The Norwegian Army has awarded a contract to Saab for the provision of simulation-based training for the Norwegian armed forces.

Under the NKr69m ($9.2m) contract, Saab will provide simulators for tanks and small arms, increased capacity for communication systems and a targeting system that can be used with more than 40 different vehicle systems, facilities and constructions.

The contract is part of the system for supporting the training of units and soldiers that has been operational for several years, and is meant to recreate conditions soldiers will face outside of Nordic training grounds
