Thales has delivered its smallest, most mobile small arms trainer to the naval component of Germany’s Special Forces Command (KSM). The SAGITTARIUS EVOLUTION is the second Thales simulator to be ordered by the Command, following delivery of the AGSHP small arms/anti-tank training device previously delivered.
In addition to the KSM, other units including the Sea Battalion (both are stationed at Eckernförde) will use the system, specifically in the latter case for realistic training with the Dynamit Nobel WIRKMITTEL 90mm grenade/rocket launcher.
The system can be equipped on a needs-orientated basis for specialized forces with specific training scenarios (combat search and rescue, escorting ship convoys, etc.), networking systems and motion platforms in order to be able to complete training in an even more realistic manner. Each device offers marksmanship and mission training for two trainees simultaneously. The mobile system is installed in hardened rolling containers and features a wireless instructor station on a notebook. Its design permits the system to be set up by two persons in 15 minutes.
