Do you want to work with the world-leading supplier of simulated military training? Are you looking for an interesting development environment 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 to analyse and evaluate the performance of each player in order to improve for the next exercise.

The main task for the Facility Application Engineer is to design the externals and internals of different kinds of shelters and communication nodes that the customer needs on the exercise field to perform an AAR.

A few examples of shelters and communication nodes:

  • Countainers for the technical equipment used to store the data generated during the exercise.
  • Containers or tents where the evaluation of the exercises can take place
  • Containers from where the exercise leaders can monitor and be part of the exercise
  • Communication trailers or containers for the communication equipment
