Germany has awarded Saab a contract worth $19 million (180 MSEK) for a mid-life upgrade programme of the Army’s AGDUS combat vehicle simulators.
The German Army’s AGDUS BT 46 system will be upgraded to the latest generation technology. The upgrade includes high fidelity training, wireless technology and augmented reality injected into sights. It also integrates with fire control systems, provides true vehicle silhouette and full ballistic laser simulation. The system is configurable for different vehicle platforms and fully compatible with previous generations, Saab said in a statement Wednesday.
Deliveries will take place in 2020-2022.
Previously, Saab has provided the German Army with open laser cod U-LEIS in 2017.This order represents the next step in this process and includes changing obsolete hardware as well as installing new software on all vehicles, which are planned to be in use by the army until at least 2030.
