  • Enterprises need comprehensive situational awareness to detect and respond to potential or existing emergencies, minimize the fallout, and return to "normal" operations. To achieve this, enterprises must invest in two things: 1) technologies that can connect existing stove-piped systems, and 2) continuous staff training.

    The world's infrastructures are more interwoven than ever; thus, the consequences of emergencies and crises can spill over organizational, jurisdictional and geographical borders. Enterprises need comprehensive situational awareness to detect and respond to potential or existing emergencies, minimize the fallout, and return to "normal" operations. To achieve this, enterprises must invest in two things: 1) technologies that can connect existing stove-piped systems, and 2) continuous staff training.

  • Imagine you're a soldier facing live combat for the first time. You've spent months preparing for this moment – yet the training solutions you implemented during force-on-force exercises do not resemble what is unfolding around you. How should you proceed when when negative training has caused you to incorrectly engage opposing forces in a real-life situation?

    Our warfighters spend months preparing for real-life combat – yet when they enter the battlefield, the training solutions they implemented during force-on-force exercises may not resemble what is unfolding around them. How should they proceed when negative training has caused them to incorrectly engage opposing forces in a real-life situation?

     
  • Two years ago, the Carl-Gustaf M4 was launched at the Association of the U.S. Army exhibition (AUSA) in Washington D.C. Presently, four customers have signed contracts for the system. How did a new system generate that level of interest in such a short time?

  • In December 2013, Saab signed a Joint Development Agreement with Boeing to cultivate a new training solution for the U.S. Air Force's (USAF) upcoming competition to replace its T-38 aircrew training system. Nearly three years later on September 13, 2016, we are rolling out our new system: the T-X. Designed specifically for the USAF training mission, the T-X is a perfect replacement for the legendary T-38 Talon.

  • Since the early 1990s, the U.S. Navy (USN) has focused on anti-air and anti-surface warfare – but now, the battlespace is moving underwater. Submarines and unmanned underwater vehicles (UUV) are seeing expanded operations worldwide, including those of a threatening nature. Twenty-five years ago, only a dozen or so countries were deploying submarines. Today, that number has climbed to 40.

  • Complex and rapidly unfolding emergencies and crises create challenging environments for emergency responders of all types to save lives, support critical functions, and restore essential services. These situations, which are often clouded with uncertainty, particularly in the early phases due to unsubstantiated information, require a fast-acting chain of critical decision making.

    Complex and rapidly unfolding emergencies and crises create challenging environments for emergency responders of all types to save lives, support critical functions, and restore essential services. Command center operators and front line personnel must coordinate with the government, private sector, and non-governmental organizations to understand what is occurring, diagnose an emerging situation, and respond appropriately. These situations, which are often clouded with uncertainty, particularly in the early phases due to unsubstantiated information, require a fast-acting chain of critical decision making.

     
  • With an aging fleet and a scarcity of replacement parts, the U.S. Marine Corps is currently facing a lack of mission-ready aircraft. Pilots are clocking in fewer flight hours as a result, raising concerns over how they can receive the training necessary for operational readiness.
