The National Service Academy (NSA) of the State of Qatar, which operates Rheinmetall’s LEGATUS live training system has now completed 30,000 hours of in-service training support provided by Rheinmetall Barzan Advanced Technologies QSTP-LLC (RBAT). The NSA contracted RBAT for an additional three years of support at DIMDEX 2022.
General Saeed al Naimi, Commander of the National Service Academy said, “The LEGATUS system is now an established part of the training provided by the National Service Academy, giving our cadets a highly realistic experience of conflict. We are excited to continue our collaboration with RBAT to expand the system to add new features.”
Specialised equipment for exercises of military operations in urban terrain (MOUT) can be configured and installed depending on the training and building infrastructure, which is due to be up and running at the NSA by the end of 2022.
Miles Lalor, the Director of Business Development at RBAT said, “The LEGATUS system is now proven in Qatar with RBAT supporting various deployments with the NSA such as ‘Battle Camp 2022’ in February. Thanks to the NSA, various security and defence entities in Qatar, have now had the opportunity to experience the realism provided by the system and we look forward to fulfilling their needs in the near future.”
