Saab to expand Czech Republic tactical training system

Saab has secured a contract from the Czech Republic’s Ministry of Defence to expand the Czech’s instrumented Saab GAMER laser based training capability.

With the new upgraded Tactical Training System (TSS), the Czech Army and the military police, will receive a large number of additional capabilities and functionalities in their “Company Plus” sized training exercises. The order includes upgrades of the existing system, new key functions within soldier-equipped training systems, vehicle-based systems with ballistic and real time of flight simulation and also urban terrain training solutions.

Åsa Thegström, head of business unit Training & Simulation within Saab business area Dynamics, said: “Saab’s high fidelity system will enable the Czech Army to increase its operational capabilities and to join the family of nations with interoperable training systems, which includes interoperability between all battle functions.”

The Czech Army acquired the first Instrumented Saab GAMER system in 2011 for the Pandur IFV and performed upgrades during 2016 for laser code interoperability (U –LEIS). With this new expansion the Czech Army has a training system that meets their training needs.

Krasimira Stoyanova, head of Saab Country Unit Central and Eastern Europe, said: “Saab and the Czech Armed Forces has a long-lasting commercial relationship. This order represents an important extension of the system acquired by Czech Army in 2011 and demonstrates high trust, satisfaction and confidence by the customer towards the tactical training system provided by Saab.”
