Tecnobit – Grupo Oesía has used its participation in IDEX 2021 to announce its first contract to develop a state-of-the-art Artillery Simulator for the UAE. The event gives the Spanish company the chance to showcase its latest advances in the fields of:

  • visionics (displays and IRST)
  • tactical and Secure Communications
  • advanced onboard electronic systems
  • optronics

Tecnobit – Grupo Oesía´s technology in the field of Simulation is well renowned, thanks to the long-standing involvement in the Spanish Field Artillery Simulator (SIMACA) as well as the Brazilian SIMAF, the largest military simulator in Latin America. With this new Simulator, known as SIMTAR, Tecnobit will provide the UAE’s Armed Forces with a hitherto unavailable capability. The new simulator is designed to train an artillery battalion and prepare them to join the manoeuvre unit and reach brigade level. It also provides precise technical and tactical training on artillery doctrine procedures, allowing instruction on:

  • mission planning
  • ground reconnaissance
  • surveillance
  • target acquisition
  • preparing and executing the firing mission
  • evaluating damage

Artificial Intelligence

The system accurately simulates the environmental conditions and characteristics of all entities present on the virtual battlefield. This is done with advanced artificial intelligence to autonomously emulate behaviour in the simulation exercise, as if units were real. The simulator also provides training for the Joint Terminal Attack Controller emulating Close Air Support actions with the assistance of an aircraft directed from a pilot’s post.

At IDEX 2021, Tecnobit is showcasing a range of its most innovative products at IDEX, such as:

  • its smart displays for 8×8 vehicles (two sizes)
  • aeronautical displays
  • optronic system (Leda, Castor and Odin)
  • the cifpecom encrypter

Tecnobit – Grupo Oesía is present alongside its local partner (Al Badie Group) at a shared stand, (CP-220) in the UAE pavilion. The company forms part of the Spanish representation  which is being coordinated by TEDAE.
