Swedish defence major Saab has signed an agreement with Indianeye Security Private Limited, a capacity-builder, to market and distribute its Agile Tactical Engagement Simulation (ATES) systems to Indian forces.
ATES systems will enable armed forces, paramilitary and special forces and police to practice warfare and security tactics, techniques and procedures in an instrumented ‘force-on-force’ training environment.
“The accompanying Gamer Manpack can record all player positions, firing and event data for use during or after action review. Army officers conducting training can use Saab’s ATES system to create a complete real-time situational awareness of the event as it unfolds,” a release said here.
Saabb’s India chief Lars-Olof Lindgren said the development further strengthened the company’s relations with the Indian market, as Indianeye Security uses a Saab platform to impart state-of-art training to police and industry.
“Their knowledge and use of our systems will enable them to be effective advocates and distribution partners for Saab’s ATES system,” Lindgren said.
The ATES equipment includes BT47 Personnel Detection Device (Helmet Halos), Small Arms Transmitter, Urban Operations TES equipment, grenade and booby trap simulators and the Gamer Manpack-Exercise Control Console.
Indianeye Security is already providing training to police officers, industry and individuals at their training academy at Belgundi. They will be also using the BT47 platform to demonstrate the system’s capabilities to the forces.
Said Saab’s chief knowledge officer Harry Dhaul: “Our aim is to provide world-class training facilities and equipment to all the personnel involved in the homeland security space.”
