The Swiss Defence Procurement Agency (armasuisse) has received a second battle exercise simulation support platform (SIMUG) from RUAG Electronics.

The SIMUG is used to train Swiss Army soldiers on battle situations that involve realistic laser-based simulators. The simulator can deploy direct firing, bows and surface weapons while simulating the effects of projectiles with specially developed signature bodies.

All the exercise participants are equipped with laser shot simulators and connected to the main command centre via wireless local area network (W-LAN), which records the status of the participants and battle results in real time.

The data collected will be available in multimedia format for an after-action review.

The next simulation unit will be handed over to the Swiss Army on 15 March 2010, according to RUAG Electronics CEO Andreas Herren.
