Elbit to Provide UK’s Ministry of Defence with Armoured Vehicle Training Solutions


Elbit Systems UK has been awarded a contract by the UK’s Ministry of Defence to provide, maintain and operate the Ground Manoeuvre Synthetic Trainer system (GMST) for Boxer armoured vehicles and Challenger 3 tanks under the British Army’s Project Vulcan.

The initial phase of delivery will support the first arrivals of the British Army’s new Mechanised Infantry Vehicle – Boxer.

The initial capability provided by Elbit Systems UK will provide a comprehensive Platform Trainer, delivering both collective and individual training requirements.

The programme will include high fidelity driver trainers and cabins for turret and armament variants backed up by a full digital, training management system.

“Elbit Systems UK is delighted to have been selected to provide
the British Army with such an important project,” said Martin Fausset, CEO of Elbit Systems UK. “The training of armoured vehicle crews is paramount to their operational effectiveness and safety, and we take great pride in the trust the UK MOD have placed in us to deliver this contract.”

The simulators will be networked to allow soldiers to train simultaneously in different formations, vehicles and locations, and can also be adapted to meet the training needs of all future armoured vehicles for the Army.

The contract will directly create and sustain jobs across a number of sites in the UK, within existing Elbit Systems UK facilities, a UK supply chain and on Army locations.

“Elbit Systems’ innovative training capabilities are already deployed extensively across the globe,” added Fausset. “We pride ourselves on being able to use our extensive British footprint and supply chain to adapt Elbit Systems’ global solutions for the specific needs of UK Armed Forces. Through our focus on spiral development and open
architecture we will continue to develop advanced capabilities to
support the UK and our Allies in the years ahead.”
