Poland awarded Saab AB the first order in a two-year agreement to deliver a high fidelity Tactical Engagement Simulations System (TESS) for the General Tadeusz Kosciuszko Military Academy of Land Forces in Wroclaw (WSOWL), Poland, the company said Thursday.

This initial order aims to provide future officers with a proven, off-the-shelf, laser-based, and technically advanced training system that offers interoperabilitity options within NATO while also providing the capability for longer term system growth.


Saab highlighted the system is based on over 35 years of tactical engagement simulation design, delivery and support expertise, and a demonstrated track record of delivering on time and on budget to most countries within NATO.

The system will allow WSOWL to conduct realistic combat training using small arms and anti-tank weapons laser simulators and evaluate exercise results.

“We look forward to working closely with the Military Academy of Land Forces to enhance their training flexibility. 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,” Åsa Thegström, head of Saab’s training and simulation business unit within the dynamics area, said in a statement.
