New contract for ECA Group

Pens are going to run out of ink if the rate of contract signatures at the IDEX 2017 show being held this week in Abu Dhabi continue at this pace. Amongst those signing contracts today was ECA Group which penned a new contract with a Middle Eastern client to deliver military vehicle simulators (MVS) for three additional schools. The group did not reveal the value of the contract, simply indicating that it was “significant“.


ECA Group explained that “the customer is very satisfied with the quality and efficiency of training carried out on the first three schools delivered by ECA Group. As a consequence, this customer decided to award ECA Group with this new contract.

Each of the schools is equipped with five MVS simulators and one instructor station. All of them are connected to the same simulation training system to ensure that military vehicle crews can be trained for individual as well as collective driving.

On MVS simulators, instructors and trainees can run training courses adapted for ab-initio driving, advanced driving and collective driving.

ECA Group has long been a major actor in the civilian driving simulator market and thus has long experience in implementing adapted training programmes.

By combining this experience to its expertise in technical solutions for the defence sector, ECA Group explains that it has “developed this new family of simulators for Defence combining advanced educational methods with realistic military interface and environment.
