The Israeli defense contractor Elbit Systems Ltd. was awarded a $107 million contract to provide, operate and maintain advanced tank simulators and training centers for the Israeli Defense Forces’ Armored Corps.
The new training centers will maintain readiness of both regular and reserve units. The centers will be delivered over a three-year period and the contract includes operation and maintenance services for an additional 15 years.
The centers will operate on the IDF’s cloud using Elbit’s existing simulation software infrastructure to support individual and collective training up to company level.
The centers will incorporate dedicated stations designed to train crews together with operational intelligence, combat support and logistic units.
To provide commanders and tank crews with wide range of battlefield challenges, the training systems integrates the tank’s operational sub-systems and simulates main and secondary armament weapon capabilities.
