Developed from a set of generic components that can simulate future weapons, Saab’s BT46 laser simulator is designed for use on all types of direct firing weapons, from shoulder-fired anti-armour guns, to main battle tanks.

"The simulator replicates the ballistics and time-of-flight of a projectile in real-time, and can be used on all types of direction firing weapons."

The simulator replicates the ballistics and time-of-flight of a projectile in real-time, with a high level of precision, and simultaneously provides realistic feedback to the gunner and the target.

Specifically, the system has the ability to accurately simulate the trajectory or flight characteristics in case of a missile in real-time, and can be modified to address a huge variation of requirements.

The simulator’s built-in gyroscopes augment the system’s performance and allow it to exercise the full range of gunnery techniques for all type of targets.

To date, more than 7,000 systems have been sold by Saab to several users worldwide, as reported by forceindia.net.

Additional contract details, including the number of simulators ordered and their delivery schedule, remain undisclosed.
