New Zealand Orders Saab TESS

The New Zealand Army has contracted Saab, under a five-year agreement, to deliver a high fidelity laser-based Tactical Engagement Simulation System (TESS), providing the army with a proven, off-the-shelf and technically advanced training system, to be delivered by Saab New Zealand.

We look forward to working closely with the New Zealand Army to enhance its training outcomes,” Saab Australasia Head of Training and Simulation, Inger Lawes, said. “We are proud to deliver this significant training system to the New Zealand Army, which will now lead the region in the employment of advanced laser-based tactical engagement systems to support training.”

With this agreement and order for training systems, the New Zealand Army will have a market-leading live training system that will improve their training capability,” Åsa Thegström, Head of Training & Simulation within Saab Dynamics, continued. “We deliver a modern system that enables a wide range of training scenarios and the highest realism. This order further strengthens our market position within this field.”

The capability meets the New Zealand Army’s current requirements while providing a platform and capacity for long-term system growth.
