Elbit Systems Provides Advanced Driving Simulators for Two NATO Armies

Elbit Systems announced on May 3 that it has completed the delivery of a number of driving simulators for the armed forces of two NATO member countries. The simulators, which were delivered to the driving schools of both countries, are expected to enrich the training plan of new drivers, as well as support the operational readiness of qualified drivers.

As part of the project, Elbit Systems designed, developed, produced and delivered three types of driving simulators: a 4x4 mine protected vehicle (KMW’s DINGO 2), an 8x8 armoured infantry fighting vehicle (GD-MOWAG’s Piranha IIIC) and a 6x6 off-road truck (IVECO’s Trakker). All of these can be operated in both stand-alone and convoy training modes. The next phase of the project includes on-site maintenance and support and is expected to span the next 10 years.

“These high-fidelity driving simulators are part of our global land-based training programmes, which include customers in Israel, Europe and Asia,” commented Yoram Shmuely, general manager of Elbit Systems’ Aerospace Division. “In this project we delivered a highly-flexible solution capable of emulating a full range of driving scenarios in both tracked and wheeled combat vehicles. The advanced fidelity, realism and immersion achieved through the simulators is further proof of Elbit Systems’ commitment to delivering reliable and affordable training capabilities to leading land forces worldwide.”
