Argus soldier system
An outstanding soldier system for improved situational awareness
Rheinmetall Canada’s Argus soldier system uses specialized BMC4I software to provide a common operating picture with important mission information, such as friendly positions, enemy positions, and terrain overlaid on tactical maps. Voice and data are rapidly exchanged between soldiers and their commander, resulting in an overall increase in team mobility, lethality, sustainability, and interoperability. Wearable electronics are ergonomic and reduced to a minimum. The easy-to-use interface ensures that soldiers remain focused on the mission.
PSS – Persistent Surveillance System
Protection of critical assets
Rheinmetall’s innovative and operationally proven Persistent Surveillance System (PSS) provides the user effective and intelligent surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities. PSS enhances situational awareness, reducing critical decisionmaking time based on real-time information. Highly mobile and easily deployed, the PSS offers an unsurpassed protection above areas at risk and is ideal for tactical surveillance applications for military, border, coastal, and energy sectors, as well as for public security.
Command and Control Software
Empowering operators with superior situational awareness
Given the rise of asymmetric threats targeting military and critical infrastructure, reinforcing your assets with actionable intelligence is a must. Rheinmetall is a leading supplier of command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance, targeting, acquisition and reconnaissance (C4ISTAR) capabilities with its groundbreaking Rheinmetall Command and Control Software (RC2S). This software is fully integrated with the Vingtaqs II, the Fieldranger Multi weapon station, and the Argus soldier system – to name just a few – for optimized military operations.
MESO trainerFor the Canadian Navy, Rheinmetall Canada is supplying the Marine Engineering System Operator (MESO) trainer for the KINGSTON Class of maritime coastal defence vessels. The MESO trainer significantly enhances the Navy’s ability to train engineering personnel, which is a critical factor in vessel operational availability.
ADOS – Air Defence Operations SimulatorThe Air Defence Operations Simulator (ADOS) is a simulation and training system developed by Rheinmetall Canada using COTS simulation tools. The ADOS provides the Royal Netherlands Army’s Advanced Ground Based Air Defence System (AGBADS) operators with a classroom-type training system and an air defence operations research tool.
LVCTS – Land Vehicle Crew Training System
Rheinmetall is teaming up with Lockheed Martin in pursuit of the Canadian Army’s Land Vehicle Crew Training System (LVCTS) project.
Rheinmetall Canada takes the lead in a partnership that includes Lockheed Martin Canada, Rheinmetall Electronics of Bremen, Germany, and Lockheed Martin Training and Logistics Solutions in Orlando, Florida. The team named FORC3 offers the Canadian Army a solution for the LVCTS project that is mature, modular, and cost effective, while ensuring high-value economic benefits to Canada. The name FORC3 is all about promoting a partnership between Rheinmetall, Lockheed Martin, and the Department of National Defence, united through excellence to enable training for adaptive disperse operations.
