Saab has received an order to supply a tactical engagement simulation system (TESS) to the Polish Land Forces.

The order is the first of its type received by the company, and is part of a two-year agreement recently signed with the General Tadeusz Kosciuszko Military Academy of Land Forces in Wroclaw (WSOWL), Poland.

Saab Dynamics business area Training & Simulation business unit head Åsa Thegström said: “We look forward to working closely with the Military Academy of Land Forces to enhance their training flexibility.

"The WSOWL will have a market-leading live training system that will improve their training capability greatly."

“With this agreement and order for training systems, the WSOWL will have a market-leading live training system that will improve their training capability greatly.

"We will deliver a modern system that enables a wide range of training scenarios and highest realism.”

TESS is a technically advanced training system that offers unrivalled interoperability options within Nato and beyond, while providing the capacity for long-term system growth, Saab said in a statement.

This laser-based system will allow WSOWL to conduct realistic combat training using small arms and anti-tank weapons laser simulators.

The TESS capability is expected to improve the army’s ability to conduct and analyse the outcomes of force-on-force exercises, in line with current requirements for a long-term, sustainable and field-proven training system.

Saab said that the live training system has been developed and continuously modernised based on experience from deliveries made to more than 20 customer nations.
