Saab in partnership with Capgemini France is selected for MOUT
definition study by the French DGA

Saab Training Systems, Huskvarna, Sweden, in partnership with Capgemini
France, Paris, has been selected by the French DGA (Délégation Générale
pour l'Armement) to conduct a definition study for the future French
MOUT (Military Operations in Urban Terrain) Combat Training Centre
CENZUB (Centre d'Entraînement aux actions en Zone Urbaine) based in
France (Sissonne).

- We are proud to be selected in the face of keen competition for the
definition study. Our success in the area of instrumented training
centers has lead to the development of our urban training capability
enabling units to train the full spectrum of warfighting and peace
keeping from open to urban terrain, says Johan Ohlson, CEO for Saab
Training Systems.

The principal mission of the centre will be combined arms training at
battalion level in an urban environment. The centre will cater for a
broad spectrum of training from basic street craft and building entry up
to tactical exercises with direct/indirect fire effects on buildings.
This broad training capability will require a modular and scalable
simulation infrastructure that can readily be adapted to meet the phased
levels of training and mission objectives with their attendant changes
in the rules of engagement.

The first part of the definition study will consist of defining the
architecture of the proposed centre and the second part a detailed
definition of simulation, instrumentation, exercise command and control
together with logistic support. At the end of the contract period a
series of demonstrations will be performed.
