The Sniper Simulator, which was developed by HAVELSAN and whose effectiveness was increased with the opinions and suggestions of the security forces, will first be put into service at the Isparta Mountain Commando School.
Providing software-based solutions within the Turkish defense industry, HAVELSAN develops technological products that meet the training needs of security forces.
In this context, HAVELSAN has produced and put into use simulators for many platforms in the inventory of the Turkish Armed Forces, and has signed the Sniper Simulator in line with the needs of the security forces.
The simulator allows new sniper training personnel to practice aiming, distance determination, binocular adjustment and shooting techniques in a training environment with real equipment, without using real ammunition.
According to the information received by the AA correspondent, HAVELSAN developed the Sniper Simulator in a short time to meet the needs that arise with residential operations. The simulator has been further activated with the feedback received from the security forces in the elapsed time. The simulator will be used first in Isparta Mountain Commando School.
Different scenarios with real weapons and equipment
Working on a product that can be used in education by applying a real ballistic model, HAVELSAN improved the scenarios in the simulation and integrated the scenarios desired by the user into the system.
Thanks to the simulator, sniper basic training will be carried out much more easily and cost-effectively. Shooting training can currently be done at distances of 500-600 meters. For sniper training, it is necessary to create a security ring at much longer distances and in a wide area (2-5 square kilometers). Sniper Simulator eliminates this need and enables safe training with real weapons and equipment in the desired environmental factors and scenarios.
The person using the simulator can effectively receive basic training in a closed area at different times of the day, different altitudes, and different weather conditions.
Barely available from a limited number of manufacturers
There are not many sniper training simulators in the world. HAVELSAN’s solution differs from known products due to the use of real equipment and real ballistic models. Thanks to the use of real equipment, the sensitivity of the training and the realism of the experience are increasing.
Such systems are very difficult to obtain from a limited number of manufacturers. The products supplied are far from meeting the needs.
The simulator has technical features such as realistic 3D images and special binoculars option. The simulator, which has the capability of generating and recording scenarios and generating computer-controlled power, offers the opportunity to practice training at all desired distances.
