US army vehicles to get laser training simulator

Tuesday, 1 August 2017

Defense contractor Lockheed Martin will collaborate with Saab on the US Army’s Instrumentable-Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System (I-MILES).

I-MILES Vehicle Tactical Engagement Simulation System (VTESS) allows commanders to simulate violent conflict via force-on-force and force-on-target training exercises with lasers and blank rounds, according to Military & Aerospace Electronics. In April, the Pentagon awarded the firm $288 million to build the system.Lockheed is basically building a highly sophisticated laser tag game. In the same way laser guns at the arcade “tag” opponents when they are hit, the Army outfits troops with laser receivers covering their bodies to signal when an infantry fighter has been struck by another troop’s weapon during wargames.

Combat vehicles will similarly wear laser receiving devices while their weapons’ lasers will be able to “shoot” the same range as the auto’s actual armaments under I-MILES VTESS.

Lockheed plans to finish the program by the spring of 2024.
