The culmination point in a unit’s preparation for its mission is live tactical engagement training:
real participants fight against real adversaries with real weapons, in a real environment. Only shots are simulated.
We aim to provide a live tactical engagement training experience closest to reality to maximize
its learning outcome. This is especially true for militia armies such as the Swiss Armed Forces,
where training time is limited, and every training hour is precious.
Key benefits of our solutions
A key condition for effective live training is a high level of fidelity. Our system is unparalleled in terms of immersion, featuring realistic weapon characteristics and hit effects, including collateral damage.
A variety of sensors capture data throughout the exercise, to objectively compare tactical performance over time and between individuals or units.
The system supports a broad range of weapons, as well as building and vehicle components, resulting in practically limitless use cases.
Joint, combined and inter service exercises can be conducted with partners using equipment from different suppliers, and our components can expand the capabilities of existing third-party solutions.
Other products and services
The Swiss army stands out amongst Training & Simulations customers by entrusting to Thales all Combat Training Center logistics before, during, after and between exercises, thus drastically cutting costs. Our teams perfectly know the drill, allowing the Swiss army to train thousands of soldiers almost non-stop.
We also offer Maintenance, Repair & Overhaul (MRO) services, to ensure the highest availability of our clients’ investment, as well as Training as a Service (TaaS), whereas customers indicate us when and where they want to train, and we handle everything but the tactical instruction. Finally, Switzerland also has extensive know-how with military vehicle simulators, both in terms of software and hardware.
Furthermore, Thales full-flight helicopter simulators EC635 and TH06 have been in daily use at the Air Force in Emmen for many years.
