Training[edit]

  • Precision gunnery and skills training
  • Tactical training
  • Live fire training
  • Urban operations training [3]

Tactical training is the most complex of the categories because the entire session is recorded on a computer. When a soldier participates in a training session, he/she wears a vest with small loudspeakres, a radio antenna and built in GPS. The helmet has laser detectors and reflectors. Via a radio network the GPS is able to send location information to the tablet and the commander. The commander then can supervise the movements of the troops. The commander can also give commands to soldiers via a Saab-developed Radio Communications system called DAN (data acquisition network.) [4]
