Saab has received three orders from the U.S. Army Program Executive Office of Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEOSTRI). Saab will now provide OSAG 2.0 interoperability upgrades for the U.S. 7th ATC’s Deployable Instrumentation System – Europe (DISE) and the Combat Vehicle Tactical Engagement Simulation System (CVTESS) to meet U.S. Army and European forward deployment interoperability requirements.
They will enable soldiers to quickly configure training system lasers to operate using either MILES communication code, primarily used in U.S. training environments or the OSAG 2.0 standard, used by most nations in Europe, for training engagements in any theatre and together with multinational units.
DISE provides deployable instrumented live training capability consisting of tactical engagement simulation system lasers and detectors, exercise control, battle tracking, data collection and rapid after action review capability for live training events.
In addition to the OSAG 2.0 upgrade of the DISE infantry systems, Saab will also deliver OSAG 2.0 enabled CVTESS capability for the M1 Abrams main battle tank, the Bradley infantry fighting vehicle and brackets for OPFOR (Opposition Force) vehicles
