Thales Deutschland is to modernize all small arms/handheld anti-tank weapons shooting simulator training devices in use with the German army.

The work is to be implemented by the end of next year.

"We delivered the first AGSHP to the Federal Armed Forces in the early 1990s," said Stefan Wey, head of Training & Simulation at Thales Deutschland. "We are highly pleased of having now been selected to move them onto the latest state of technology with the current Sagitarrius Evolution software."

The Sagittarius Evolution product family from Thales Deutschland supports basic shooting training and tactical training through the use of graphical technology, including intuitive operation of the training system and low-maintenance simulation input devices.

A total of 185 AGSHP shooting simulators are covered under the contract, issued by the Federal Office for Equipment, Information Technology and Utilization of the Federal Armed Forces.

The value of the contract is about $5.5 million.

Pilots must be able to detect hazards as early as possible in order to quickly plot a path around them. In thick fog or clouds, however, this can be difficult. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich may have a solution for pilots in limited-visibility conditions using an augmented reality system imported to a helmet-mounted display that has been successful in flight simulator ... read more
