On March 17th, RUAG Defence France and the Lithuanian Armed Forces signed a major contract for the delivery of Small Arms Training Indoor Simulators (SATIS), following an international competitive bid process. SATIS is a high-fidelity simulator for indoor shooting training at individual and unit levels. It is an evolution of SITTAL, which is still used by the French Armed Forces in more than 50 garrisons countrywide, and by the Ivorian Armed and Law Enforcement Forces. Lithuania opted for the mobile version, allowing fast and easy deployment from garrison to garrison.
Supporting a variety of tetherless weapons, SATIS helps individuals improve marksmanship, handling, and shooting procedures. SATIS features an automatic after-action review (AAR) to assess efficiency, accuracy, dispersion, reaction time, and more. The Lithuanian Armed Forces will also use SATIS to strengthen decision-making and coordination competencies by running exercises with groups of up to ten soldiers. SATIS supports customizable combat scenarios managed by artificial intelligence (AI), and a great variety of virtual 3D battlefields, such as urban, countryside or desert.
SITTAL is a professional simulator for classroom shooting (indoor) dedicated to the training of small arms operators at the individual and collective levels. SITTAL is the shooting simulator widely used by French Forces for initial and refresher training. The use of different weapons and the mastery of technique in complex situation requires shooters to assimilate precise movement patterns and individual as well as collective procedures which can only be acquired by manipulation and repetition.
The state-of-the-art technology supports small arms training scenarios that are customizable to your training goals and scenarios, cost-efficient and reliable. Fixed Virtual simulation installations enable training at both individual and collective levels in support of your efforts to ensure mission readiness and accurate performance. Indoor shooting ranges feature the full portfolio of tethered and tetherless weaponry for instruction at basic skills levels and up to advanced proficiency.
