Saab awarded training contract for U.S. Army
Defence and security company Saab has received an MUSD 14.4 order (approximately 99 MSEK) to U.S. Army for radio systems for communication for live training.
Saab Training USA received an order for three exercised options of the Live Training Transformation Interim Range System (LT2-IRS) contract by the U.S. Army Program Executive Office of Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI).
Saab Training USA will produce and field three more range systems in 2013 at Fort Campbell and Fort Drum and an Exportable Training Capability (ETC) system that deploys to different training sites. Under the LT2-IRS contract, Saab Training USA is fielding communication network systems with more than 5,000 radios to enable soldiers to engage in instrumented force on force training at the home stations. Saab Training USA has fielded 17 communication networks to the U.S. Marine Corps for similar instrumented training.
“Under LT2-IRS, Saab Training USA is providing a state of art integrated instrumentation training capability at the home stations with a focus on reduced operational, support and sustainment costs” says Lars Borgwing, President of Saab Training USA.
