I/ITSEC 2015: Elbit Systems to Deliver Combat Training System to Poland’s Special Forces

Elbit Systems has been chosen to deliver live Combat Training System (CTS) and equipment to Polish SOF. It is an advanced, highly-realistic simulations-based trainer that has been specifically designed for marines and SOF, ranging from individual soldiers up to full-size units. The CTS can be used to simulate a wide array of operational conditions and real-world elements, including those found in urban, rural and indoor environments.

As part of the project, Elbit Systems, in cooperation with RUAG Defence and Autocomp Management, will deliver live-fire training suites for soldiers, vehicles and vessels, simulation equipment for use in training facilities, as well as inert explosives (simulants), grenades and suicide bomber kits. In addition, it will provide Digital Video Recording (DVR) and data-link capabilities that enable network training to and from a centralized management control, across all training forces and equipment. This will make it possible to record, monitor, and post-analyse the entire training process.

Elbit's CTS was chosen, among many competitors, due to its superior performance and reliability,” Yoram Shmuely, General Manager of Elbit Systems' Aerospace Division explained. “We are very proud to partner with RUAG Defence and Autocomp Management in this project, and hope that it will further strengthen our cooperation in the field of land-based training and simulation, both in the region and beyond.”
