Bagira’s MAGNET delivered to Peruvian Army
Bagira’s full MAGNET system, including MAGNET adaptation for Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) GALIL assault rifle and Dynamit Nobel Defence PANZERFAUST 3 anti-tank rocket, was recently delivered to the Peruvian Army, accompanied by one year of operational and maintenance service, as part of Bagira’s focus on the mission readiness of its customers.
Based on laser technology, the MAGNET system offers the ability to control, manage, and monitor the trainees while providing advanced After Action Review (AAR) capabilities through state of the art technology.
The system is controlled by a specially tailored Instructor Field App (IFA), an innovative approach to infantry tactical live training for AAR. This Android based app is easy to use and an efficient solution for the training cycle, in which the users can also bring trainees “back to life,” “re-supply” trainees ammunition, and send voice messages to a specific trainee or to all trainees. In addition, the app also supports advanced documentation abilities including videos, pictures, notes, and voice recordings and allows the production of a detailed review at the end of each training session.
“We at Bagira Systems strive to provide our customers the best training systems in order to improve their Mission Readiness,” Yaron Mizrachi, Bagira Systems’ General Manager, said. “The MAGNET system presents a revolution in many aspects to the existing tactical live laser based training systems.”
An exclusive cooperation with Meggitt Training Systems included a demonstration of the Multi-Function Stationary Infantry Target System (MF-SIT) for the IDF (Israel Defence Forces), which enables full range of training capabilities, including Pop-Up target movement, Swing Out, Slice, Vertically Rise and Pop-Up Turning/ Judgmental target actions. The target’s movements are precise, dynamic and respond quickly to commands. The system can be rapidly installed in different terrains and adapt to various range of environments, infrastructures, and operational constraints according to the commander’s requirements. It provides realistic situations by responding to hits, ensuring trainees do not anticipate target actions.
The system, which will be used mostly for urban warfare training, but also for open terrains, will be operated by the trainees and controlled by Bagira Systems’ instructors. It will ensure quick, efficient and challenging self-training for the trainees, and will improve commanders’ performance in new ways.
Bagira Systems is exhibiting the MAGNET system in booth #31 at ITEC 2017 taking place in Rotterdam this week.
