Saab Training Systems Launches Integrated MOUT Concept

Saab Training Systems Launches Integrated MOUT Concept Saab Training Systems, Huskvarna, Sweden, is launching a total concept for tactical combat exercises in and around buildings. The concept makes it possible to hold joint exercises with the infantry, armour, air support, and indirect fire in and around buildings. The mobile equipment can be assembled on location in just a few hours. "We have developed a concept allowing maximum use of existing equipment for tactical exercises in environments with buildings. As a partner to our customers in training situations, we have now made it possible to arrange an exercise area in just a short time, which could be useful, for example, in international assignments," says Johan Ohlson, Chief Executive Officer, Saab Training Systems. Saab has met the growing customer need to hold exercises in areas with buildings, particularly in preparation for and during international assignments. This places several demands: the possibility of using existing equipment, temporarily or permanently setting up in available buildings, positioning in buildings, scaleability, modularity and the possibility of simulating the effects of firing at buildings with direct and indirect fire. Saab has supplemented its comprehensive GAMER system concept with modules for training exercises that can even be used in and around buildings, featuring new software and a small number of components for fast instrumentation of buildings and rooms. The GAMER system was already capable of following units on exercises in the field; you can see the position of the players and the results of their actions. Now the GAMER system can also track players indoors thanks to a seamless transition between the global positionering system (GPS) and Saab's new development system for exercises in and around buildings. New features include applications for simulating hand grenades and IED (improvised explosive device) threats as well as the effects on and inside buildings that are fired at. The system achieves visualization through expanded functionality in GAMER, with powerful support for analyzing and evaluating the exercise. You can assess the unit's tactical performance in either 2D or 3D using the included tactical components. The system can also be supplemented with video support for customers who wish to evaluate skills in specific training elements. Saab Training Systems develops, manufactures and markets advanced military training equipment such as laser simulator systems, instrumented training systems and target equipment, and provides service and maintenance for training systems. Saab is one of the world's leading high-technology companies, with its main operations focusing on defence, aviation and space. The group covers a broad spectrum of competence and capabilities in systems integration.
