IDEX 2017

Build driver confidence [IDEX17D5]

23 February 2017

Having secured a contract in the Middle East in 2014, ECA Group (Stand 07-B43) has once again been awarded a similar contract for the supply of a military vehicle simulator (MVS). While not revealing the contract value, the company said it was significant.

The driving simulators are for three additional schools for the same customer, who expressed satisfaction with the quality and efficiency of training carried out at the first three schools, hence the awarding of the new contract to the ECA Group.

Each of the schools is equipped with five MVSs and one instructor station. All of them are connected to the same simulation training system to provide training of military vehicle crews for both individual and collective driving instruction.

MVSs enable instructors and trainees to run courses adapted for different levels, namely initial driving, advanced driving and collective driving.

The ECA Group has a long track record of developing driving training programmes, with this new family of simulators for the defence sector combining advanced educational methods with realistic military interface and environments.
