How realism is a must for all Live Training

2 min read

The individual, a soldier or a commanding officer, is the centrepiece in a modern force. And consequently, in all modern training too. Live training is all about experience the elements of combat, in advance.

A training system needs to be flexible and efficient and foremost as realistic as possible. We believe that the most important prerequisite for training efficiency is just that - realism. Realism that makes it possible to train just the way you operate in your mission. Realism that provides instant and correct feedback that is so fundamentally important for the learning process at all levels. It is crucial that soldiers get the maximum effect from the training they do and feel confident in the tasks they are about to enter, and this can only be done with scenarios as close to the real operation as possible.

Live training

"Our systems can be used for training at all levels, from individual, squad or platoon level right up to and beyond brigade combat team level. It’s equally important that each individual get the correct training as well as the larger groups. What’s new is that mortar teams can now be players and part of the live training which is quite unique." says Hans Lindgren, former officer and now, Head of Business Development at Saab´s Business Unit Training and Simulation.

In the early days soldiers could never really train as the reality. There were no digital technology, no evaluation tools and you couldn’t communicate between each other outside speaking range. With time training methods developed and today realistic training is one of the cornerstones to successful missions.
