Rheinmetall is supplying new simulation expertise for the German Military’s Fight Coaching Centre. Earlier this yr, the Federal Workplace for Bundeswehr Gear, Data Know-how and In-Service Assist (BAAINBw) awarded Rheinmetall a procurement contract for 440 state-of the-art “Coaching System, Duel Simulator (AGDUS), Passive Car” programs. The contract is price a determine within the higher single-digit million-euro vary. Supply begins in 2021 and is scheduled to be full by December 2023. The order underscores as soon as once more the good experience of Rheinmetall within the area of coaching, simulation and particularly reside simulation.

The AGDUS passiv model used up until now’s a cable-based system. Within the new model, the “AGDUS passiv” automobile goal system encompasses a wi-fi connection to the central electronics. The connection to the sensor modules essential for detection depends on radio transmission. Moreover, the gear now features a roof sensor that permits detection of hits from pictures fired from above, e.g. from rooftops. The up to date AGDUS passiv options state-of-the-art sensors and detectors which might be among the many most delicate in the marketplace as we speak. Their excessive sensitivity ensures dependable detection below antagonistic climate situations like fog, even at prolonged ranges of engagement – a significant plus in all kinds of coaching operations.


By simulating the results of weapons fireplace, the laser-supported Coaching System, Duel Simulator (AGDUS) permits extremely sensible fight coaching. It consists of sensors on the automobile that obtain laser alerts; the central electronics; and a show and management unit. The programs allow extremely sensible fight coaching by exact dedication of the simulated hit location and an in depth injury simulation primarily based on vehicle-specific injury fashions. All information and information in regards to the laser-based engagement are relayed in near-real time to the train management cell, the place the outcomes of hits are depicted optically.

The sensor modules can by arrayed and expanded in accordance with particular coaching necessities. Encompassing the so referred to as casualty mannequin which calculates the implications of a success for crew and automobile, the connection between the sensors and the central electronics encompasses a short-range radio transmission system. That is primarily based on a proprietary answer from Rheinmetall involving a multi-frequency course of to guarantee stability of coaching. The alerts are bundled and transmitted concurrently by way of two or extra radio hyperlinks (frequency variety). To guarantee the required stability, the transmitter and receiver function in parallel, thus avoiding breaks in transmission.
