
