Havelsan has recently established a counter-terrorism training and simulation technologies centre to showcase a number of live and virtual training solutions, including a precise tracking system for urban operations training. The centre, at Havelsan's Ankara headquarters, includes a demonstration three-building instrumented training site for urban operations that is typical of eastern Turkey and an indoor virtual training facility.
The site instrumentation includes Havelsan's radio frequency identification (RFID)-based tracking system, which uses RFID tags embedded in the paving blocks. Each trainee has an RFID receiver attached to a foot, which transmits the location to exercise control (EXCON). The accuracy of the tracking system depends on the density of the tag layout, but a Havelsan representative told Jane's that with a tag in each paving block this could be reduced to 50 cm.
