Saab to deliver training systems for Swedish Army

Saab has signed a contract worth SEK 51 million with the Swedish Defence Materiel Administration, FMV, for training systems for the Swedish Army.

The contract include deliveries of the Manpack 300 training system to most of the regiments in Sweden and a number of networked base stations. The Manpack 300 systems, used for controlling, monitoring and collecting training data for analyse of exercises, comes with commercial 4G-functionality.

This upgraded system will give the Swedish Army an improved capability during exercises. The base stations come in the form of mobile containers, which provides the opportunity to deploy the equipment and practice anywhere.

Åsa Thegström, Head of business unit Training & Simulation within Saab business area Dynamics, said: “With this order, the Swedish Army is upgrading and modernising its training capability. The new systems allow for larger geographical coverage for the training. It also ensures that radio communication can be recorded via the base stations, allowing the customer to evaluate that part of the training.

“The Swedish Army has in recent years invested heavily in improving their training capability and strengthening their simulator portfolio. They have always been one of the leading users of simulators and with the new instrumented training systems, based on the latest 4G technology, they will place themselves at the forefront.”
