Defence and security company Saab has received an order from the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO) to supply the Norwegian Combat Training Centre with advanced training and simulation systems, plus support. The order amounts to SEK141 million and delivery will be from 2016 to 2020.
Saab’s business unit Training and Simulation has supplied the Norwegian Army with training equipment since 2003. Today’s order is a continuation of the existing service contract but also includes an upgrade of the training facility. The Norwegian Army will be the first customer to receive Saab’s new generation sight simulator unit for vehicles, ensuring a more realistic training experience.
“NDLO is pleased to continue the good cooperation we have had with Saab for several years. This ensures access to advanced training for the Norwegian Army,” says Brigadier Bjarne Nermo, head of NDLO Land Systems Division.
“We are very happy to continue our long and close cooperation with the Norwegian Army. Together we will expand and improve the current training capabilities at the Norwegian Combat Training Centre,” says Dag Wikören, head of marketing and sales for Saab in Norway.
The Norwegian Combat Training Centre consists of a complete battalion-level training system for soldiers, vehicles, anti-tank weapons along with a first-class exercise control system.

Babcock has been awarded a contract by the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO) to provide an Automated Control and Management System (ACMS) to drive the secure delivery of data and voice communications between Norwegian Joint Headquarters (NJHQ) and its armed forces.The new, single, ACMS will replace the current control systems and will interact with 25 sites across Norway. The system will comprise a number of operator workstations at which messages will be co-ordinated and sent via the high frequency (HF) network, as well as the hardware required to manage, encrypt, broadcast and receive all transmissions securely.
The ACMS will be tailored to meet NDLO requirements, compatible with related systems including full interoperability with NATO equipment (tested in Babcock’s systems integration laboratory prior to installation) while also paving the way for future development needs. The open and scalable system architecture provides flexibility and adaptability, enabling simple and cost-efficient system upgrade or installation of new components. Further, the use of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) products where possible will reduce through-life costs.
