Equipment of VJTF 2023

We supply simulation technology for the realistic combat training of armored infantrymen with the Puma infantry fighting vehicle (IFV) and implement laser detectors and laser transmitters that are mounted around the vehicle. The laser algorithms are programmed in such a way that shots and hits can be simulated with ballistic accuracy.

Modern soldier systems

We develop equipment and reliable means of communication to create the best possible conditions for infantrymen. Here, our software developers (m/f/d) make a decisive contribution in connection with the development of optronic components or means of communication, such as headsets and head-up displays.
