KMW delivers Elk Test for Swedish Army

Category: Training And Simulators

Munich -- Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co. KG (KMW) delivers an Egress Trainer for various types of military wheeled and tracked vehicles to the Swedish Armed Forces in 2013.

The purpose of the system is to simulate a vehicle rollover in order for vehicle crews to be trained to egress a vehicle lying on its side or upside down. KMW Training & Simulation will deliver the Egress Training System together with it's partner MSE Weibull AB from Sweden in 2013.

The Egress Trainer contains the rollover simulator, the instructor station and the vehicle cabin which can be exchanged within short time due to the sophisticated design of universal mounting brackets. A digital audio/video surveillance system with record and replay function serves as the tool for training analysis and debriefing but is also the key component to provide maximum safety during all training operations. The vehicle mock-ups can be as large as the Swedish CV90 IFV including a rotatable turret.

"This strong training need is the result of a rigorous analysis of incidents which happened during recent out of area missions under real combat conditions. At a very early stage we have developed our own ideas for a modular Egress Trainer." Dr. Dirk Schmidt, Senior Vice President Training & Simulation.

Krauss-Maffei Wegmann GmbH & Co. KG provides further information on the Egress Trainer at I/ITSEC 2012, the world's largest modeling, simulation & training conference (December 03rd -December 6th) in Orlando, USA (Booth #1201).
