We develop simulators, rigs, and support systems for all product development phases (concept, marketing, development and validation). STS also develops their own products: training simulators for pilots and technicians.

    STS works internationally, operating and maintaining large training facilities in Sweden and abroad. With our many years of experience we have acquired extensive competence in simulation engineering, and we have a unique role as a complete supplier throughout the product development cycle. We always work in close cooperation with the aeroplane development and verification projects. In short, working at STS offers great possibilities in developing skills within the discipline of simulation technology.

The main task is to support the development and maintenance and operator publications for the Gripen support systems and training simulators, as well as course development and execution. The section currently has 8 employees.
