Saab and the Danish Ministry of Defence, Acquisition and Logistics Organisation (DALO) are entering into a Framework Agreement for live training solutions. The framework agreement has a duration of 15 years, with an option for a further 5 years. The potential order value is approximately DKK 550 million over the period. The framework agreement will enable the Danish Armed Forces to place orders for all the necessary equipment for Saab’s live training solutions to establish a Mobile Exercise Control (EXCON). The agreement also covers onsite support, service, spare parts, repair and education. The aim for this agreement is to enable the Danish Army to conduct live training exercises where the weapons effect will have a realistic, simulated impact on manoeuvres to boost the Army’s training.
“This solution will enhance our training capability and secure our long-term possibility to train our forces, within as well as across borders, with our allied nations for a long time going forward. It will also ensure immediate feedback and integration of the various entities on the battlefield, providing exercises with full realism and maximised training effect,” says René Ulbjerg Toft, Deputy Technical Director, Command Support, DALO.
“This agreement will ensure that the Danish Army are equipped with the market leading, flexible training solutions and required training capability. Our training solutions will enable them to train fully deployable at the point-of-need, and as close to reality as possible, while remaining fully interoperable with other nations,” says Åsa Thegström, head of Saab’s business unit Training & Simulation.
Saab live training concept covers all training needs, from the individual up to and beyond brigade level. The system base is modular and scalable, making it easy to configure your precise requirements. The Combat Training Centre (CTC), which monitors every step and action in the training session is the heart of our training solutions. The CTC is available as a mobile container, which can be deployed at the point of need or as a fixed solution to be placed at a stationary location. With support of up to 10 000 participants and an area coverage of up to 40*40 km. The CTC can be tailor-suited for your specific needs. The system provides realistic simulations that allow individuals to train as they fight. The simulators are interoperable with MILES equipment and suit small- and large-scale training. The EXCON’s suite of interoperable software tools is designed to help prepare, plan, execute, control and evaluate exercises. It offers detailed, accurate and rapid feedback as well as comprehensive after-action review.
Saab has a long-established reputation for providing excellent value and operational confidence to our customers, and we are very proud of our long-term supplier agreements and partnerships, with some going back over two decades. At Saab, engineering support means closing the gap between existing system functionality and the ever-developing training needs of the user.
