KMW ( Krauss-Maffei Wegmann) delivers CV90 vehicle egress training systems to Sweden ~ the contract signing took place at I/ITSEC.
Press Release, Munich / Orlando, 29 November 2022: The Swedish Defense Materiel Administration (FMV) has commissioned KMW (Krauss-Maffei Wegmann) to supply a further cabin for the Swedish Army’s vehicle egress trainer. The contract signing took place at the Interservice / Industry Training, Simulation and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) in Orlando/Florida.
Components of the contract include the development, manufacture, and integration of an interchangeable ARCHER artillery system cabin for the existing system and an option for additional vehicle cabins. The ARCHER interchangeable cabin will be manufactured by Swedish partner W5 Solutions and is expected to be delivered by the end of 2024.
The training unit developed by KMW is capable of accommodating specially manufactured vehicle cabins and simulating rollovers. This allows the crew to train egress while the vehicle is in various orientations. The Swedish Army currently has a total of three vehicle egress trainer systems with which it trains egress from CV90 cabins.
