Eurosatory 2016: RUAG SITTAL Proven Efficient/Effective Training Tool by French Army

At Eurosatory 2016, RUAG showcases its SITTAL small arms trainer, which is now available with wireless technology and in a mobile configuration. These latest developments make training more effective by providing users their full range of natural movement, and increasing access to training.


RUAG Defence is continuing to develop its SITTAL small arms trainer. The professional shooting simulator teaches weapon handling and firing for both individuals and fire teams, on a range of weapon types. The latest development makes wireless weapons compatible with the SITTAL and still provides the precision and realism that is the hallmark of RUAG Defence’s Simulation & Training technology.

SITTAL has proven an efficient and effective training tool since its adoption by the French Army, thanks to its high realism and the depth of analysis made possible by the data it records. Instructors can assess trainee’s aim, trigger pressure and even breathing during exercises allowing them to make corrections and improve performance.

SITTAL is powered by RUAG’s immersive 3D technology encompassing realistic scenarios and environments inhabited by characters whose behaviour is made realistic thanks to advanced artificial intelligence. Instructors can easily edit and create new scenarios, improving the continued effectiveness of trainings and helping users train for specific missions they will face.

The new mobile configuration of the SITTAL provides an easily transportable version of the trainer with space for five shooters. This configuration provides the same detailed feedback on trainee’s performance but doesn’t require dedicated infrastructure.

At EUROSATORY 2016 RUAG is exhibiting under its new promise “We listen to make it right, we stay to make it real, a promise you can trust.” The new promise has been formulated to restress RUAG’s long term commitment to its customers, its solution oriented focus and trustworthiness.
