Germany’s Rheinmetall AG has been awarded several modernization contracts that total around 24 million Euros, under which the company will expand the system technology of the German Army Combat Training Center (GÜZ) in a series of projects that will last until 2020.
The modernization includes expansion of the headquarters software to enable execution and evaluation of training sequences in the site’s “Schnöggersburg” urban combat environment, as well as modernization of the training area data communication system.
Rheinmetall’s Simulation and Training unit will also be responsible for readying the GÜZ for drills in the form of military operations in urban terrain.
In addition to the updates listed above, the hardware of the existing GÜZ system technology in the headquarters cell will be upgraded with the latest technology. GÜZ headquarters will also be equipped with new capabilities for directing and evaluating exercises in built-up areas.
Military formations of all types train and prepare for every conceivable task and mission at the German Army Combat Training Center.
