Fully instrumented laser-based Tactical Engagement Simulation Systems are to be delivered to Poland by Saab of Sweden.
Saab said the two TESS systems for the General Tadeusz Kosciuszko Military Academy of Land Forces are being supplied are an initial order under a two-year contract from the academy.
"This initial order will provide the future officers with a proven, off-the-shelf and technically advanced training system which offers unrivalled interoperability options within NATO and beyond," Saab said.
Saab said the systems enable realistic combat training using small arms and anti-tank weapons laser simulators and evaluate the results of exercises.
"We look forward to working closely with the Military Academy of Land Forces to enhance their training flexibility," said Asa Thegstrom, head of the Training & Simulation unit within Saab's Dynamics business area. "With this agreement and order for training systems, the WSOWL will have a market-leading live training system that will improve their training capability greatly."
