Patria Nemo training simulator – new features on display

Patria Nemo training simulator provides a realistic, virtual training environment for all kinds of fire missions that can be performed with Patria Nemo mortar system. The simulator combines virtual training with actual Nemo hardware and software that is installed in a cabin simulating the Nemo commander’s or gunner’s position in the vehicle. The equipment consists of the hardware and software used in the Nemo system, such as software applications for controlling the turret and firing, control grip, operating panels and displays.

Overall the simulator concept includes the Gunner Commander Station (GCS), the Instructor/Operator Station (IOS) and optionally a Loader’s Training Station (LTS).

At DSEI the GCS and IOS will be on display. The IOS, used for student monitoring and exercise management, also has a new feature called event based student tracking. With this feature, overall training procedures can be further divided into individual events to be performed by students, for example the loading or triggering of the weapon. The status and completion level can then be monitored on the IOS student tracking display and feedback be given either live or during a post-training analysis.

Experience the new 40°, 50 ° and 60° image intensifiers and Millog LISA target acquisition system

Millog has launched three new VVLITE Image Intensifiers with 40°, 50 ° and 60° field of view, designed for a wide range of night operations. All models increase soldiers´ situational awareness of environment and allow for rapid and safer movement during military operations.
