Selected Industrial View with Henrik Höjer, Senior Vice President Simulation & Training RUAG Defence
On the occasion of I/ITSEC 2017, MILITARY TECHNOLOGY publishes its Annual Simulation and Training Bosses (SATB) Series that conveys the thoughts and messages of the world’s defence simulation and training leaders, according to the question: “How do you apply/integrate live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) technologies to your tactical training, and can LVC training address the military’s readiness crisis??”
RUAG is the worldwide best-known provider of simulators with scalable fidelity in the domains Live, Virtual and Constructive simulation. We do provide single products and complete systems that are used mostly in a single installations.
Today’s in the world of recognised military readiness crisis we do believe that the simulators based on the scalable fidelity, high precision, where every single participant of the military exercise is equally involved, are indispensable. The training and education based on our simulation systems enables soldiers to use the modern armament and military equipment and learns to take a correct tactical decisions and behaviours. The simulation will not replace the live firing or live coordination of the troops on the brigade level during international exercise, nevertheless simulators prepare soldiers for a real situation.
One of the reasons of readiness crisis are mentioned steady new challenges showing on the world map of conflicts and today army structures are not sufficiently prepared to take a quick response on this. Our products from the L, V or C domain are based on a modular concept of standard products enriched with individual customised functionalities. Based on that we deliver a specific solution exact suitable for the customer needs where individual training goals can be defined or efficiency of a various doctrines can be tested.
Additional to this, we differentiate ourselves on the market through involving in the simulation every single participant of the exercise. Our system pursues the leaders and every single soldiers equally. After the exercise, every participant can get an objective feedback about his skills individually, their strengths or weaknesses in a readiness can be recognised and further education process can be shaped.
I/ITSEC is showcasing the future of innovation across defences and www.monch.com/mpg/news/iitsec17.html brings together key developments from the show.
