Thales has signed the first export contract for the ‘Combat Staff Trainer system’ with the Polish Armed Forces.
The company will deliver five tactical combat training systems that will help the Polish Army meet its tactical training requirements.
To meet the specific requirements of the Polish land forces, the system will be updated, and its functionality will be extended.
The Thales-developed computer-based simulation systems will be delivered to five regiments in Poland.
Designed to conduct collective training exercises, the solution features a software suite that allows planning and monitoring of exercises, as well as carrying out reviews post-training.
The system enables every person in the organisation, right from dismounted soldier to the battalion commander, to participate in the tactical training exercises.
Each system allows up to 38 personnel to train simultaneously in a highly realistic ‘virtual and cyber-secured environment’.
The company’s artificial intelligence (AI) Computer Generated Forces (CGF) application creates 2D and 3D models of operational scenarios that are representative of the Poland Army’s theatres of operations.
In addition, 3D models of the actual weapon systems used by the army can be created and used.
This is intended to provide a fully immersive training experience for the land forces.
Thales noted that the Combat Staff Trainer system is already in service with the French Army.
Work under the contract will be carried out in stages in the coming two years. The company’s Polish staff will partner with local users to install and provide support for all the systems.
