Saab is a world leader in training and simulation for the homeland security and military sector “ Simulation offers a unique advantage over traditional live training in the efficiency of resource use and its ability to replicate training events and systematically record data for After Action Review (AAR)” “ Simulation enables us to train in ways that are not possible by traditional methods whether for health & safety, geography, manpower constraints, political sensitivity or increasing weapon and sensor capabilities” Extract from “Strategy for Simulation in Land Collective Training”
Saab – Meeting the global training need “ The need to move the level of training from the lathi to the AK47 is critical for the 2.3 million homeland security personnel”
This is what happened!
Categories of Simulation LIVE SIMULATION “ Real people, in a real environment, operating real objects but with simulated effects” VIRTUAL SIMULATION “ Real people, operating simulated equipments, in a simulated environment, generating simulated effects” CONSTRUCTIVE SIMULATION “ Real people controlling simulated units, platforms or systems, with simulated equipments, in simulated environments, generating simulated interactions & effects.

IED Advanced Advanced Björn Linderö Saab Training System AB 2010 Want to see where the VB-IED is in EXCON ? Want to know the status (armed/jammed/detonated) ? Want to visualize the IED during the AAR ? Want to training with jammer ?
Terrorist triggers !
Bomb Explodes !
Jammer is a player (tracking)
EXCON can see Jamming on/off
EXCON can set Malfunction

IED Jammer in EXCON
“ Bubble” moves with jamming vehicle.
No bubble meaning Jammer Off
Size of bubble according to set jammer type
Simulated Jammer I.e. no actual blocking of radio
